Posted for Zaar World Tour. Recipe comes from Moosewood. (I'm calling it East European...even though the tamari and cheddar don't quite fit that cuisine!)

I love this recipe! It's tasty and filling, and it's a cinch to put together. This is probably my favorite way to eat bulgur. Thanks for posting!

Despite the fact that I was distracted while making this (the phone rang) and didn't put any herbs or seasoning in the zucchini filling, this was still a great recipe! The bulgar base and cheese topping, I did get right and they are fab. DH wants me to try them with other fillings too. He suggests a butternut squash filling would work well. I think so too.
