I ran across a great chili recipe using bulgur wheat. It uses canned
goods, but I just replace them with fresh ingredients.
Good For You Chili
28 oz Crushed Tomatoes
2 16oz cans pinto or red kidney beans. I usually soak and precook dried
beans (about 2 to 2 1/2 cups).
1 16 oz can solid pack pumpkin
1 C. chopped onion
1 C. chopped red bell peppers
2/3 cup uncooked red bulgur wheat
1 4oz can chopped green chilies
2 1/2T. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1 t. minced garlic
1 t. salt
In large pan combine 4C water and all ingredients except garnishes.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered 30-35minutes or until
bulgur is tender. Serve garnishes in bowls at the table (light sour
cream, shredded ff cheddar, sliced green onion, etc.).

Also a bulgur salad recipe that is pretty good.
Pour boiling water over 1 C. bulgur wheat. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain
off excess water. Add 1/2 cup non fat plain yoghurt, 1 medium chopped
tomato, 1 chopped and seeded cucumber, 1/2 t. sage. Chill and enjoy.
Less than 1g Fat per serving. I used the leftovers to make sandwiches
with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, etc. Excellent!!
