 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    olive or vegetable oil
    1      cup           chopped red or green
                         bell pepper -- or combination
    1      cup           chopped zucchini or
                         yellow squash -- or both
    2 1/4  cups          Bloody Mary mix
                         or vegetable juice
    1      cup           bulgur wheat
    1      tablespoon    lemon juice
    1      teaspoon      dried basil -- crushed or
    1      tablespoon    fresh -- minced
      1/3  cup           chopped green onions
 Instructions: ------------- Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat.  
 Cook pepper (s) and squash (es) until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring 
  occasionally. Stir in Bloody Mary mix or vegetable juice, bulgur, lemon  
 juice, and basil.  Heat to boiling.  Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer  
 5 to 8 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Garnish 
 with green onions.  May be served warm or  as a salad at room temperature. 
 To Microwave: ------------- In a 2-quart  microwave-safe casserole dish, 
 combine oil, red pepper and zucchini.   Cover with lid; microwave on high 
 4 minutes or until vegetables are  tender-crisp, stirring twice during 
 cooking. Add vegetable juice, bulgur,  lemon juice, and basil.  Cover and 
 microwave 10 minutes or until liquid is  absorbed, stirring twice during 
 cooking.  Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.   Garnish with green onions. 
 Crockpot: --------- I have made this in a  crockpot, tossing all the 
 ingredients except the basil and green onions in  and cooking on low for 8 
 hours, adding the basil after 7.5 hours, and garnishing with  green onions 
 just before serving.  The resulting dish is indistinguishable  from one 
 made using the stove top method.  I refuse to try the microwave  method.  
 I generally use only two cups of Bloody Mary mix since the brand  I buy 
 comes in quart bottles. From: Maggie MWORKMAN@VM.CC.PURDUE.EDU
