Bulgur with Leeks and Swiss Chard

Bulgur with Leeks and Swiss Chard

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

This one-pot meal is a hearty, satisfying way to welcome the cool breezes of fall. If you can'’t find Swiss chard, spinach also works well.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 medium-size leeks, white and tender green parts chopped
  • 1 lb. Swiss chard, stems cut into 1-inch pieces, leaves torn into large pieces
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 4 tsp.)
  • 2 ¾ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup bulgur

1. Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and chard stems, and cook 4 minutes, or until softened, stirring often. Add mushrooms, and cook 5 minutes, or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and chard leaves. Cover, and cook 5 minutes, or until leaves are wilted, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Stir in broth and bulgur. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and bulgur is tender. Remove pan from heat, and serve.

I'm going to make this with the leeks. All I need is vegetable broth, ha.

I followed the recipe exactly and the veggies turned out mushy. Next time I'll cook the leeks, add the mushrooms, then the bulgur and broth, and greens for the last 5-10 minutes.

Sounds really good... Does it get better then next day? I'm always afraid dishes with greens aren't as good as leftovers.

This recipe was fantastic! My boyfriend and I both loved it. Ate the leftovers the next day and they were great! I don't know if they were better, but I would say just as good.
