  • 1 cup finely ground bulgur
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup minced onion can use more/less to taste
  • 1 cup finely chopped parsley can use more/less to taste
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl or reusable container. Stir. Place, covered, in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  2. Remove, stir with a fork (helps it "fluff up" a little), season with salt to taste (and more of any of the other ingredients, if desired), and serve chilled or at room temperature. This can either be eaten on its own, inside some pita bread, or with crackers.


  1. It is imperative that you use fine bulgur (burgol/bulghur, they're all the same). You CANNOT use coarse bulgur; it will not work, and you will not like this recipe.
  2. You can use either flat leaf or curly parsley. Most Armenians use curly, but I've used both and there's not much difference in the flavors.
