Method: 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small pot, add bulgur and salt and return to a boil. Lower heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Press hot bulgur into a greased 9-inch pie pan and baked for 12 minutes, or until somewhat dry and crust-like. Set aside. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, broccoli and mushrooms and cook briefly. Cover skillet and turn off heat; set aside while you prepare tofu mixture. Blend tofu, tahini, umeboshi paste and tamari in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add cooked vegetables and toss gently to combine. Pour vegetable mixture into bulgur crust, then bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve hot or cold.
