Directions

1

To make the roasted vegetables, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 

2

Toss the vegetables in ghee so they are covered all over. Add a good pinch of salt if your za'atar does not already include it. Then lay the vegetables in a single layer on a sheet pan (or two, if needed). Roast for about 20 minutes, then flip them over with a spatula. Continue roasting until they are browned. 

Tip: They roast best when they are not touching and slightly apart. Make sure the brussel sprouts are cut side down.

3

Right as they come out of the oven, sprinkle them all over with za'atar spice.

Tip: We like to add the za'atar after roasting to prevent the sesame seeds in the za'atar from burning.

4

To make the tahini sauce, use a form or whisk to mix the lemon juice and tahini together. Add water 1 tbsp at a time while mixing, until the tahini has a consistency of coconut milk or cream. Whisk in the olive oil and season to taste, if desired.

5

Drizzle the olive oil & tahini over the vegetables and enjoy!
