My family loved this recipe. We're new to Bulgur and love the versatility of it. I doubled the bulgur and water. You really do only soak it in the boiling water for 30 min. So easy! I only used a small amount of parsely as we're not fond of the strong taste of it. 1 cucumber. 1 red bell pepper as we are wimpy tongued and don't tolerate red pepper to well. I also used much less olive oil as it can be overpowering. I added chopped garlic and salt and sweet chopped tomatoes. I left the feta at this amount in the recipe and it was plenty. Next time I'll also add Kalamata olives. We will definitely make this again.
