I’m so glad you guys liked the herbed slow cooker chicken from last week! I’m making another batch this week.  Ditto that kombucha tahini dressing! Another dressing I’m totally digging lately? This anti-inflammatory recipe I shared with mindbodygreen last week! I seriously want to eat it on everything.

Today I wanted to share some more miso love with this old favorite dish: Beans & Greens with Miso-Tahini Sauce. I always seem to crave high-fiber foods like beans after a few days of travel, and this is one of my favorite ways to get my fix. Chickpeas and  butter beans are my personal favorites, but feel free to use whatever you like best.

This recipe makes enough to enjoy for a few meals—perfect easy meal prep option! I hope you love it as much as I do!
