Green Beans With Tomato Pesto

I love green beans but I don’t like them the way my mom served them!! We pretty much ate them from a can, warmed up & then they got cold on the plate…and they were a bit mushy….. but I do like them roasted! Sautéed is ok but I prefer them roasted. A bit charred and delicious! This recipe from bon appetit, is unique & very tasty,

Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Sauce

When I was young, we never ate fresh broccoli. I remember eating canned corn & the frozen mixed vegetables! I started making broccoli for my own family, boiling was the way to go!

Cauliflower Steaks With Tahini and Pine Nuts – The Nosher

I follow The Nosher from the website My Jewish Learning. I find that most of their recipes really work out and are very tasty.

Cauliflower recipes are everywhere and I actually try many of them. This one has a roasted garlic tahini sauce which is different then my usual tahini sauce. The addition of the roasted garlic to the tahini sauce adds a hint of sweetness. If you are not a fan of so much garlic, just use less.  The pine nuts are toasted making them especially delicious. The cauliflower is cut into 1 inch thick steaks, brushed with oil on both sides then roasted until brown. Served up with the tahini sauce and the pine nuts…garnished with chopped parsley….this is a great side dish with just about anything. I like it as is alongside  a deep dark green kale salad!

I will definitely make it again.
