Ready in 40 minutes

Bulgur is precooked wheat that's been dried and cracked. It has a nutty taste and is sold alongside rice in many supermarkets. This is a satisfying vegetarian main dish.


1/3 cup medium-grind bulgur
salt and ground pepper; course
1 cup grape tomatoes; halved
1/2 cup Fresh parsley; chopped
1/2 small shallot; minced
1 tbl red-wine vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 ounce fresh goat cheese; crumbled

Original recipe makes 1



1. In a heatproof bowl, mix bulgur with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup boiling water. Cover, and let stand until tender but slightly chewy - about 30 minutes.

2. Drain bulgur in a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to remove liquid; return to bowl. Add tomatoes, parsley, challot, vinegar and oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss. Top with cheese.
