Really easy and very tasty, I used couscous instead of bulghur wheat. Next time I would reduce the amount of couscous (or cook it separately) as I found there seemed to be a lot more couscous than veg

Lovely. Be careful not to put too much bulghar wheat in though!

Absolutely delicious recipe. Swapped wine for extra stock and greek yoghurt was a nice serving suggestion.

I am not a lover of wine so I just made more vegetable stock and instead of the bulgar wheat I added quorn mince and the taste was amazing, utterly delicious, also I am doing the weightwatchers diet and this is only 1 point per serving!

Very nice and tasty, certainly not too sweet at all. Was a little unsure about cooking this after the negative comments but I shouldn't have worried as it was lovely and went down a treat. Didn't use any wine, just replaced that with more stock. I used cous cous instead of the bulgar wheat. Put in 200g of dry cous cous and upped the amount of stock and turned out great. Very filling too! Will be making again.

I had no wine or yoghurt so just added a little more stock and the whole family enjoyed this meal immensely. Very tasty and very filling. My only gripe is that I hate peeling butternut squash!

Having read the reviews I was very enthusiastic about this dish but unfortunatley was left feeling rather disspointed. The dish is very sweet will not be on my list of dinners as my hubbie could only manage one mouthful so I'm bringing the remainder to work with me for my lunch day after day after day !!!

This dish is great. I have made a few times. Everybody loves it!

Goes well with the parsnip rosti although is just as good on its own!

Lovely flavours! I used millet instead of bulghar wheat, which worked well, will definitely make again.

Although I'm not veggie, lots of my friends are, so I seem to cook a lot of meat-free dinner parties and am always on the hunt for new recipes. Thought this one fitted the bill perfectly, as it can accommodate possible late guests, uses easily-acquired ingredients and is very tasty. Recommended!

Really tasty although it didn't seem to make much and I eat really small portions, perhaps I went wrong somewhere? I will be making it again though and loved the bulghar wheat.

I made this for my family for dinner tonight and it went down really well.
Exceedingly easy to make, all ingredients were easy to get hold off (if not already in the store cupboard) and the result was great!

Found this easy to make and tasty, and a good way to get your veg in! If you make it without wine it's great for slimmers too. I added more bulgur wheat as wanted more texture and 75g just wasn't enough. Will make again.

I used stock instead of wine and served with soured cream and it was gorgeous.

this recipe is heavenly, so good in fact we are having it again this week (this is rare!) I used couscous and made it separately (adding hot water and leaving for five mins under tea towel) and then added to casserole at the end. This made it nice and moist. I served it with grated cheese, yoghurt and corriander. Great for lunch the next day and great for babies too, my 11 month old loved it with mashed avocado mixed in.
