Description

Farm-to-table freshness comes through this lip-smacking robust salad made of Autumn spices and flavors. Pumpkin seeds, roasted hazelnuts, and raisons deepen the flavor profile and add savory tones to the bulgur, a thick grainy cereal primarily found in Middle-Eastern and Indian cooking. Cooking bulgur in low sodium chicken broth will soften and puff up the grain, locking in moisture; in addition, the vegetables will steam, keeping their flavor and nutritional values. Boost the earthy flavors by adding mint, sunflower oil, and lemon to the dish. After stewing for 20 to 30 minutes, this fluffy salad is ready to be served.
