Ingredients

Pilaf

1
cup uncooked bulgur
2
cups water
1
extra-large vegetarian vegetable bouillon cube
1/4
teaspoon cumin
Dash ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
(15-oz.) can Chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed

Vegetables

4
medium carrots, halved lengthwise
3
tablespoons olive oil
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4

1

1

4

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, combine all pilaf ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until bulgur is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; fluff with fork. Cover to keep warm.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat grill. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in large skillet. Reduce heat to medium. Add carrots; cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; blot dry with paper towels.
  • 3 In small bowl, combine oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon cumin and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Brush mixture on zucchini, summer squash, bell pepper, onion and tomatoes.
  • 4 When ready to grill, place vegetables in grill basket or directly on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally and removing vegetables from grill when tender and slightly browned. Cut vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
  • 5 Place pilaf in center of large platter. Arrange grilled vegetables around pilaf.
