Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

  2. Prepare Vegetables and Chickpeas:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced eggplant, zucchini, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and cherry tomatoes.

  4. Roast in the Oven:

    • Spread the vegetable and chickpea mixture onto a large baking sheet in a single layer.

    • Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and golden brown. Stir halfway through the roasting time for even cooking.

  5. Prepare Tahini Sauce:

    • In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.

    • If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it with a little water until it reaches your desired consistency.
