This is absolutely delicious. I have done it many times. So tasty. Watch the bulgur wheat that it doesn't become too soft. I buy packets of chopped swede and carrots locally and that makes the prep really easy. I have it as it is and tonight my husband is joining me but adding a roasted duck breast to it as he is a total carnivore
