Simple Grain Side Dish
This simple bulgur wheat recipe is one of those grains sides that works with just about anything, and is equally good warm or at room temperature. When it’s being featured as a hot side, it actually is a very good base for all sorts of things from chili to chicken cooked with a pan sauce to stew – these grains are mildly nutty and soak up all kinds of juices and sauces beautifully.
The only real ingredients in this grain dish besides the bulgur are some sweet caramelized onions and some fresh parsley, so you really don’t have to worry that the flavors will clash or compete with whatever else is on the plate.

Serve the Bulgur Hot or Cold
If you don’t cool the bulgur, but rather toss it while hot with the onion/parsley mixture it would be a fabulous side dish for just about any protein you could think of, from a holiday roast to a grilled chicken breast to a pan-seared steak to a poached filet of fish.

Here it accompanies some simply Roasted Cod with a lemony Yogurt Sauce, plus roasted carrots with green olive tapenade and some Parmesan Brussels Sprouts. A pretty plate.
And here is snuggles up to some Yogurt Marinated Chicken with an assertive bitter lettuce salad, and those darn carrots again – I love these roasted carrots.
