Biber Dolma and Bulgur Wheat Pilaf with Vegetables

We are in Turkey this week! I decided to not buy a cookbook because, well, we settled on Turkey on Sunday night and with Amazon Prime, we wouldn’t get the book until at least Wednesday morning and I do my grocery shopping on Tuesdays. I wasn’t able to find any at our library and I could have requested it from another library but, again, wouldn’t have had it in time for grocery shopping. The internet to the rescue! 

I found lots and lots of “Top Turkish Meals” lists and chose the ones that they all had in common and then started searching for recipes. I found this website, Ozlem’s Turkish Table, and, wow. she is amazing! If you want to read a fantastic food blogger, check her out. If you prefer mediocre (at best) please continue reading me!

This was a good easy meal but it wasn’t anything special. I’ve made stuff peppers before so I knew what to expect in  terms of flavor but I did learn a new way of preparing them. I always made the meat and rice separately and then combined them in the peppers and roasted in the oven. This is a faster method for sure. The bulgur pilaf was really good and buttery. I’ve had bulgur before but this was fluffier and tastier.

I think the part that probably didn’t work for me was all the bell pepper. When I first started cooking regularly, I always used bell peppers. They are really easy to cook with and are a great way to add flavor. We probably ate bell peppers at least twice a week for almost a year so ever since then, I’m not a huge fan. I don’t dislike them but I also don’t seek them out. Probably shouldn’t have chosen such a heavy bell pepper meal BUT the internet wouldn’t shut up about biber dolma so I had to do it. The internet is so pushy.
