Vegetable broth

2 cup(s), use mushroom broth if available

Cooked bulgur

1 cup(s)

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1½ cup(s), chopped

Fresh mushroom(s)

  1. Bring broth, bulgur and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until bulgur is tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden and tender, about 8 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden and tender, about 5 minutes. Add spinach, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until spinach wilts, about 1 minute more.
  3. Spoon bulgur into skillet; stir over low heat until well-combined. Yields about 3 /4 cup per serving.


Buy pre-sliced mushrooms; frozen, chopped onions and bagged baby spinach for speedy preparation.
