2 tablespoons miso (I like barley or red miso)
2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 cup bulgur wheat, uncooked
1. Dissolve miso in 2 cups warm water. In a skillet, saute onion in olive oil. Add celery, carrots, and green pepper, continue cooking for 1 or 2 minutes.
2. Add bulgur wheat to cooking vegetable mixture in skillet, continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes as bulgur becomes toasted.
3. Add miso-water mixture to skillet and stir. Cover and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed.
4. Remove from heat and let stand at least 10 minutes before serving. Can be warm or cold.
This is a good, easy dish to bring to potlucks, as everyone seems to like it.
