Seriously Simple: Celebrate Dad with lamb brochettes on Father’s Day

Diane Rossen Worthington, Tribune Content Agency on

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint

8 red or yellow cherry tomatoes or a combination, quartered

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Fresh mint sprigs, to garnish

1. Heat oil in a deep large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and saute for 5 minutes or until it has softened. Add the bulgur to the skillet and toast it for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently.


2. Add the stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook over low heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

3. Remove the bulgur from heat and add the mint and tomatoes, blending carefully so that the tomato pieces stay whole. Add the salt and pepper and taste for seasoning. Garnish with mint sprigs and serve immediately.
