  1. Cover bulgur with hot water and allow to stand for 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly, squeezing out additional water with hands.
  2. Cook the fresh peas in boiling water for 1 minute and drain. Or defrost frozen peas but do not cook.
  3. Combine peas with bulgur and remaining ingredients except for yogurt. Then stir in yogurt to coat thoroughly.
  • Use the coarse bulgur, not the cracked, sometimes called cracked wheat, which has a finer grain. For added fiber (plus calories and fat), 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds may be added.
