  Cracked wheat 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Bulgur)
  Boiling water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Olive oil/Salad oil 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced or pressed

In a bowl, mix together bulgur and boiling water; set aside until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 1 hour; drain.
Place a wok or 10-inch frying pan over high heat.
Add 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, and turkey; stir-fry until lightly browned, crumbling meat with spoon, about 5 minutes.
Scoop out turkey and set aside.
To pan, add carrots, zucchini, ginger, and 1/3 cup water; stir to free browned bits.
Cover and cook vegetables until they are tender to bite, about 5 minutes; stir often.
Boil, uncovered, until nearly all the liquid evaporates.
Add turkey and sauce; stir until boiling.
Spoon bulgur onto plates; top equally with turkey and sprinkle with green onions.
