roasted broccoli with hippie sauce
Hip hip hooray!!! We finally finished our second greenhouse this week.
Feels good to check this off the list. It’s amazing how quickly our schedules have gone from lazy winter mode to full blown farm mode. We are constantly covered in dirt and dreaming of the greenhouse temperature. We also have a few new members of the family (yep, we got chickens!) I will introduce you all to them in a different post.
Times like this call for quick, easy, and tasty food.
A few weeks ago I made “hippie bowls with hippie sauce” I have gotten so many emails from readers who made the sauce and absolutely loved it. Ever since then I have been whipping up huge batches so that we always have it on hand to drizzle over anything. Honestly, it tastes so stinking good that I have been caught eating it with a spoon. It’s almost as addicting as peanut butter out of the jar!
We made roasted broccoli with hippie sauce as a side dish to lentils and quinoa. It was absolutely delicious and really hit the spot. If you need a go-to side dish to bring over to friends house for dinner this should be it! Dig in!
Roasted Broccoli with Hippie Sauce
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Serves: 2-4
- 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 TBS oil (we used coconut oil but feel free to use oil of choice)
- 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 TBS white wine vinegar
- 2 tsp dijon style mustard
- 2 tsp honey
- 2 tsp sriracha hot sauce (or a pinch of cayenne pepper)
- 3 TBS nutritional yeast
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Drizzle broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a prepared baking sheet and roast in the oven until lightly browned and crisp. About 20-25 minutes. Toss broccoli halfway through cooking.
- Make the hippie sauce by whisking all the ingredients together until smooth. This works best with an emersion blender or food processor.
- Once broccoli is done roasting sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with hippie sauce.
