Herbed Bulgur Pilaf with Shallots & Crispy Spiced Chickpeas
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.
tablespoons salted butter
large shallots, finely chopped
01In a large saucepan over medium, melt the butter. Add the shallots and ½ teaspoon salt, then cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the bulgur and cook, stirring constantly, until it has a nutty aroma, about 1 minute. Stir in 2¼ cups water and bring to a simmer over medium-high. Cover, reduce to medium-low and cook until the bulgur is tender and has absorbed the liquid, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the heat, uncover and drape a kitchen towel over the pan. Replace the cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
