Cracked Wheat Pilaf
|Wheat||1 Cup (16 tbs), cracked|
|Onion||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped|
|Boiling consomme||4 Cup (64 tbs)|
|Salt||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
Melt butter in heavy saucepan.
Stir cracked wheat and onion into it.
Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
When cracked wheat is golden, add 3 cups of the consomme and salt and pepper.
Simmer, covered, over low heat for about 30 minutes, or until tender.
After 20 minutes, check for moisture; if necessary, add remaining consomme (start with 1/2 cup) to prevent scorching.
Serve instead of potatoes or rice.
