This morning my son, who just woke up, asked me why doesn’t our town have “nowhere”. I was searching for words for a little bit and said there is nothing called “nowhere”. He retorted back, then how did Lightning Mcqueen (the race car in Cars movie) get lost in the middle of nowhere???? Every town should have a “middle of nowhere”. I was thinking to myself, how the heck am I supposed to know that, ask the people at Disney who made the movie. Phew, these kids make you sweat sometimes.. 

Well since the day started with a LOT of thinking, I decided not to think too much about dinner and to keep it simple and easy. Keeping with the “Cooking from the cookbook” theme I made Bulgur tabbouleh with guacamole from The Ultimate Book of Vegan Cooking, wrapped them up in a tortilla and called it a day..

Tabbouleh with Guacamole in a Tortilla Wrap
Instructions
  1. Cook bulgur as per package directions. If you are unlucky like me and have a package without directions, then bring 2cups of water to a boil, pour in bulgur; lower the flame to low, cover and cook until all the water is absorbed. It took me about 6-8 minutes for the liquid to be absorbed. Cover and set it aside until slightly cooled.
  2. Whisk lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl.
  3. Add chopped cucumber, green onions, herbs and the dressing to the cooked bulgur. Mix gently and chill for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to mingle.
  4. For guacamole: Mash avocado pulp with the other ingredients and set aside.
  5. To serve, warm the tortilla in a dry frying pan or wrapped in a damp paper towel in the microwave. Spoon some bulgur in the middle of the tortilla and top it with guacamole. Roll the tortilla up like a burrito and ENJOY..
Recipe Notes

Bulgur tastes very fresh and vibrant from the herbs and the slight heat from guacamole really balances all the flavors.
