In this episode, I'd like to share with you my 'Domatesli Bulgur Pilaf' recipe. It is also known as Meyhane Pilavi, (Pub Style Pilaf) It is easy to make, so delicious and healthy. We love it! Plus, bulgur has a low glycemic index and low GI foods provide natural, slowly released energy. You can also cook this dish with rice, couscous or quinoa instead of bulgur, if desired.
