Bulgur Pilaf with Vegetables (Sebzeli Bulgur Pilavı)



3 cups bulgur
4 small tomatoes (peeled & diced)
½ white or yellow onion (chopped)
1 chopped green pepper (long green pepper preferable but any kind will work)
8 cap mushrooms (chopped)
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 tsp cumin (optional)
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
4 cups chicken broth or water

Sautee the onions and the green pepper for 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms, tomatoes and basil. Cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the tomatoes become very soft. Add the bulgur, cumin, black pepper, salt and mix together for 3-4 minutes. Pour the broth or water and cook on medium heat until the water starts boiling. Once the water starts boiling, turn the heat to low and cook covered until all the water is evaporated. Serve warm.
