These tahini veggies are a quick meal I created by chance, when on a Sunday evening I just threw a couple of things I found in the fridge without great expectations. It was soooo good!

Some of you might know the sauce from my sesame noodles, and as a warm rice dish it works just as well. Now we’re having this at least once a week, and every time we are impressed how tasty this simple combination is.

I cook the rice in my multicooker*, and usually I make twice the amount, so we can have pineapple rice with vegan egg the next day.

Sauté onions, garlic and ginger at moderate heat in a pan. If you don’t have a steaming basket, you can also just put the broccoli and carrots into the pan and sauté them.

Stir soy sauce, tahini and maple syrup with 3 tablespoons water into a creamy sauce.

Add the veggies and the sauce to the pan, stir, and serve immediately with the rice. Garnish with cilantro or parsley and fried shallots and black sesame.
