a small spoonful of Tahini
a drizzle of olive oil
a small spoonful of apple cider vinegar
Salt to taste
Water (optional) to create desired consistency
First, heat about 2 inches of water in a large sauté pan on medium heat.
Then chop up your broccoli into bite sized pieces and add it to the pan. Sauté until tender.
Next make your dressing. Add all ingredients to a small food processor or blender and combine until you meet your desired consistency. Be sure to taste as you go, adding additional amounts of the ingredients as needed based on your preferences.
Plate your broccoli, then drizzle your dressing all over the veggies, and top it all off with the toasted pine nuts.
Serve and enjoy!
