Turmeric Tahini Sauce with Broccolini

Turmeric Tahini Sauce01

Did you know that steaming vegetables is also considered “raw”? Raw Foods is the most nutritious way of eating. Cooking below 120′ or dehydrating food (which is equal to sun drying) it’s also a way of raw. Through theses methods we do not altered the enzymes. We eat food just like Nature intended us to do so.
I take pleasure in cooking. In fact, it’s my art. But I have to find a balance between raw and cooked foods. I try to include something green and something raw in every single meal. And at least prepare and eat 3 completely raw meals per week.

Here’s an idea. This Broccolini side dish is an awesome alternative to french fries! Yes, french fries. The ones that you can not stop eating because how good they taste? Well, same thing happens with Steamed Broccolini.
And I’m not the only one that vouches for it. Ask my daughter! (if she could talk) 10 months old and loving to chew and eat Broccoli. Watta great start!
