Two of my favorite ingredients are combined together in this flavorful Parmesan-Mustard Sauce.



I think that both dijon mustard and Parmesan cheese are the perfect complement to almost any vegetable. So, one night when I wanted to jazz up my Roasted Root Vegetables a bit, I created this sauce. A delicious combination of thickened vegetable broth, Parmesan cheese, two types of mustard and sesame seeds, this sauce is nutty, mustard-y and full of flavor – yet doesn’t overpower the roasted veggies. And, I discovered it’s equally as delicious on crab cakes!
