Procedure

To cook the potatoes and broccoli:  Wash the potatoes.  Place in a microwave-safe container along with the broccoli.  Place in the microwave and start on "Potato" setting.  Most times, I choose "2 potatoes" as my serving size.  If you don't have this setting, microwave for 2-3 minutes, checking every 20 seconds after the first 1 1/2 minutes.

To make the Lemon Tahini dressing:  While the potatoes and broccoli cook, combine all of the dressing ingredients in a jar. Screw the lid on the jar and shake vigorously to combine.  Taste to adjust seasoning.  

To make the Bowl:  When the potatoes and broccoli are done, toss with a couple tablespoons of the dressing.  Dive in.  Dinner is done.

Chef's Tips:  You'll have extra dressing from this recipe.  It is good for up to 10 days.  Use it on salads, grilled veggies, or for other dinner emergencies.
