Bulgur with baked pepper sauce

Since I gave up eating meat, I started to experiment with all sorts of recipes and ingredients that until now I ignored or did not give too much importance to. Among the new ingredients, bulgur was one that surprised me very pleasantly. I like it very much and I would be able to eat it simply without any addition. But if I make any more delicious sauce, I'm already ecstatic

Today's recipe is not a sophisticated one, on the contrary… it is a simple recipe that is prepared very quickly and the taste is… sensational, yes… I think I said right! 😉

Bulgur with baked pepper sauce


  • 1/2 cup bulgur
  • 3 peppers kapia copti
  • 1 onion
  • 1 well cooked tomato
  • salt and pepper
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • a few basil leaves

Preparation Bulgur with baked pepper sauce:

Bring water to a boil with a pinch of salt. When it starts to boil, put the bulgur, cover with a lid and turn off the heat. Leave it covered until the bulgur softens enough. We put it in a thick sieve and let it drain well.

Bake the peppers, as well as the tomatoes. Put in a bowl, sprinkle with a little salt and cover with a lid. Peel a squash, grate it and cut it into cubes.

Finely chopped onion, lightly fry in a few tablespoons of olive oil. Add the tomatoes one by one, then the peppers and mix well. If necessary, add a little water. At the end add the crushed garlic, adjust the taste of salt and pepper.

Over the sauce in the pan, add the hydrated bulgur, bring a few more boils, while adding the finely chopped basil.

It is served hot, but it is very good and cold. 😉
