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!
