    Our cafeteria at work has been offering cooking light recipes. I tried this today and loved it. Came out here to find the recipe so I could make it at home.

    I made this for the first time for Christmas dinner and everyone LOVED it!! I made it without the leeks, but otherwise everything else was according to the recipe. It tasted great the next day, too - both chilled and warmed up. I removed some excess liquid after the stated cooking times, though. I served it with the baked herb citrus salmon (another EXCELLENT dish!), and green beans with hazelnut lemon butter (also great!).

    Excellent! Made this for dinner for company with the pork loin roast with port and prunes and it was absolutely delicious. Rave reviews from everyone!

    Seemed more like a risotto than a pilaf due to the bulgar. Very creamy and made a nice accompaniment to roasted pork loin

    This was very good and flavorful. My husband described it as "rustic". It was very creamy and somewhat porridge-like. I think it would be a good dish for a brunch or large breakfast with some eggs and fruit.

    This was delicious. Even my white rice loving daughter and husband enjoyed it. The sunflower seeds added a tasty crunch. It was a perfect was done before the rest of the meal so I just let it sit on the cooktop with no heat until we were ready to eat. I used craisins rather than currents. I will definitely make this again.

    I sauteed mushrooms with the leeks but otherwise followed exactly using 1/4 recipe for two people. Served with "Pork Medallions with Port Wine-Dried Cherry Pan Sauce" from this site (also excellent). Great meal and done in 45 minutes. with minimal prep.
