Mac's Cajun Dirty Bulgur

Submitted by: JESPAH

Introduction

This is my friend Mac's recipe. The cajun seasoning was counted in the recipe as pepper, but it's possible that it had a little salt in it. Calculate accordingly. This is my friend Mac's recipe.

Ingredients

    1 T canola oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
    2 cups uncooked bulgur
    1 pound ground turkey
    4 cups chicken broth
    1 tsp cajun seasoning
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/4 tsp red pepper
    1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions

Heat oil in medium saucepan. Saute onion and green pepper (and celery) until tender. Add bulgur and cook, stirring, until slightly toasty. Meanwhile, fry turkey in skillet (season to your liking), breaking into small pieces. Drain well. Add turkey to bulgur with chicken broth and all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Lower temperature to slow cooking. Cook covered until broth is absorbed well in bulgur - 35-40 minutes. (It only took 20 minutes for me, so be sure to check it sooner.)

  • Very yummy! It doesn't look too pretty, but the taste is fantastic. I used red bell peppers instead of green (what I had on hand) and that added nice color. I never would have thought to make bulgur this way, but am inspired to experiment now and try diferent one-pot dishes using it. Thanks! - 7/19/09

  • A new household favorite! This was our first experience with bulgur. I cut the sodium by using low-sodium chicken broth and salt-free cajun seasoning. I also increased the veggie quantity, and used tabasco sauce instead of the red pepper. This made 4 huge servings, and was a very filling dinner. - 5/11/09
