One of the most simple and tasty foods I sampled in Turkey: Bulgar. It's a type of wheat that's been parboiled and dried. There are several ways to prepare it, but my favourite dish was a simple vegetable and bulgar casserole.
It's fairly easy to make and it's delicious. Start an assortment of veg. I used carrots, onions, peppers and sauteed them for just a bit of colour. Then puree them with a can of stewed tomatoes. Add seasoning: salt or soy sauce - something to give it a good savour.
I rinsed the bulgar and added the wheat to the veg puree and simmered the mixture until thickened. It's ready when the wheat is tender - like brown rice.
This is a perfect dish for chilly evenings and is full of vegetables, fibre and energy.
