Skillet Corn with Bulgur

Serving Size: 4
Total Time:

This recipe combines tomatoes and just-off-the-cob corn for an excellent summer dish; adding bulgur turns it into a hearty, satisfying meal.


  • 0.33 cup medium-grade bulgur
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 0.25 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 ears of corn, shucked and kernels cut off
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan of boiling water, cook the bulgur until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain very well and transfer to a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, parsley and lemon juice. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the corn and garlic and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the corn is charred, about 5 minutes. Scrape the corn into the bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Make Ahead: The dish can be refrigerated overnight. Serve at room temperature.
