Taking an extra two minutes at the beginning of preparing this supersimple pilaf goes a long way toward making the finished dish deeply flavored.

Serves 4-5


  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped finely
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or oil
  • 1 cup organic bulgur
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (optional)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp. chicken bouillon
  • 2 tsp. parsley flakes


Sauté onions in butter or oil until transparent. Add bulgur and stir until bulgur is coated (about 1-2 minutes). Add all ingredients but almonds; cover and simmer on low 15–20 minutes. Fluff before serving.

Top with 1/2 cup roasted or raw sliced almonds, if you wish.
