Chickpea Bulgur Dressing

This is a bit of a hybrid between Hummus and Tabbouleh. It can be eaten alone or added as a condiment to veggie burgers or atop a salad of romaine greens. It is fairly quick to come together, working the chickpeas and other ingredients while the bulgur cooks. It also holds in the fridge well for a week (although, it never gets that far in our house). The recipe can easily be doubled and serves as a good protein and healthy carb rich snack, easy lunch, and a go-to for dinner after a long day.
