Roasted Veg & Grain Salad with Hummus

This roasted veg and grain salad, is the type of salad you can serve right away or keep in the fridge for a week of lunches. It’s got roasted vegetables, Bulgar Wheat, chickpeas and dollops of hummus. I used this Bulgar Wheat, which is already seasoned, making it easier for you. You can make your own hummus, or buy. If you’re making your own, I’ve included my go-to easy 5-minute recipe. I added pomegranates purely because they were in season. If you can get them, add them – they add a nice crunch. If not, it works just as well without.
