 This is based on the fatfree tabouli served at einste!n Bagels.  Their 
 nutritional listing said theirs is 150 calories and .5 fat gram per 1
 cup serving.
 Here's my recipe:
 natal!e's fatfree Tabouli
  - based on the einste!n ingredients and other tabouli postings on this list
 1 cup		dry bulgur
 2 cups		water
 1 15 oz can 	black beans or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
 1 cup		canned or cooked frozen corn niblets
 1 cup		chopped cucumber, peeled and seeds removed
 1/2 cup		chopped red onion
 1/2 cup		chopped fresh parsley
 1		chopped fresh tomato
 1		chopped small bell pepper (red or green)
 1/2 cup		chopped celery
 1/2 cup		mild salsa
 1/4 cup		fresh lemon juice (1/2 large lemon)
 2 TB		balsamic or wine vinegar
 2 cloves	minced garlic or 1 tsp no-oil garlic in a jar
 1/8 tsp		freshly ground pepper
 1/4 tsp		salt-free seasoning (ie Mrs. Dash)
 Boil water.  Put bulgur in a good sized bowl and pour the boiling water
 over it. Cover and let stand one hour.  Squeeze or drain off any remaining
 liquid.  Add the remaining ingredients and toss until thoroughly mixed.
 Cover and refrigerate overnight. Correct seasonings as desired, possibly
 adding a bit more lemon juice and vinegar for additional tang.  Serve as a
 salad, on pita bread, on bagels, for a lunch meal, a snack, a side dish,
