Oh my goodness this dish is AMAZING!  I was cleaning out my fridge before heading out to Miami and wiped up this super savory and nourishing bowl of vegetables with sweet tahini mustard sauce.  It totally hit the spot after a long day of running errands, packing and cleaning.  I was in pure heaven eating this and I know you’ll love it too!
