Arap Pilavi - Bulgar with Nuts and Dates
If you like dates you must try this lovely Turkish dish.
Delicately sweet, with a buttery toasted nut flavor.
Traditionally you should prepare this with bulgar, but I think It's great with couscous too.
3cups prepared bulgar or couscous
2Tbl. real butter
1/4cup chopped pistachios
1/4cup slivered almonds
1cup chopped dates
Prepare bulgar or couscous according to package directions.
In a large skillet, melt butter.
Stir in the nuts and stirfry until they just begin to toast.
Add the dates and water.
Quickly stir until the dates have absorbed the water.
Add the bulgar.
Mix well, long enough to heat through, while trying to keep the bulgar from sticking to the pan.
Remove from heat. Cover and allow to stand 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
