 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 c Chopped red or green bell
  • -pepper, or combination
  • 1 c Chopped zucchini or yellow
  • -squash, or both
  • 2 1/4 c Bloody Mary mix or
  • -vegetable juice
  • 1 c Bulgur wheat
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 ts Dired basil, crushed, or 1
  • -tablespoon fresh, minced
  • 1/3 c Chopped green onions


Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Cook pepper(s) and squash(es)
until tendercrisp, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in Bloody Mary mix or vegetable juice, bulgur, lemon juice, and basil.
Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 5 to 8 minutes or
until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.

Garnish with green onions. May be served warm or as a salad at room

To Microwave:

In a 2quart microwavesafe casserole dish, combine oil, red pepper and
zucchini. Cover with lid; microwave on high 4 minutes or until vegetables
are tendercrisp, stirring twice during cooking.

Add vegetable juice, bulgur, lemon juice, and basil. Cover and microwave 10
minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring twice during cooking. Let
stand, covered, 5 minutes. Garnish with green onions.


I have made this in a crockpot, tossing all the ingredients except the
basil and green onions in and cooking on low for 8 hours, adding the basil
after 7.5 hours, and garnishing with green onions just before serving. The
resulting dish is indistinguishable from one made using the stove top
method. I refuse to try the microwave method. I generally use only two
cups of Bloody Mary mix since the brand I buy comes in quart bottles.
