Recipe - Eech (Bulgar Salad)

Eech is like tabbouleh, but with tomato puree which gives it a neat orange flavor.  I served it cold but you could serve it at room temperature.  You could also throw in some diced bell peppers if you want.  Some families do.

Eech (Bulgar Salad)


2 cup Bulgar wheat
1 large onion, finely diced
15 ounce can of plum tomatoes
2 cups near boiling water
2 T pomegranate molasses
1/4 t allspice
1/4 t cumin
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1 large tomato diced
1 bunch parsley
4 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Saute the onion and plum tomatoes with the cumin.  Puree.
  2. Add the bulgar, the hot water and everything else.  Let sit for 30 to 45 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
  3. Let sit in fridge overnight to let flavors meld.
