Ingredients
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups coarse bulgur
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, chopped
  • 12 cups baby spinach (8 ounces), trimmed
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Directions
  • Cook onion in oil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.

  • Add bulgur, broth, and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until bulgur is tender and creamy (like risotto), about 20 minutes.

  • While bulgur is simmering, cook bacon in a skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until crisp, then drain on paper towels.

  • Stir spinach into bulgur until wilted, then stir in Parmesan, half of bacon, and salt and pepper, to taste. Serve "risotto" sprinkled with remaining bacon.
