Submitted per request for recipes using bulgur and even though I haven't made this I thought it sounded really interesting and I am planning on making it soon. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (September 1984)

Well Ellie you should give this a try. It`s very good. as I was making it I though about adding onions and garlic. But I didn`t. It was great. I tasted this before adding the lemon and after and both were very good. The only change I made was I used 3 tablespoons of olive oil in place of the 6 tablespoons of clarified butter. Thanks for posting this Ellie!
