Nuts and seeds are a good source of protein and healthful fats. This meatless main dish incorporates sesame seeds in two forms: tahini (sesame seed paste) in the sauce and toasted seeds as a garnish.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare sauce, combine tahini and next 9 ingredients (through garlic) in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.

Step 2

To prepare noodles, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water 5 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add broccoli to pan, and cook 1 minute. Add carrots to pan; cook 1 minute. Drain; place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with onions and remaining ingredients. Drizzle with sauce; toss well. Serve immediately.
