Bulgur with Blueberries

Suzanne’s been quick to keep the recipe ideas updated. Last week’s blueberry pickles are already online at http://grassfedcow.com/ingredient/blueberries/. But if you need more ideas, I’ve got one more offering. It’s a little sweet from the orange juice and would make a fabulous breakfast. Top it with yogurt maybe? It came originally from Prevention Magazine.

Do you know bulgur? They sell it bulk at Sevananda and Whole Foods, and probably at other places as well. You don’t have to cook it at all, just soak it in water to soften the grains. The original magazine recipe called for cooking the bulgur, but I’ve adapted it so there’s no more heat in the kitchen.

Pickled Blueberries

Chefs are pickling things like crazy these days. It’s the same tradition that has kept food preserving going for centuries – the desire to put up the bounty of the season so it can be enjoyed throughout the year. This recipe is from chef Tyler Kord of New York City who created them to go with a sandwich of Brie, pistachios and chervil. I think they’d be delicious on any sandwich or with any dish where you might be thinking “chutney.”

This one is so simple you won’t believe it. No heating of anything.
