Bulgur and Flax Pilaf

This is an alternative to rice or pasta as a side dish. It's got a great texture and flavor to accompany many meals. It's also a nice light meal with a hearty salad.

2 tbl. olive oil
1 c. bulgur wheat
1/4 flaxseed
1 small diced onion
1 small diced tomato
2 c. chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

In medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Stir in bulgur, flaxseed, and onion and cook about 3 minutes. Stir in tomato, broth, salt and seasoning. Cover and bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer. Cook another 15 minutes until all the broth is absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff, and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
