Freekeh Bulgur Pilaf with Pine Nuts

Servings 4


  • 1 cup #3 Coarse Organic Freekeh Bulgur
  • 1 small onion peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp. pine nuts (pignoli) toasted
  • salt and black pepper


  • Put the Freekeh bulgur in a bowl, cover with water, and let soak for 45 minutes. Drain the Freekeh through a sieve, shaking it gently to remove as much water as possible. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet. Add the pine nuts and sauté over low heat until lightly browned, approximately 2 minutes. Remove the pine nuts from the skillet. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and sauté the onion until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the drained Freekeh to the skillet and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in the pine nuts and mint, season to taste, heat through, and serve.
