Bulgur is a great source of vitamins and minerals and contains more fiber than rice and couscous. Bulgur is a common ingredient in Turkish, Middle Eastern, Indian and Mediterranean dishes. It has a light, nutty flavour and can be found in both conventional and organic forms.

2 medium sized potatoes
3 carrots
I onion
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 head of cabbage
1 cup bulgur (you can use quinoa too, if you like)
1 1/2 c. boiling water
Salt and pepper to tase
1 cup shredded sharp cheese (eg. cheddar, Kashkaval)
2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill OR 1 tbsp. dried dill

Slice the potatoes, carrots and onion into thin slices. Chop the cabbage finely. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the vegetables. Sauté the vegetables until the cabbage turns bright green and the carrots are still crispy.

In the meantime, place the bulgur in a saucepan and pour the boiled water over. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Light the stove and cook for 3 minutes longer. (if you are using quinoa, cook per package directions).

Mix the vegetables into the bulgur and add the cheese and herbs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in a large casserole dish and bake at 180C (350F) for 30 minutes.
