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.
Recipe for the tahini veggies
- 1 cup/ 180 g of uncooked basmati rice
- 3 cups/ 200 g broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 carrot, cut into slices or flowers
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 tablespoon ginger, chopped
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- cilantro or parsley
- fried shallots and black sesame seeds for garnishing
How to make the tahini veggies
Cook rice according to instructions .
Steam broccoli and carrots for 5 minutes.
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.
