Cook Time: 25 minutes
Ready In: 1 hour 25 minutes
Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or stock
  • 1 (18.75 ounce) can adzuki beans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup stale whole wheat bread cubes
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 (12-inch) skewers

Directions:

  1. Combine the bulgur wheat and vegetable stock in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, or until liquid has been absorbed. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the adzuki beans, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, cilantro, hot sauce, and the egg. Mash with a potato masher or sturdy whisk until fairly smooth. Soak the bread in milk, then squeeze out the excess; add to the bean mixture along with the bulgur. Mix using your hands until everything is well blended. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425° F (220° C).
  4. Wet your hands, and form the kofta into 32 oval shapes. Press onto skewers four at a time. Brush with remaining olive oil. Place on a baking sheet or broiling pan.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn over, brush again with oil, and continue baking for 5 to 10 minutes, until crispy.
