Figs Stuffed with Bulgur

and Cranberry Salad

Figs, fresh or dried, with their sweet
luscious flesh and firm skin, are perfect
for stuffing. Here is a light healthy dish
to start off a summer meal.

10 fresh figs
Pomegranate concentrate,
for serving the salad
3% ounces bulgur wheat

the salad
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
coarsely
1
cup carrots, grated coarsely
2-3 Tbsp. fresh coriander, chopped
1
Tbsp. sesame seeds, roasted
3
Tbsp. pecans, chopped
2 Tbsp. pomegranate concentrate

Soak the bulgur wheat in water for 4-5
hours, until it swells up and softens. Or,
add half a cup of water to the wheat and
cook in a microwave oven for 3-4 minutes
until the bulgur softens and absorbs the
water. Allow to cool.
Mix the bulgur with the other salad
ingredients. The preparation up to this
point may be done in advance and the
salad kept in the refrigerator.
Halve the figs and scoop out some of
the flesh, which you can add to the salad.
Place two fig halves on each plate, heap
on the salad, sprinkle with pomegranate
concentrate and serve.
