Peppers Stuffed with Bulgur, Nuts & Raisins
A nutty bulgur pilaf fills bright bell peppers. Make it a meal: Greek Revival Salad completes this vegetarian supper.
Note: Bulgur is made by parboiling, drying and coarsely grinding or cracking wheat berries. Don't confuse bulgur with cracked wheat, which is simply that--cracked wheat. Since the parboiling step is skipped, cracked wheat must be cooked for up to an hour whereas bulgur simply needs a quick soak in hot water for most uses. Look for it in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets, near other grains, or online at kalustyans.com, buylebanese.com.
