Greek Gemista style – Stuffed Veggies using bulgur wheat

Gemista with bulgur instead of rice and meat. Vegetarian/Vegan/Gluten-free for those Meatless Mondays until I reach my Taco Tuesdays to stuff my face with meat, cheese, Greek yogurt (tastes just like sour cream), tomato, lettuce. But, I digress. Try this flavourful dish and let me know what you think.
