Broccoli.It’s an amazing vegetable, and a great source of vitamins C and K, as well as folate, potassium, and fiber. However, it isn’t necessarily the most delicious food on the block, and can often be too bitter to eat even when we’re reminded of the health benefits.
You may have hated it as a kid, with all its crunchy bitterness, that translated to you as an adult today. Despite all your misgivings about broccoli, put them aside to try this recipe for roasted broccoli with tahini sauce. Let yourself be transported to the Eastern Mediterranean in a medley of flavors that will complement and make your broccoli taste divine!
Although tahini is a major component of sauces such as hummus and baba ghanoush, it is also just as amazing on its own to be used as a dip. Sesame seeds are toasted and hulled, then ground to make this delicious sauce chock full of nutty and toasty flavors that go great with sour lemon and tangy garlic.
You can control the level of flavors that you want in your sauce by playing with the proportions of your sauce ingredients, letting you have it your way. Don’t worry about it going well with the broccoli- the flavors go well no matter what because the broccoli is toasted!
