Ingredients
 2 tsp olive oil
 1 cup coarse ground bulgur (I could not find bulgur, so I used quick cooking oatmeal that I had on hand)
 ¼ tsp ground allspice
  tsp ground cardamom
 3 cups milk (plus extra for serving)
 2 tbsp agave nectar or honey
 Pinch of salt
 ¾ cup chopped dried tart cherries
  cup slivered almonds, toasted (I did not toast mine)
Directions
1

Heat oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat.

2

Add grains and spices to pan and toast lightly, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.

3

Carefully (mixture may splatter) add milk, agave nectar and salt, stirring well.

4

Heat mixture over medium-high heat, but do not boil.

5

Reduce heat to low and cover partially (mixture will boil over if covered tightly).

6

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes (check at 10 minute intervals).

7

Remove from heat and stir in cherries; let sit for 3-5 minutes.

8

Garnish each serving with a sprinkle of the almonds and additional milk, if desired.
