Dinner Win!

Last night I made the yummiest side dish for dinner. It was so yummy that all of the kids loved it! I was shocked because OMG it is actually good for you! I am going to call it Bulghur, Garbanzo and Orange Salad.

Here's the recipe(My husband :

Bulghur, Garbanzo, Orange Salad

2 cans garbanzo beans (14 oz)
1 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cups dried bulghur
2 lemons
1 can mandarin oranges

So, you drain the garbanzo beans and put them into a pan on medium heat. Stir them around for a bit and add the cumin and red pepper. Once the garbanzo beans start to look dry, add 4 cups water. Turn the heat up to high. Once the water is boiling, add the bulghur. This will need to cook for about 15 minutes, or until the bulghur is tender, but not overdone (i.e. mushy). When the water starts to be absorbed, turn the heat down to medium. Stir this a lot!

In a separate bowl, drain the juice from the mandarin oranges and add the juice from the two lemons (if you're feeling like it, also zest the lemons, but I was too lazy). Then add salt & pepper to taste. You'll probably need quite a bit since the bulghur seems to suck up the flavor.

Once the bulghur is almost done, add the lemon juice mixture. Let it cook for a bit longer until the juice is absorbed. Pull off the heat, add the mandarin oranges and serve!
