Bulgur—cracked and partially cooked wheat—is cooked pilaf-style with a generous amount of shallots. Lemon, dill and chives, added at the end, brighten the dish and complement the nuttiness of the grain. For textural contrast and a flavor accent, we finish the pilaf with canned chickpeas that are crisped in olive oil and tossed with cumin and smoked paprika.




Don’t coat the chickpeas with cornstarch without first drying them thoroughly with paper towels. Excess moisture will cause the oil to splatter and prevent the chickpeas from crisping.
