Turkish Kisir - This was taught to my mom by our friend from Istanbul. This is a dish you have to experiment with, but it is mighty tasty!

Recipe Ingredients for Turkish Kisir

2 cup Bulgur, Dry
8 cup (8 fl oz) Water
1 1/2 medium Organic Yellow Onion
1 small Peppers, Sweet, Red
1/4 cup Olive Oil
4 tomatoes
4 cucumbers
1 red onion

Recipe Directions for Turkish Kisir

Note: This is all done by eye - actual amounts will vary depending on how the bulgur wheat absorbs the water. Using a food processor, create a red pepper paste using one red pepper and a little bit of olive oil. Set aside. Saute one large onion in 1/2 cup olive oil until onion is tender and almost brown. Add in the dry bulgur wheat and coat completely with oil; cook for approximately 5 minutes. Stir in approximately 1/4 cup of the red pepper paste. Pour in 4 cups of water and reduce heat to medium-low. Let the kisir cook for 1-2 hours, occasionally stirring. You will know that you need to add water to the bulgur wheat within the first 15 minutes; taste it! If the bulgur is still extremely crunchy and all of the water has been absorbed, add more water. Allow to cool for 20 minutes. Chop up the cucumber and tomatoes and toss in with the kisir.
