Number of Servings: 6


    1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 small onion, very finely diced
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 tablespoon chopped dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
    ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    1 cup bulgur, rinsed
    1/3 cup dried cherries, dried cranberries, or currants
    1/3 cup toasted pine nuts


Heat the oil in an 8-inch skillet or a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, dill, and allspice and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the bulgur and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook for 1 minutes more. Pour in 1 ¼ cups water, bring it to a boil, then lower the heat and cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in the currants, remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes more. Fluff with a fork, add the pine nuts, and fluff again.
