   coated with pan juices.
   
   Add broth, tomatoes, paprika, tarragon, salt and pepper.  Heat to a boil;
   reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 min.  Stir in celery, green pepper, chick
   peas and soy nuts; cover and simmer 15 min longer until bulgur is tender
   and juices are absorbed.
   
   Turn off heat, let stand, covered, 10 min.  Fluff with a fork.  Makes 8
   cups.
