Top Review by Juenessa

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!
