Moroccan Bulgur Pilaf


Bulgur, sometimes known as cracked wheat, is a quick cooking grain that is a good alternative to brown rice for side dishes, salads and pilafs. High in fiber, with a slightly chewy texture, bulgur is a whole grain wheat product which is popular in Middle Eastern dishes. In addition to its high fiber content it also offers a source of B vitamins and manganese.¬† And it’s not just for Middle Eastern dishes either! Here, we’ve paired it with Aniseed Myrtle in this native Australian inspired Pilaf.

Makes 2 servings


1 cup dry bulgar, cooked according to package directions
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp Aniseed Myrtle
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 tbsp Tahini
1 tsp Aniseed Myrtle Extract
1/4 cup sultanas
5 apricots, chopped


Add all the ingredients to a medium size bowl and stir to combine.

Serve cold and enjoy as a side or lunch option, or heat up and use in place of rice in a curry.
