Instructions:

Meze Bulgur Bowl
  1. Place tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and bell pepper in a half-sheet pan. Drizzle it with olive oil and season it with salt and pepper. Roast in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until veggies are tender and tomatoes are blistered. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bulgur by mixing it with vegetable broth in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a boil, turn down the heat to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff it with a fork.
  3. To assemble, place cooked bulgur in a bowl. Top it off with roasted eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, and tomatoes.
  4. Finish it off with a dollop of hummus, a sprinkle of fresh parsley, and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve!
