One of my favorite and go-to dinners to make is roasted veggies over rice or quinoa. It’s so easy to make and filling! It’s hard for me to get bored with it because I often enjoy trying out different variations. In this particular meal, I decided to go with carrots, broccoli, and red onions.
Some of my other favorites include using potatoes (sweet or white). I’m pretty much down for potato anything. Also, if I have peppers leftover from meals earlier in the week, I like to add those in too. Roasted veggie dinners are a great way to clean out the fridge!
If you’re like me, you keep a rotation going of your favorite veggies. Though it’s hard, every now and then I get a little antsy and wanna jazz things up a bit. That’s where this garlic tahini sauce comes in. It’s so simple to make and comes together in just a few short minutes. To add icing to the cake, you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen!
Tahini sauce is great because you can add it to a variety of things. Burgers, salads, veggie bowls… the list goes on. I won’t lie, I haven’t always been a fan of tahini. Have you ever tried it by itself? Wuck! It’s got a pretty distinct taste that NEEDS some spices and such to give it LIFE!
This garlic tahini sauce also came in handy for my first try making falafels. I ate these almost daily while in Greece and I’d love to make them a staple in my home. The falafels still need some work, but the tahini sauce definitely added to them!
