Ingredients

  • 2 heads of broccolli chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large clove of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped-sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • the juice from 1 lemon -- and the zest
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Cut the broccoli florets down into chunks, leaving the stems long. Add broccoli, olive oil, and 2 hefty pinches of salt to a tinfoil lined baking sheet and toss. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown and crispy on the bottom.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce. Add tahini, warm water, olive oil, garlic, mint, cilantro, dill, and the juice from 1 lemon to a bowl and whisk. Season with salt to taste. Set aside.
  • After the broccoli is done roasting, remove it from the oven. Smear half of the tahini sauce onto a plate and top it with the broccoli - creating a dome like shape. Spoon the rest of the tahini sauce on top and finish with fresh lemon zest before serving!
