INGREDIENTS

1 onion

3-4 muschrooms

1 carrot

3 scallions

fresh cilantro chopped rinse and wash sand off it)

3 cloves garlic

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2.5 cups of bulger wheat

5 cups chicken stock (1 cup = 236.5 mL = @1/4 L)

1 can (15.5 oZ/439g) Goya Black Beans and/or 1 can mixed vegetables

1 can (14.5 OZ/ 411 g) DelMonte Stewed Italian Recipe with Basil & Oregano

RECIPE:

chop the garlic, scallions, mushrooms, carrot and onions to your liking (fine for the garlic, rings for onion)

add 3 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Cannola Oil to a saucepan (4 Qt./@4L/ 16 cups)

stir fry the vegetables for 5 minutes on high

add 2.5 cups of bulger wheat (I like the coarser #3, you can use the finer #2, cooking times will vary on grain size)

and 5 cups chicken stock

bring to a boil

add 1 can of  black beans, fill the can with water and add to the mix

add 1 can (14.5 OZ/ 411 g) Del Monte Stewed Italian Recipe with Basil & Oregano; fill the can with water and add to the mix

Bring to a boil

Add chopped mushroom and cilantro (to taste)

Simmer, slowly and partially covered for 25 to 35 minutes, depending on the coarseness of the grain, checking every 10 minutes that the water is not totally absorbed and stirring! Add more water if needed; should end up with a creamy consistency not a soup!  Stir from base of pan to top as it sticks to the bottom otherwise.  Be careful–lower heat and stir–son’t burn! Let rest covered for 10 minutes.

Can serve hot as a side dish to meat, chicken and fish.  Store left over in the fridge; can re-heat or serve cold as a pilaf. Serve with a decorative sprig of cilantro on top.

ENJOY!
