Very good! I used a frozen stir fry veg mix and threw in some fresh spinach. Used rotel because that's what I had on hand. Definitely going to make this again!

Wow! Great stuff!! I'm not a fan of whole wheat pasta or brown rice, so was skeptical about making bulgur; so glad I tried this recipe. Not "whole wheaty" or dry tasting. Moist with great flavor; my new favorite, healthy comfort food. Used about 6 tsp of olive oil (instead of 1/2 Tbsp) in order to get healthy oil in each serving. Used a yellow bell pepper instead of green. Chopped the onion and bell pepper into fairly small little pieces. Used 1 cup of drained canned tomatoes flavored with oregano, basil, and garlic. Also added 1 Tbsp. fresh, minced oregano. Used the broccoli from a bag of microwaved steamed broccoli (I steamed it in the microwave, then chopped it into really small bits, just before adding it into the pilaf.) NOTE: I used a bit more water (maybe 1/4 cup) after adding the tomatoes/bulgur/water/salt/pepper, while it was cooking over low heat (somewhere between steps 8 and 9).

Delicious! We love bulgur and always look for good recipes. This was so simple, yet so healthy and it looked good also! I used diced tomatoes with green chiles, because it's what I had. I also used a stock in place of the water. We used it as a main dish, but it could definitely be served as a side dish. Thank you!

Good & healthy recipe. Thank you! I served this with some parmesan cheese. The leftovers will make a nice lunch for tomorrow.

My husband actually liked this and he is picky. It's odd because I am not the picky one, but I did not like it much. It was "ok" but something about it did not taste good for me. Saying my husband liked it is saying something though! So anyone reading this, I would say try it! You may like it, you may not. Either way, it's a good healthy recipe!

Enjoyed this recipe so much! I used italian stewed tomatoes and added a bit of parmesan cheese before I served it.

I would have never tried bulgar but this recipe sounded good so I tried it. It was pretty good! Nice change of pace from our usual side dishes. The second time I made it without the green pepper and with pinto instead of black beans and I liked it even more! Great recipe. My DH said he felt healthier just be eating it!
