Tomato Bulgur Soup

Posted on 2012-07-24
Tomato Bulgur Soup

This super easy-to-make Tomato Bulgur Soup is the perfect combination of bulgur, tomato, mint, coriander and spices, which will make a great starter or even main course. I added chicken broth, but you can use vegetable broth.

Yield: Serves 7-8

  • 1 cup uncooked bulgur (cracked wheat)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cups fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried mint
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 7 tablespoons crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • salt and pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the bulgur, 5 cups water, carrot, salt and pepper to taste. Stir well. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 10 minutes.

Then add the tomato, chicken broth, dried mint, coriander, crushed tomatoes and ground cinnamon. Simmer covered over medium-low heat until bulgur and vegetables are tender (about 40-45 minutes), stirring occasionally. Add more water during cooking if necessary. Add the lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve tomato bulgur soup hot.
