Recipe by Da Huz

This soup is super easy, very healthy, and delicious! From Tunisia: Mediterranean Cuisine published by Konemann. If you are using canned beans or lentils, you do not need to pre-soak. Also, you can substitute some cayenne if you do not have harissa, although it's much better with the proper ingredients. By the way, the proper spelling is "bulgur" according to the cookbook, but Recipezaar seems to have auto-corrected the spelling to "Bulgar" in the list of ingredients.
