2 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)

Stir Fry:
4 stalks celery, sliced
1 bell pepper
4 small carrots, halved and sliced
1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
1/4 small onion, sliced

1/4 cup raw tahini
2 Tbsp nama shoyu
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced

sesame seeds for sprinkling


1) For the rice, combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until chopped up small like grains of rice (but do not over process or you will get mush).  Set aside.  
2) Combine the veggies in a large bowl.

3) Whisk together the sauce ingredients, then toss with the veggies.

4) Serve over the rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
