Bulgar Pilaf

Finally, something to do with bulgar besides tabbouleh! The spices go very well with the sweetness of apricots. I slightly adapted this from one I saw on

½ med. onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp allspice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 large pinch of cloves
1 cup bulgur
1.5 cups water or chicken broth
¼ cup chopped apricots
¼ cup sliced almonds

Saute onion in oil for about 5 minutes over medium heat until onion is golden. Add spices and cook 1 minutes. Add bulgar and cook 1 minute. Add water and apricots and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in almonds (toasted makes all the difference).
