Ingredients

*Steamed Veggies*

  • 1 small head broccoli
  • 1 small bell pepper , seeds removed

*Greek Yogurt Tahini Sauce*

  • 3 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 tablespoons plain fat-free Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (use water for a lower-fat version)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove , grated
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro or parsley leaves , diced (I used cilantro)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt , to taste
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes , to taste

Instructions

For the Steamed Veggies:

  • Chop the broccoli into small florets, and dice the bell pepper into thin strips.
  • Boil 1 inch of water in a small-medium pot that fits your steamer. Add the chopped vegetables and steam for about 5 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp tender and cooked to your liking. Remove from heat.

For the Greek Yogurt Tahini Sauce:

  • While the vegetables are steaming, whisk together the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. Taste it and see if the sauce needs more salt, pepper, or lemon juice.
  • Pour the sauce over the steamed veggies while they are still hot.

Notes

- If the tahini separates from the oil in the container, mix well to make a thin paste before mixing it with the rest of the sauce ingredients.
- This recipe makes twice as much sauce as steamed veggies. The leftover sauce will store well in the fridge for a few days, and you can use it as salad dressing or on your next batch of steamed veggies the next day!
- Feel free to make any mixed veggies you like, such as carrots, squash, cauliflower, etc.
