Broccolini with Lemon Tahini Dressing

serves 2-4

  • 1 pound broccolini, washed & trimmed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt & fresh cracked pepper
  • lemon tahini dressing (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 425F.  Transfer broccolini to a baking sheet. Toss with a few glugs of olive oil. Season with salt & pepper and roast for 10-15 minutes, making sure to toss at the half way mark. Broccolini should be tender but still maintain a little crunch. Drizzle hot broccolini with lemon tahini dressing and serve immediately.

lemon tahini dressing

  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

In a food processor, pulse the garlic to mince it. Add the tahini, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, oil, water, salt and process until smooth. If dressing is too thick, thin out with a tablespoon or two of water or oil.
