Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Courtesy of:  Chef Brian Doyle

1 lb. bulgar wheat
Salt and pepper
1 lb. beets
1 lb. kohlrabi
1/4 lb. leeks
1/2 lb. asparagus
1/4 cup chopped parsley
4 cups beet greens
3/4 cup olive oil (some for grilling and some for dressing)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Cook the bulgar according to package and let cool.

Start the beets by tossing them with some olive oil and salt.  Then wrap them in foil and place in oven for about 30 minutes or until just tender.  Let them cool enough to handle and peel the beets by rubbing the skins off with fingers.

Slice leeks and kohlrabi.  Toss the kohlrabi, leeks, and asparagus with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Grill them until just marked (about 2-3 minutes).  Let cool.

Chop all the vegetables and toss with the bulgar, vinegar and a bit more olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.

Try using quinoa instead of bulgar and be sure to try different veggies as they come into season. Read More...
