for the main course, i turned to a new acquisition, the flexitarian table by peter berley. the hubs and i were perusing the cookbook section in mckay's and i picked it up for $5. the photos are beautiful and i am eager to try out several. for my first cooking adventure, i chose the bulgur with roasted chickpeas, red onions and lemon. it is meant to serve 4 as a main course but i planned to live on it for a couple days and i did!
i made a couple changes to the recipe. first, when ever a recipe calls for water, especially when it is a grain, i substitute vegetable broth. for additional flavor, i added a couple cloves of garlic. since i am not a huge fan of cayenne pepper, i substituted some ground chili. lastly, i chose to keep the bulgur and the chickpeas separate.
