Course Appetizer


  • 1/2 c Bulgur; dry 
  • 1 c Water; boiling
  • 1 Tomato; chopped
  • 1/2 c Fresh parsley; chopped
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 1/8 ts Garlic powder
  • 1/4 c Green onions; chopped (about 3 green onions)
  • 1/4 c Fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 c Garbanzo beans, cooked


  • Put the bulgur in a small mixing bowl. 
  • Pour the boiling water over the bulgur. Mix.
  • Cover with a towel and let stand for 1 hour. After 1 hour the excess water should be removed.
  • The easiest way to do this is to pour the bulgur and water into a fine mesh strainer.
  • Let the water drain off, pressing the bulgur with your hands to remove as much of the excess water as possible.
  • Place the drained bulgur in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients.
  • Toss well to mix. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to blend flavors.


HELPFUL HINTS: This is a great make-ahead dish, easy to take to a pot-luck dinner or picnic. Try it stuffed in pita bread for a different sandwich idea. This recipe can be doubled or quadrupled easily for larger amounts. Keeps well in regrigerator.
