Growing up vegetarian I was always really into the side dishes and salads over the main course. My parents were always pretty good about making sure there was a veggie option for me, but I can’t tell you how many times I went to dinner parties or events where I would have to skip the steak or chicken and just fend off the sides. So this is where my love of dishes like this broccoli + cauliflower + pomegranate with tahini come from!

What you’ll Need:

1 small head of purple cauliflower (if you can find it, if not just used 1 large head of white), chopped into florets
1 small head of white cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 large head of broccoli, chopped into florets
a couple tablespoons of olive oil
1 onion, sliced thin (preferably with a mandolin)
a pinch of parsley, chopped
a handful of chived or green onion, chopped
salt + pepper
a squeeze of lemon juice

for the tahini:
¼ cup of tahini
about ½ cup of water
3 tablespoons of brown rice vinegar
a dash of sesame oil
salt / pepper / red pepper flakes
