 Lynn’s Notes: Bulgur is made of tender wheat kernels that have been steamed, dr
 ied, and crushed and is available in most stores. It has a mild nutty flavor an
 d texture of short-grain brown rice and when combined with vegetables, it makes
  a soup a meal in itself. Nearly any kind of summer or winter squash can be use
 d, and it can be more spicy if you add a few shakes of a Cajun mixture. (250 ca
