    Something else. You don't need to add boiling water to the bulgar wheat if you leave it with the tomatoes, lemon juice etc overnight - the acid softens the bulgar enough. Very easy! - 26 Apr 2009


    I wanted to make a decent amount so I could have it with cold chicken for lunches. I compared a few recipes and glad I picked this one - only thing it needed was a little more olive oil. - 24 Mar 2009


    An easy and tasty packed lunch. Good if you have some fried halloumi with it too. - 26 Apr 2009
