Sesame Mustard Glazed Vegetables

I LOVE eating vegetables. Plants have so many beautiful colors and it's really fun to see how many I can put on my plate.

We all know that it's good to eat the rainbow. It's also good to make sure we're switching up the foods that we eat. Even if you eat a variety of foods throughout the week, if you're eating the same variety week after week, you're doing a disservice to your body.

As someone with gut issues, I want to do everything I can to help my body feel its best. For me, this means trying to switch up the foods I eat.

Sesame Mustard Glazed Vegetables

A good rule of thumb is to add one new/different food each week. Just grab something from the store that you didn't eat last week.

For me, I eat carrots and radishes on the regular. But I don't eat turnips that often. So turnips were the perfect food to add to this recipe to help give me some variety.

If there's a veggie that you don't typically eat, grab some from the store and add it to this dish. The more color variety the better!

Sesame Mustard Glazed Vegetables

Ingredients

Vegetables: I used carrots, turnips, and radishes. I liked this combo because of the variety of colors, shapes, and textures. You can experiment with your favorite veggies.

Glaze: To make the super-simple glaze, you'll need Dijon mustard, tahini, and molasses. These three ingredients make a super creamy glaze that has tons of flavor and a bit of a tang. It's perfect to enhance the flavor of the vegetables without overwhelming them.

Sesame Seeds: I sprinkled sesame seeds on top of the veggies at the end. I love how they add just a bit of texture.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
