 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.).
 Makes 6-2Cup servings; 228 calories; 11g Protein, 45g Carbos, 2g Fat
 Also a bulgur salad recipe that is pretty good.
 Bulgur Salad
 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!!
