Bulghur and Dried Fruit Pilaf

    25 min

    Very basic yet tasty side that goes well with roast chicken or kebabs. Any type of dried fruit can be used, such as sultanas or dried apricots, but I prefer cranberries.

    • 225ml (8 fl oz) water
    • 8 tablespoons bulghur wheat
    • 1 chicken stock cube
    • 1 knob butter

    1. Bring water to a boil in a pot, and mix in bulghur, stock cube and butter. Cover pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes.
    2. Fluff cooked bulghur with a fork, and gently mix in the dried cranberries.


    Easily make this into a vegetarian dish by using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

    I have cooked this recipe twice with Harissa Chicken Traybake it is delicious and I shall be use often I know.  -  01 May 2012


    Good and really easy to make, but mine came out a little too salty. I will probably use a little less boullion next time.  -  04 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We enjoyed this very much. I substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water and chicken boullion. The small amount of butter really adds to the flavor, as does the sweetness of the cranberries. We will definitely make this again.  -  06 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
