Easy mixed vegetables with sesame tahini sauce

Sesame Sauce For Mixed Vegetables

This easy sauce turns simple mixed vegetables into something special. Start by sauteing mixed vegetables in a small amount of olive oil. If you are really in a hurry, you can microwave the vegetables in a a covered dish. If you like hot and spicy food use the chipotle chile variation instead of the smoked paprika.
