I couldn't find bulgar at trader joe's or at safeway so I'm subbing quinoa and trying this tonight!

I made this recipe. It is pretty good, with a basic, hearty taste. I used shitake mushrooms. Next time I will decrease the amount of bulgur to 1/2 c or 3/4 c (and the broth, accordingly) so that the outcome is similar to the picture.

I wouldn't have a problem with this, whatsoever, as I'm not a vegan, but wouldn't eating this with cheese be... non-vegan???

That looks really good! I'll have to try it, without the oil.
