Like the title says, I’ve been reunited with tahini! I completely forgot how good this stuff is!!! Last week I used in on falafels and tonight I made a yummy yummy sauce with it. I feel a tahini obsession coming on…. kinda like how I go through phases of only having pumpkin oats for breaky or huge salads at lunch…. Does anyone else go through phases of always eating certain foods?
My dinner tonight was so simple but it rocked!!! My plate was a trifle of good veggies, quinoa, and maple tahini sauce. This is how it went down:
Layer 1: steamin’ hot quinoa
Layer 2: cooked spinach
Layer 3: roasted parsnips
Layer 4: steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and red cabbage
Layer 5: maple tahini sauce
Yes, this was amazing!! To make this beaut of a dish I roasted parsnips in the oven at 425° F for about 20 half an hour. While the parsnips were roasting, I steamed the broccoli, cauliflower, and red cabbage. I also cooked the quinoa at the same time. when everything was a few minutes from being done I added a mound of spinach to the pot with the steamed veggies and put the lid on so it would wilt. Then I made the maple tahini sauce 🙂
Maple Tahini Sauce
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp olive oil
drop of sesame oil
1/2-1 tbsp of maple syrup (depends on how sweet you want it)
Combine ingredients in a dish and microwave for approximately 20 seconds. Stir after every 6 or 7 seconds. If its hot enough/runny enough for you then don’t microwave for the full 20 seconds, nobody likes burnt tahini sauce 🙂
I also just wanted to share some cute pics of my doggy!!! My dad just gave her a hair cut and she looks so adorable ❤ Just look at her!
Alright, I’m off to the parents house! Have a great night everyone!!
