Pitas Stuffed with Warm Bulgur
Serves: 4 Ingredients:
1 cup bulgar 4 whole wheat pitas, cut in half 1 tsp. sweet curry powder 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions (white and light green parts) 1 1/2 cups red grapes, halved 1/2 cups dried cranberries or golden raisins 1 yellow or red bell pepper, diced 2 tsp. olive oil 1/2 cup crumbled feta (I used gorgonzola) Green leaf or butter lettuce leaves
1. Preheat oven to 300 F. In medium saucepan, bring 1 1.2 cups water to boil. Remove from heat, stir in bulgur, and let sit, covered, until tender. 10 to 15 minutes (it will still be a bit chewy).
2. Meanwhile, heat pitas in warm oven. Transfer bulgur to large bowl, and add curry powder, balsamic vinegar, garlic, scallions, grapes, cranberries and bell pepper, stirring well.
3. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add bulgur mixture, and cook, stirring, until hot. Remove from heat, stir in cheese. Stuff lettuce and mixture into each pita.
