Green Tahini Sauce+ Big Green Veggie Bowl

When I was in college I had a roommate from Israel who was a really great cook. She taught me how to make authentic hummus and always topped it with a simple tahini-parsley sauce. The addition of the parsley to her sauce added a subtle flavor and not-so-subtle color. Thinking about her sauce while experimenting in the kitchen, I’ve created my own Green Tahini Sauce and what better dish to put it on then a Big Green Veggie Bowl.
