Simple yet delicious


It has been a while since my last post …my only excuse is that I have been so busy preparing my two children for the 2nd semester of school and buying important things for my LO to come. And to top it all off, not having a good camera around makes me so upset that I can’t capture the loveliness of dishes as I really want…sigh. I really need to get one soon…maybe tomorrow; hmmmm just a thought of all the dishes that I want to take photos of.
One week is down from February and I have a big plan for new things to try. Nonetheless, I still love old, simple and straight forward dishes like the Bulgar Zucchini Pilaf; which I made the other day. It is called “Abu Shalhoob” and don’t ask me why?!!! This is the name I was told by my mother.
Bulgar Zucchini Pilaf (Abu Shalhoob)
Ingredients:

2 table spoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped finely
2 big size zucchini chopped medium cubes
2 cups of coarse bulgar (big size grain), washed and rinsed
3 cloves of garlic, minced

½ a bunch of cilantro, chopped
Salt, Pepper

Boiled water or chicken stock

Directions:
In a medium size pot, sauté onions in olive oil for a minute or two till they are softened. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt. Cook for few minutes till it is soft.


Add bulgar, salt and pepper then boiled water or stock (enough to cover the bulgar as you can add few sprinkles later if it needs it). Bring to a boil then simmer over low heat, half covered till bulgar absorbs the water and is cooked all the way through.



Add garlic and cilantro and toss to combine. Serve hot with a bowl of yogurt. I just love it!!!
