Bulghur Salad with Walnuts

I have a vast cookbook collection, and as so often happens, some tend to just sit on the shelf.
I set a goal to make a dish from every cookbook I own - guess that will justify my habit!
This simple dish came from a Mediterranean Cooking CB (Claudia Roden)

3/4 Cup fine or med. ground Bulghur
6 medium tomatoes, peeled and pureed in a food processor (or use canned)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teas. tomato paste
3-4 T. Olive Oil
Chili flakes or Chili Powder to taste
1 small mild onion or 5 scallions, finely chopped
2/3 cup walnuts or pistachios.

Mix the bulghur with the tomatoes, lemon juice and tomato paste and set aside for 1 hour (it took mine 2 hours) or until the grain has absorbed the juice and become tender. Add oil, salt and chili flakes to taste. Just before serving, add the onion and walnuts.

Chef Patrick gave me the recipe for this dish. I used Eggplant, Potato and Peas. Another version would be Cauliflower instead of Eggplant.

Chef Patrick's Veggie Torte

Patrick made this incredible Torte from farm co-op veggies - looks too beautiful to eat.
Just replace topping with Soy Butter and Parm. for vegan version.
