Zaatar Chicken (or Tofu) with Green Tahini Sauce and Broccolini – a simple flavorful Middle Eastern sheet-pan dinner that is vegan adaptable and gluten-free.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers
within yourself that you have built against it. ~ Rumi~
Here is vegan-adaptable, sheet-pan dinner that is full of delicious Middle Eastern flavors. Make this with chicken or tofu (or both for mixed households!) and a double portion of broccolini.
What I love about this meal, besides how easy it is – is how it is loaded up with one of my favorite veggies, broccolini, which pairs well with Middle Eastern flavors.
Use store-bought Zaatar, or homemade Zaatar – and I’ll also show you how to make a quick cheater version, with spices you most likely have on hand. While this is roasting, make the Spring Green Tahini Sauce – a creamy vegan sauce that brings it all together.
As you can see on the sheet-pan, I served up both tofu and chicken. I kept mine vegan with the tofu, while my husband had a double serving of the chicken. One meal, two ways.
The zaatar spice gives both the tofu and chicken such a flavorful crust.
A simple, healthy, veggie forward dinner that can be easily adapted for different dietary needs.
Plus, it tastes delicious! Hope you enjoy!
