Bulgur, a whole grain made from cracked wheat, can be softened with water boiled in an electric tea kettle, so it doesn’t require any cooking on a stove. If you don’t have an electric tea kettle, use one on the stove, but set a timer as a reminder to turn it off. The tomatoes can be sliced using a serrated butter knife that is not too sharp, or a caregiver can slice them in advance.
