Curry Tahini Sauce

  • Transfer first three ingredients to blender or food processor and blend for one minute to combine. Add oil, then water in a slow and steady stream.

  • Transfer to a container and refrigerate.

Bread Crumbs and Croutons

  • Save ⅓ of country loaf or boule and wrap in plastic for Monday’s dinner. It should be enough to yield two large slices of toast.
  • Cut remainder of bread into 1” cubes. In a medium bowl, toss with olive oil. Spread out evenly on Brava metal tray. Slide metal tray into bottom oven shelf
  • Select Bake on your Brava touchscreen and set to 350F. Once preheat is done, bake croutons for 10 minutes, or until light brown and toasted. 
  • Finely chop one cup of croutons for bread crumbs later in the week. Save both croutons and breadcrumbs in an airtight container for later in the week.

Spiced Chickpeas

  • Drain chickpeas in colander. Transfer to a plate lined with several paper towels to absorb excess moisture. 
  • In a medium bowl, toss chickpeas with remaining ingredients. Spread out seasoned chickpeas evenly on Brava metal tray. Insert metal tray onto top oven shelf.
  • Select Sear → Top and Bottom Sear on your oven touchscreen. Set timer for 12 minutes and cook.
