Broccoli, Peas and Almonds

Nothing like clean eating! 

Broccoli, Peas and Almonds With Tahini Lemon Dressing

My veggies of the moment: broccoli and cauliflower. I'm crazy about them! There are too many ways to prepare these pretty veggies and sometimes, eating raw is the way to go.

Broccoli, Peas and Almonds

3 heads of broccoli (you can replace or add cauliflower)
half a bag of frozen peas
red and yellow cherry tomatoes 
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup dried cranberries

Nothing to it. Throw it in a bowl and mix it up. 

Tahini Lemon Dressing 

2 T tahini
1 T flax seeds or chia seeds, or both
1/2 cup warm water, or less depending on how thick you want the dressing
salt, to taste
2 T nutritional yeast
1 T dill weed

It's easier to mix the tahini and water together first so the tahini melts a little. Then add everything else and mix. Pour over the broccoli salad and there you have it! 

How pretty are these veggies?!
