      I am not staring this as I made this gluten free using cooked quinoa and it came out 4 stars. I changed the cilantro to flat leaf parsley because when I found it in my fridge it had become old. It was definitely different flavoured than tabbouleh as many have been comparing it to. I used less goats milk feta cheese and kalamata olives, baby cucumber, extra fresh lemon juice per preference and the rest. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

      Very tasty! I roasted the bell pepper at.. uh.. I think 375 for about 30 minutes, then sliced it into bite sized pieces. I had to add a little more hot water than directed because my bulgur was still crunchy after 30 minutes. Other than that I followed the recipe very closely and it was delicious. I've madeTabbouli and this is similar but MUCH tastier.

      I used fresh 2 fresh tomatoes cut in chunks instead of the bell pepper. It worked great. This is a very refreshing, light dish which can be served with meat but we dat ratatouile and oven baked potatoes with yogurt with it. But i also like it on its own. Thank you for sharing!
