The name of this pilaf comes from the word silek, which is Arabic for Swiss chard – although I usually use kale because it’s more readily available.  This dish reminds me of a Middle Eastern version of Hoppin’ John. Serve this topped with Tzatziki Sauce (page 118). Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and spice blend and cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the kale or chard, scallions, black-eyed peas, and the soaked bulgur.  Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the ingredients are tender and the flavors are well blended, about 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Taste and adjust the seasonings, if needed.  Serve hot. Note: Zataar or baharat spice blends are available in Middle Eastern markets, gourmet grocers, or spice stores.  They are also available online.  If unavailable, combine the following: 1/2 teaspoon each ground black pepper and paprika; 1/4 teaspoon each ground coriander and ground cumin; 1/8 teaspoon each ground nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon.
