Flax and Bulgur Pilaf

This recipe was completely new to me.  I found it on the back of a package of 'Bob's Red Mill' flax seeds.  I love flax seeds and am always happy to find another way to enjoy them.  This pilaf was delicious and now that I've tried it, I am imagining all the other grains I can combine with flax.  I think I'm going to mix it with my brown rice, quinoa, barley and the list goes on and on.
Here's what I did...

 Sautéed some chopped onions (recipe said 1/3 cup but I love onion so I used 1 1/2 onions) in coconut oil (recipe said butter)

 Added 1 cup bulgur

And a heaping 1/4 cup flax seeds and continued to sauté for about 3 minutes

Added a diced tomato

2 cups vegetable stock and 2 teaspoons cayenne (my addition...not in the recipe)

Brought to a boil, covered and simmered 16 mins.  Turned heat off and left lid on for 10 mins.  

I served it with baked trout fillets and sugar snap peas.  Yummy!!


  1. That does look very interesting. I will have to give it a try.
