Kabak Yemegi (a.k.a. Turkish Noms)!


  • 1/3 cup bulgur
  • 1 onion
  • 1 courgette/zucchini striped and cut in moon shapes
  • 1 to mato peeled and chopped
  • 3 tbsp. Salca Turkish tomato thing, I used tomato puree instead
  • 2 cups water
  • a bunch of fresh dill
  • salt pepper, chili flakes, to taste
  • soy yogurt however much you want
  • pita naan, toasted bread, whatever for dipping!


  • To prepare zucchini, make stripes down it's length with a peeler and cut in half, then width ways to make small moon shapes.
  • Chop the onion until the pieces are small. I'd also cut your veggies smaller than mine in the picture, but that's just personal preference!
  • Fry onion with olive oil until soft.
  • Add courgette/zucchini (same thing) and cook for 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn the onion!
  • Add cut tomato and bulgur. Stir.
  • Boil the 2 cups of water and stir in the Salca/tomato puree, then add the tomato mixture to the rest with the dill (a lot of it, we're not talking a tablespoon here), salt, pepper, chili flakes, etc.
  • Simmer the completed mixture covered for 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve with yogurt and bread!
