Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 1 cup bulgur wheat
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 red bell peppers, roasted and sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion and minced garlic, and cook until softened.

  2. Add ground cumin, paprika, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper (if using) to the saucepan, and stir to coat the onion and garlic.

  3. Add bulgur wheat to the saucepan and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  4. Pour vegetable broth into the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the bulgur wheat is tender and has absorbed all the liquid.

  5. While the bulgur wheat is cooking, roast the red bell peppers. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the sliced peppers on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the peppers are soft and lightly charred.

  6. Once the bulgur wheat is cooked, fluff it with a fork. Add the roasted peppers and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

  7. Serve the spiced bulgur wheat with roasted peppers hot, garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
