Bulgur wheat lends meaty texture, fiber and protein to soups and stews, where it can cook in the broth. In our sweet and savory chili, we match the grain with salsa verde, peppers and edamame for a weeknight meal that makes it oh-so-easy to be green.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped green sweet pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 12 - ounce bag frozen edamame (about 3 cups)
  • 1 16 - ounce jar salsa verde
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup bulgur
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 3/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Cornbread Croutons (optional; recipe follows)


  1. In a 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add green pepper, onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in vegetable broth, edamame, salsa verde, the water, bulgur, cumin and oregano. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Stir in parsley and raisins. Serve topped with yogurt and, if you like, Corn Bread Croutons (see Tip).
