Toast 1 cup bulgur in a dry skillet until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Pour 2 1/2 cups boiling water over the bulgur in a heat-resistant bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let stand for 15 minutes, then toss with a little olive oil, some chopped dried apricots and olives, and salt and pepper to taste.
