Vegetable and Bulgur Wheel of Good Fortune

Servings 8 tortillas (cut 4-6 per roll)


  • 1 cup #3 coarse bulgur wheat
  • 1-3/4 cups chicken broth - low salt


  • 4 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives chopped


  • 8 tortillas spinach or wheat
  • 7 oz. container fresh hummus
  • 1 medium zucchini peel skin off, cut lengthwise into thin slices
  • 1 cucumber peel skin off, cut lengthwise into thin slices
  • 1 - 8 oz jar roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 container feta cheese crumbled
  • 16 large spinach leaves
  • 1 small container plain yogurt


  • Perfect fit for a creative twist on an appetizer that is found at many parties. A good way to get whole grains into the beginning of a meal.
  • Toast lightly in a nonstick skillet the bulgur wheat over medium heat (stirring constantly until golden brown). Pour bulgur wheat in to hot chicken broth (slowly), stir only once; cover - bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let liquid absorb until the bulgur wheat is al dente. Remove cover and let cool.
  • Combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and chopped chives in a small bowl and mix. Add to bulgur wheat and mix.
  • Lay tortillas on a work surface and spread a thin layer of the hummus mixture over each tortilla. Down the center of each tortilla, spread evenly bulgur wheat, zucchini, cucumber, pepper and chives; sprinkle feta cheese and top with spinach, dividing evenly among all tortillas. Roll up tightly into a log; spread edges of tortilla lightly with yogurt. Wrap with plastic wrap and twist ends to secure.
  • Refrigerate for a couple of hours until firm; unwrap the log and slice it into 1-1/2 inch rounds.
  • Serve as a finger food for appetizers.
