Charred Broccoli with Lemon Tahini
I think side dishes need to get more love and attention. Rather than just plain roasted broccoli, spice it up with this flavorful lemon tahini dressing, toasted walnuts and sesame seeds!
1 head of broccoli, stems chopped
1/2 cup tahini (I love the whole foods brand!)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
handful of walnuts
White sesame seeds
Option to add pomegranates or cranberries for a pop of color
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Drizzle broccoli with olive oil and salt and roast for 20 minutes or until nicely browned. Add the walnuts to the baking sheet and roast alongside the broccoli
Mix lemon juice with the tahini
Place broccoli on a serving dish and spoon tahini evenly over the broccoli and walnuts. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and pomegranates and serve hot!
