Recipe Review

11th April 2012

andrew from Vancouver Island, BC

This is quite a good recipe, reminiscent of Bittman's tagine with chickpeas. It's a variation on Bulgur Pilaf with Meat. I cooked it exactly as written and it made a hearty vegetarian main dish. The cinnamon spicing is characteristic of this sort of dish, and gives it an interesting flavour. If I was cooking for adults I'd likely add a little spice to give this another layer of complexity, but this was for a meal including some kids, so I kept it heat-free.

I have a feeling it will improve after a night in the fridge. I'll probably make this every so often, as the family liked it, though it wasn't quite flavourful enough to make 4 stars.

Edit: I just upped this to 4 stars, as it definitely goes up a notch after a day of storage. I gave some to a friend who raved about it. As for myself, I'm still stirring in a little harissa for some heat, and definitely liking this one more.
