Why settle for boring brown rice or another baked potato? Taking a couple of extra minutes to build a good flavor foundation can transform a sometimes-too-healthy-tasting grain like bulgur into a side dish that supports a saucy entrée without stealing the spotlight.

  1. 1Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When it shimmers, add shallots and cook until just beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook until moisture released is almost evaporated, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. 2Increase heat to medium high. Add wine and cook until almost evaporated, about 3 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil. Stir in salt and bulgur and cover.
  3. 3Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in carrots and simmer until fork tender, about 5 minutes more. Turn off heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
