Ingredients

  • 1 large delicata squash
  • 2 large zucchini

For the Green Tahini

  • 5 oz tahini
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 TBSP coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar

Directions

Roasting the Squash

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2

Cut the each squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds from the Delicata squash.

3

Place the squash on a baking sheet. Once the oven is preheated, cook the squash for 20-30 minutes, or until squash is tender and easily poked into with a fork.

Preparing the Green Tahini Dressing

4

While the squash cooks, prepare the Green Tahini by combining all the ingredients in a small food processor or blender and blending on high until smooth and creamy. If you do not have a small enough food processor or blender, you can double the tahini recipe to make it easier to blend. The Green Tahini makes a delicious salad dressing too, and you can store it in the fridge in a sealed container for a week.

5

Once the squash is done, drizzle with the green tahini and serve.
