Burghul the armenian way.

1 onion chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of tomate pacte
1 can of chick peas rinsed
2 cup of burghul
2 cup of water
Red pepper to taste

Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil. Add chickpeas, tomato paste, burghul and water, bring to a boil, reduce eat. It cooks quite fast, taste thé burghul should still feel a little crunchy, serve warm with red pepper if you wish. We often eat this with yogourt on the side.

When you make meatloaf or meatball tou Can use burghul that you soaked in warm water to the meat, great way to increase fiber in your diet.

In bot recipes you could use quinoa instead of burghul.
