Roasted Broccoli + Tahini Sauce + Brown Rice + Toasted Sesame Seeds = Delicious
Two recipes, one post, and one insanely good plate of food! The broccoli is delicious as a side dish and enough for four people or as a part of this meal for two. The tahini sauce is also fabulous over other roasted vegetables like cauliflower or brussels. Although the assembly is straightforward, I have included it below, followed by the two recipes.
Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Sauce
Start your roasted broccoli and once it is in the oven, make your tahini sauce. Serve broccoli with brown rice drizzled with tahini sauce and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds! There will be extra tahini sauce left over.
My favorite brown rice is the Trader Joes frozen precooked brown rice that is ready in 3 minutes in the microwave.
- 12 ounces (or two heads) broccoli florets
- 1/2 red onion, sliced
- 1 1/2 T extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/8 t ground pepper
- 1 pinch garlic powder
Just look at those gorgeous greens!
