Tahini Dressed Veggies


It’s time for another vegetarian dish! I, usually eat a balanced meal, so even though many of my posts are of meat, chicken or fish, I do eat a lot of raw vegetables with it to balance it out.

They are tasty on their own right, but the chocolate drizzle adds another layer of flavor, which goes so well with all the ingredients.
Try them and decide for yourself.
