Occasionally my husband spends a few nights away, sometimes for work, sometimes for fun. Although I am always glad to see him when he returns, there are a few little things that I love about having a night to myself. Well, it isn’t exactly a night to myself as I have the precious little beings, but it is a night that differs from the norm.
I always make a vegetarian dinner. I typically let the kids pick what they would like. I know before they say a word that it will be porridge, they both think it is very exciting and a little mischievous having breakfast for dinner. For myself, I generally run with this recipe. I have been making this meal for many years. Well before my husband and children came along. I still love it. It is my go to dinner, a simple dish that I always enjoy.
My Go To Vego Dinner
Roast or steamed vegetables of your choice (I typically use an assortment of sweet potatoes, pumpkin, orange and purple carrot, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and beans).
1 generous tablespoon hulled tahini
1 generous teaspoon honey
Juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper
Combine the tahini and honey and pour this over the hot vegetables, drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
