Gyan's steamed vegetables with brown rice and tahini dressing

This is an ideal meal which is delicious and easily digested and doesn't take too much preparation.

Ingredients
short grain brown rice
some sea salt
2 or 3 different types of fresh vegetables e.g. carrots, broccoli, asparagus, leek, cauliflower, green beans
short grain brown rice
pre-prepared tahini dressing OR
dark tahini paste
juice of half a lime
a little olive oil
a teaspoon of honey
a dash of tamari sauce
1 clove of garlic crushed
some filtered water
nori flakes (optional)

Method
First of all wash the rice and put it on to boil with a little sea salt, it generally takes about 40 mins. Go and do something else for a while.
About 10-15 minutes before the rice is ready, chop the vegetables and put them in the steamer. Steam until they are lightly cooked.
While the steaming is going on, prepare the sauce. Take about 2 tablespoons of tahini paste, add about 3 or 4 teapoons of olive oil, the lime juice, honey, crushed garlic and a little tamari sauce. Mix together. Then slowly add the filtered water, add a bit then stir, repeating this until you have the desired thickness. I like it slightly more runny than cheese sauce. Add more tamari or sea salt to taste.
Strain the rice and serve in a bowl. Add a generous portion of steamed vegetables and top with the delicious tahini dressing. Sprinkle with nori flakes if desired.
