This was really delicious. The combination of the slightly sweet onions with the mushrooms and spinach was fantastic and I really like the bulgar, which I haven't had for quite a while. I'm going to try and find a variety of way to use it over the next few weeks. I ate this cold, so it's just as good cold as hot and I served it with a rose veal escalope for an extra 3 ProPoints.
Caramelised Onion, Mushroom and Bulgar Pilaf (adapted from www.weightwatchers.co.uk)
(6 WW ProPoints per serving)
240g bulgar wheat
2 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
225g mushrooms, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
Cook the bulgar wheat in a pan of boiling water according to the packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden and tender, about 8 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are golden and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until spinach wilts, about 1 minute more.
Spoon the bulgar into the frying pan and stir over low heat until well-combined. Serve.
