Planning ahead is key when it comes to healthy eating and this dish is a perfect example of a filling and hearty dish that's easy to make and is full of veggies. This is a warming dish that your whole family will love. It is super easy to put together when you need the inspiration for what to make for dinner and what to do with the leftover vegetables in the fridge. 

This veggie tahini tray bake is an awesome vegan recipe to get your veggies, protein, and healthy fats in the same delicious lunch or dinner meal. The tahini dressing gives the dish a savory and creamy flavor. This is a great recipe for those who are new to a plant-based diet or anyone who wants to try new recipes with fresh ingredients.

Keep in mind that there are two main types of tahinis: a thick, paste-like version and a thinner version similar to nut butter. The thinner version is ideal for dressings and sauces, while the thicker version is used in dips. You can make tahini at home, but it requires a lot of time and effort. The best option is to buy it in the store, but make sure it only includes a single ingredient — sesame seeds.
