Mystery grain

Bulgur - sounds like something Lord Voldemort would eat, but it's just a simple wheat cereal common in Mediterranean and Middle Eatern cuisine. Forgive my dorkiness here, but since I work in with gastrointestinal system quite a bit I always seem to be interested in nutritional facts, especially fiber, of which one cup of dry bulgur has quite a lot of - 25g, which is your daily need. So eat up!
Super Simple Bulgur Salad
(Can be used as a side, work lunch, appetizer or a snack)
1 cup cooked bulgur 
Half of diced red onion
Half of diced red pepper
Half of diced cucumber (some recipes say to seed it- I didn't)
Half a bunch of chopped parsley
1 can of rinsed chick peas
1 large garlic clove, minced 
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt an pepper to taste
Mix ingredients and enjoy! Yes, that's really it- the recipe is so simple and results quick and tasty!
