A delicious, easy-to-make Armenian/Italian-inspired dish bursting with flavor. You can substitute green beans or cauliflower - or whatever suits your tastes - for the red cabbage! Excellent served with a green salad and crusty bread.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, and saute the onions about 5 minutes, until tender. Stir in the garlic, then mix in the cabbage and red bell pepper. Continue to cook just until slightly tender.

  • Stir the cracked wheat into the skillet. Pour in the tomato sauce and water, and bring to a boil. If the liquid does not completely cover everything, add more water and tomato sauce. Season with dried basil, paprika, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed. Top with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves to serve.

This was a really good dish. I had to add extra tomato sauce though. Next time I think I will try green beans and red peppers - yum! Read More

I did not care for this recipe. My 18 month old son ate it but I had to add copious amounts of chilli sauce just to make it edible. Read More

I wanted to use up my bulgur and was searching for a recipe when I found this. Exactly what I was looking for! I love the idea of using cabbage and the taste was excellent. I used eggplant instead of pepper and a special local cabbage which is in season. I highly recommend. Read More
