Ingredients

  • 1 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 cup Bulgur
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Mint chopped

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, bring broth and smoked paprika to boil; add bulgur and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and bulgur is tender. Let cool completely. Stir in pumpkin, flour, garlic, mint and half each of the salt and pepper; set aside.
