Peeled Wheat Pilaf with Mushrooms

Delicious peeled wheat pilaf with mushrooms. Another one of my quickly made up meals. This one is inspired by another dish from Armenian cuisine. A simple meal made with cooked wheat topped with caramelized onions, seasoned with black pepper. My version of the dish is slightly different with extra seasonings and veggies added. Have to admit , the dish turned out even better than I was expecting. Very rich and flavorful . Instead of onions, I used shallots, that have milder and slightly sweeter taste, also added a good amount of white mushrooms, seasoned with cumin, turmeric and peppers.







As a side, I thought something tangy and fresh will be a good addition to complete the meat.

This peeled wheat pilaf can be a good addition to lent menu . It’s delicious and filling, not to mention, very easy to cook.
