I ate bulgur wheat for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and decided that I really liked the taste. I took some liberties with this recipe to make it more to our liking. I omited the mushrooms, added about 1/2 cup of green bell pepper and sauted it with the onion. At the end, I chopped up a couple of tablespoons of fresh cilantro instead of the parsley and then squeazed 1/2 a fresh lemon on top. Yum! This is a very versatile recipe and I'm sure you could add other veggies too. My husband and I both enjoyed this side dish very much. Thanks, Mysterygirl!

This is so good and you can do so much with it. I added some chopped sun dried tomatoes for a little extra flavor. I've also used this mixture to stuff grilled eggplant rolls topped with homemade tomato sauce which is also yummy. This is a great recipe and so low in calories, thanks Mysterygirl.

Easy to make, esp. if you buy sliced mushrooms. I shredded the zucchini also. Forgot the parsley (would have used dried anyways). So, I wonder if the parsley would have added more taste? I think next time I may add more garlic. Nice, with the mushroom flavor!

I was able to find Bulgur Wheat at the market and made this for todays lunch. After reading toni's review I used 3/4 cup of broth and that worked fine. I added a 1/2 tsp of Penzeys Italian herbs and this was very good. I want to try it with eggplant added as I think that would be nice addition. Very simple to make and easy to enjoy.

This was so yummy and full of good flavor. I just loved it and will make it often perhaps over time adding different herbs or spices to complement the rest of the meal. My one comment, which is more a reader issue is that the amount of liquid should be used at the lesser amount. I used a full cup because that is typical for this grain. However the veggies give off lots of liquid which meant the final dish was a bit mushy and there was still small polls of liquid at the end of the cooking & sitting time. Note this did not stop us frm enjoying this side with grilled chicken. I'm planning to make this again with 3/4 or even 2/3 cupof broth and will update my review. Excellent side. Thanks MG.
