Tahini Roasted Broccoli
Those little, browned bits of roasted broccoli do a great job at soaking in sauce. Seed + Mill co-founder, Monica Molenaar came up with this one - it’s so easy and delicious! Plus, any leftovers can - and should - be used in a fresh salad or grain bowl. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself eating it straight from the fridge.
You can use different spices to suit your preference. Monica’s Asian inspired choices make up what you see here.
1 head broccoli, cut into crowns
2 tbs olive oil
1-2 tbs Seed + Mill Organic Tahini (any of our flavors would be delicious here!)
Seasonings to taste. We used:
Red pepper flakes
Trader Joe’s Umami mushroom powder (Monica’s favorite!)
Soy sauce or coconut aminos
Chopped scallions and sesame seeds for garnish
1. Preheat the oven to 425 °F and turn on convection if you have.
2. Lay broccoli crowns cut-side-down out on a parchment paper-lined baking tray.
Drizzle with the tahini, olive oil, and coat with seasonings.
4. Roast, checking periodically for those lovely, crisp and dark brown edges, about 20 minutes.
5. Finish with a sprinkle of soy sauce, sesame seeds, and scallions.

This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!
"These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."
We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!
We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
