Caveat: It's important to check your bulghar for pantry moths prior to chopping up all the ingredients for tabouli - and slicing your finger on your ginsu-sharp kitchen knife.

the best Tabouli Recipe
from the Moosewood Cookbook (of course)

1c dry bulgar
1.5c boiling water
1.5t salt
.25c fresh lemon or lime juice
1t crush fresh garlic
.5c chopped scallions (include greens)
.5t dried mint
.25c olive oil
black pepper
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1c chopped parsley
feta cheese
.5c chickpeas
1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped cucumber or summer squash
.5c grated carrot

Combine bulgar, boiling water and salt in a bowl. Cover and let stand 15-20 minutes, or until bulgar is chewable.
