This was my first time trying bulgur. It's a great recipe. (It reminds me of my cabbage roll stuffing.) The only thing I changed was to reduce the olive oil by half. Next time I'll try it without the honey as it seemed a little sweet. But overall, I have to give a 5 star rating!

I love this stuff it's a nice change from pasta & rice which I love. I added a few chopped mini carrots along with zucchini & yellow squash and red pepper flakes. I even ate it for breakfast and topped it with a fried egg, the runny yolk was amazing mixed with the Bulgur & veggies. Now I'm going to try it on my hubby this week! Thanks for sharing!
