Another Meatless Monday: Green Diva Goddess Roasted Veggies

1 22

Green Diva Meg's Roasted Veggies, Chickpeas and Goddess Sauce

All my days are meatless now, but I thought I’d jump on the Meatless Monday thing since it is a really great idea. My husband is still a reluctant vegan, so I’m always in search of good transitional meals that satisfy his belly and taste buds. Yesterday, while perusing Pinterest (endless eye candy), I came across a great recipe for this Buddha Bowl, which I decided to adjust to meet my own taste, including my very own Green Diva Goddess Tahini Sauce.

And normally, I really don’t like chickpeas, but roasting them seemed like a novel idea, so I rambled with it.


1 head broccoli – chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 head cauliflower  – chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 can chickpeas (or equivalent in freshly cooked) – drained
1 clove garlic – crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt & pepper – to taste (I added a little maple pepper – yum)

Tahini Sauce

4 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic – crushed (optional, but not in my opinion)
2 tablespoons favorite herbs (I used fresh parsley, cilantro & chives)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon tamari
1 – 2 teaspoons light miso paste
water as needed


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. Wash, chop, drain and pat dry broccoli and cauliflower

3. Drain chickpeas and pat dry

4. Toss the broccoli and cauliflower in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil adding 1/2 of the crushed garlic and salt and pepper to taste – try to get everything coated evenly.

5. Spread out in a 9 x 11 glass baking dish or onto an edged cookie sheet.

6. Repeat 4 & 5 with the chickpeas and put them in their own baking dish.

7. Put everything in the oven for 15 minutes, and then mix up the chickpeas a bit and put them all back for another 10 – 15 minutes.

8. While everything is in the oven, make your Green Diva Goddess Tahini Sauce . . .

    That actually sounds pretty good, especially the Green Divas Tahini Sauce.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
