Roast Vegetables with Tahini Dressing

Roast Vegetables with Tahini Dressing

Ready in 1 hour

Ingredients:

3/4 cup wild or mixed brown rice

6 cups peeled and cubed root vegetables (I used carrots, kabocha pumpkin, beets. Broccoli also tastes great)

Olive oil

Sea salt and black pepper

2 spring onions or green onions, minced

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley and chives (or other favorite herbs)

Toasted almonds or sunflower seeds (optional)

To make Lemon-Tahini Dressing, combine:

1/4 cup Tahini (essentially a sesame paste; also used to make hummus)

1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice

3 tablespoons water

3-4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

1 teaspoon soy sauce

*Add more lemon juice or salt if needed.

Cook rice according to instructions. After cooking, move rice into a bowl and let cool.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss the vegetables with olive oil, salt and freshly ground pepper.

Spread the vegetables in an even layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked through. Stir once or twice while baking to keep vegetables from burning. Remove from heat and let cool.

This dish is best served at room temperature. When you're ready to serve, arrange rice in a bowl, top with plenty of vegetables, drizzle with a generous amount of dressing on top, and add a few spoons of the green onion/herb mixture. Finally sprinkle with almonds! Stir and feast. :)

Make ahead: If you plan on making enough for leftovers or for the lunch the next day (which I always do), just keep all the elements separate (rice, vegetables, and dressing). Otherwise, the tahini dries out the dish.

Serves 4-6.
