Recipe Serves 4
- Bring bulgur and 1 cup of water to a boil over high heat. Stir, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Salt lightly and fluff with a fork. Set aside.
- In a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add half the onions and the garlic. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes, until cooked but still crisp. Stir in beans and cook just until beans are hot. Remove from heat.
- Heat a large, dry frying pan over high heat. While it heats up, lay a tortilla on a flat surface. Layer with 1/4 of the cheese, bulgur, and bean-vegetable mixture. Roll up tightly, tucking in the ends.
- Cook seam-side-down in the dry pan until the tortilla becomes crisp and brown. Flip over and cook the top. This will also help melt the cheese.
- Slice burritos on the bias.
- To make the slaw, toss together the cabbage, remaining onion, carrot, mint and rice vinegar. Serve alongside the burritos.
