Roasted Broccoli Barley Bowls have a flavor-packed tahini dressing. This buddha bowl has barley, broccoli + toasted walnuts for an amazing grain bowl combo.
Cook barley or other grain of choice according to package instructions. Add a pinch of salt to the cooking water. Barley takes roughly 45 minutes to cook to a tender chewiness.
While the barley is cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Toast the walnuts on a baking sheet - approximately 5 min @ 400F. Set aside.
Trim, wash and dry broccoli pieces. Toss with 1 Tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast @ 400F for 15-20 minutes, tossing halfway through.
Place all sauce ingredients, except water, in a blender and mix until emulsified. Add water 1 Tbsp at a time, to thin sauce.
The dressing will be fairly potent by itself, but is perfect when added to the broccoli bowls.
When the barley is done, build your bowls, toss with dressing and enjoy!
