    Engrossed's Note:

    From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. "In this elegant soup, a refreshing cucumber-yogurt puree forms a moat around a mound of brightly seasoned bulgur. It's the perfect light lunch in the dog days of summer." *Time does not include time to cook bulgur or chill.

      This was tasty and refreshing. It makes a lot of soup, I used 6 cucumbers and still had enough for more than 4 people. I accidentally had no tomatoes so substituted tomato paste, otherwise made as directed - I used brown rice.
