  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Swirl in 1 tablespoon oil. Add rice, scallion whites and light greens, and garlic; season. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is warmed through and has a nutty aroma, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Whisk together tahini, lime zest and juice, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, and 3 to 4 tablespoons water to reach desired consistency; season. Serve roasted vegetables over rice mixture, drizzle with tahini dressing, and top with pomegranate arils, reserved scallion tops, and sesame seeds.
