I was so hesitant to post this recipe, because it’s so simple and easy, but it is one of my absolute favorite meals, and it’s so good for you that I couldn’t resist! The veggies in this recipe provide loads of vitamins and minerals and provide so many different health benefits. The tahini provides a nice healthy fat, and a bit of protein to make it suitable to serve as a meal. The tahini also provides a lot of different health benefits, some of which are as follows:
- Rich in minerals such as phosphorus, lecithin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron.
- Good source of Methionine, which helps with liver detoxification.
- High in Vitamins E, B1, B2, B3, B5, and B15.
- Helps promote healthy cell growth.
- It has 20% complete protein, making it an even higher protein source than more traditional nut butters.
- Easy for your body to digest and absorb due to its high content of alkaline minerals.
- It’s high in good fats (unsaturated fats).
Okay, so as I said, this specific mixture of veggies with the tahini is literally one of my very favorite meals. It is SO yummy, and as I mentioned, it’s ridiculously simple to make, so it’s pretty much perfection all around!
PRESSURE COOKER TAHINI VEGGIES
Ingredients (makes 1 very large serving or 2 smaller servings)
- 1/3 yellow onion, chopped
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1/4 inch chunk of ginger, thinly sliced
- 1 medium carrot, chopped into bite size slices
- 1/4 head of red cabbage, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups bone broth (chicken or beef – I use kettle and fire beef bone broth for this recipe unless I have some homemade bone broth available)
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt (I use Hawaiian bamboo jade sea salt)
- 2-3 Tbsp. tahini (be generous with the tahini – I sometimes even use up to 4 Tbsp.)
1.) Prepare all of your veggies, and place them in the bed of an electric pressure cooker. Pour the bone broth over top the vegetables. Set the pressure cooker to steam the veggies for 3 minutes, then let it do its thing.
2.) Once the veggies are done pressure cooking, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a plate. Pro-tip: Pour the remaining bone broth into a cup, let it cool a bit, and then drink it – so many good minerals in there…plus, it’s delicious!
3.) Sprinkle the vegetables with the sea salt, and drizzle with the tahini.
See? So easy, that it’s almost embarrassing! But seriously, you will not be disappointed with this meal! Enjoy! 🙂
