Bulgur with Fava Beans

  • SERVINGS: 8
  • HEALTHY
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 1 1/3 cups bulgur (about 1/2 pound)
  2. 1/2 cup pine nuts (about 3 ounces)
  3. 1 pound young fresh fava beans, shelled, or 1 cup frozen baby lima beans, thawed
  4. 1/2 cup finely diced seeded tomato
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1/4 cup chopped dates
  7. 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  8. 1/2 cup olive oil
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the bulgur and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand uncovered until the bulgur is softened and chewy, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°. Toast the pine nuts for about 7 minutes, or until golden. If using fresh fava beans, blanch them in a small saucepan of boiling water until just tender, about 5 minutes. Peel off the tough skins. If using limas, blanch them in a saucepan of boiling water until tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Drain the bulgur in a fine sieve, pressing lightly to extract as much water as possible. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the fava or lima beans, tomato, garlic, dates, lemon juice and oil. Season with salt and pepper and let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Stir in the cilantro and pine nuts.
