Method

1. Place the vegetables in a baking tray, add a drizzle of oil, and then sprinkle over the sumac & cumin, season with the garlic salt, and then lastly add the orange juice and agave. Bake for 20 minutes or so at 180 degrees Celsius until jammy and golden.
2. Cook the bulgar wheat according to the instructions on the packet (i usually just add boiling water to 1 1/2 cups dry bulgar wheat with some salt & it cooks by itself)
3. Mix the salad dressing and add more liquid if needed, once the vegetables are cooked, add on to the cooked bulgar wheat and then drizzle with the dressing, crushed pistachios & edible flowers. Add some sliced blood orange or orange of choice before serving.
