Za'atar Roasted Sweet Potatoes With Tahini Ranch Dressing

Za'atar Roasted Sweet Potatoes With Tahini Ranch Dressing

Roasted potatoes pair perfectly with robust herbs. These za'atar roasted sweet potato fries get dusted with polenta, making them extra crispy. We recommend dipping in a vegan tahini ranch dipping sauce - it's life-changing!


INGREDIENTS
For the sweet potatoes:
3 large sweet potatoes (sliced into wedges)
3 tbsp za’atar
2 tbsp polenta
4 tbsp olive oil
Rosemary (finely chopped) and a few stalks for garnish
Salt & pepper
 
For the tahini ranch dip:
1/4 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini (any of our flavors would be delicious here!)
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 c olive oil
2 tbs white miso
2 tsp maple syrup
1 garlic (preferably roasted in advance)
Salt & pepper
Add 2/3 tbs water if necessary to thin out the sauce


STEPS
1.Pre-heat oven to 400 °F.
2. In a bowl, combine the za’atar, olive oil, salt & pepper, and sweet potatoes and mix by hand to coat evenly. Sprinkle the polenta over the sweet potatoes. Lay wedges on parchment-lined baking sheet (evenly spaced) and roast for 45 mins or until golden and crispy.
3. For the dressing: blend all of the dressing ingredients (except the water) in a food processor until smooth. Add extra water to thin out the sauce to your preference. The more water, the thinner the sauce will be.
4. Add the rosemary over the fries for decoration.

Lasts for up to 2 days if kept in an airtight container.

Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie

 As far as cozy winter food goes, it's hard to beat a Shepherd's Pie. It's hearty and warming, perfect for the days when the sun sets at 5 and it's too cold to leave the house. As much as we enjoy the traditional version, we also love a plant based option, using lentils in place of ground meat. The tahini is a great substitute here for butter in the mashed potato topping, and adds a rich, creaminess to the filling. Our founder, Rachel's husband and kids enjoyed this dish for dinner the day we shot this picture and gave it a big unanimous thumbs up!

Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta
Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta

"I usually toss cooked vegetables into my dinner pastas for added fiber and nutrition. This recipe--which calls for an entire head of cooked broccoli--takes that effort to a whole new level. Half of the broccoli gets chopped and added to the pasta, while the remaining half is pureed into a bright green, tahini-based pesto. The creamy texture of this pesto gives more body to the finished recipe than an oil-based pesto would. Untraditional as it is, it has become by favorite pesto for using in pasta dishes."
