Directions

Step 1 - Tabouli Salad procedure:
  1. Bring the water to a boil, add the bulgur wheat, cover and cook for 1 minute over low heat. After 5 minutes, the wheat will be plump and soft, no water left in the pan. Chill. Combine with the remainder of the ingredients for the tabouli. Chill overnight.
Step 2 - Hummus procedure:
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth. Chill for 4 hours or overnight.
Step 3 - Sandwich procedure:
  1. Combine the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper, and marinate the mushrooms in the mixture for at least 2 hours, turning at least once. Cook the mushroom caps gill side down in a very hot frying pan with the additional olive oil for about 2 minutes. Turn and baste the gills with the marinade, cooking an additional 2 minutes. Take a kaiser roll and spread the hummus on both halves. Place the mushroom on the roll at service, topped with a slice of cheese. Serve with tabouli on a leaf of lettuce and tomato.
