My local gourmet grocery store use to sell single servings of this, but they quit selling it. I was addicted to it, so one of the employees emailed me the recipe so I could do it myself. A great vegetarian dish or side dish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup bulgur
  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 2 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups thickly sliced zucchini
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ⅓ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated feta cheese
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sesame seeds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place bulgur in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover and set aside until water is absorbed.
  2. 2 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square casserole dish.
  3. 3 Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until just translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add zucchini, oregano, basil, marjoram, and black pepper. Cook until zucchini is tender but not falling apart, about 5 minutes more.
  4. 4 Beat eggs lightly in a bowl. Add feta cheese and cottage cheese.
  5. 5 Add parsley, tomato paste, and tamari to the bowl with the bulgur and mix well.
  6. 6 Layer bulgur mixture, zucchini mixture, cheese mixture, Cheddar cheese, and tomato into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Cover with aluminum foil.
  7. 7 Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 45 minutes.

You may remove the cover for the final 15 minutes if a crustier cheese is desired.
