Tahini Lemon Rice and Beans
Its cold and rainy here today (and I think for the rest of the week) which has got me craving this recipe for Tahini Lemon Rice and Beans from the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook and website. This recipe has quickly made its way into our regular rotation of quick and easy meals since we almost always have the ingredients on hand. If we don’t have all the ingredients then we still make it with simple substitutions or just leave out that ingredient. We’ve made it with and without seitan, subbed red beans for black beans, made it carrot-less and so on.
What initially drew me to this recipe was that it reminded me of something I’d put together for lunch at this one restaurant I worked for. I miss those weird combinations of ingredients that were on hand on the “line” that I would throw together at the horror of the waitstaff thinking I was going to make them eat it for family meal one day. The lunches always included brown rice, veggies, protein and a mixture of sauces. They were alway’s perfect just like this dish pictured here. So please…make this for dinner this week and enjoy it because it’s delicious.
