Bulgar with Mixed Greens


greenpulav1

Spring is almost here.  With spring coming, the whole nature will change to green and with colorful blossoms every where.  So to celebrate this spring and the warm weather I thought to make a dish that has only green vegetables and leaves.  Green vegetables and green leaves are packed with a lot of vitamins and minerals.  So for protein I added roasted tofu which is slightly yellow and mingled with the greens.

  • 1/2 cup Bulgar

Method:

  • Add hot water to soy granules and cover and let stand for about 15 minutes
  • Meanwhile  slice mushrooms thinly and then cut them diagonally into 2 halves.  Slice bell pepper into thin strips.
  • Cut off the end of Bok-Choy head and separate them into individual leaves.  Wash thoroughly and chop off the thick stems.  Cut thick stems diagonally into about 1/2 inch pieces.  Torn the leaves roughly.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F.  Spray oil to a cookie sheet and spread sliced mushroom in a single layer and roast for about 20 minutes
