Spinach with Bulgur (Bulgurlu Ispanak)

1 lb spinach, fresh or frozen
1cup bulgur, washed and drained
1 onion, chopped
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 ½-2 cup hot water
½ tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp salt to taste

In a pot, sauté onions with olive oil over medium heat. Stir in tomato paste and sauté for 1-2 minutes. If you are using fresh spinach, wash, drain and then chop. If using frozen spinach, just add them into pot. Cook them over medium heat stirring occasionally until most of the water evaporates (5 minutes).
Stir in bulgur and add hot water, crushed red pepper and salt. Close the lid and cook over low heat for 20-30 minutes, until the bulgur is cooked.
You may serve it with yogurt on top or on side.
ENJOY

I'd prefer coarse bulgur with this recipe. Fine bulgur might turn this this mushy.

Thanks
