Roasted Butternut Squash with Tahini and Za’atar
Milk Street Facebook Community member Jason Lewis, of Philadelphia, roasts butternut squash and red onion, then finishes them with a tahini-lemon-garlic sauce and a dusting of za’atar, the Middle Eastern herb, spice and seed blend. Before roasting, we toss the squash and onion with olive oil and honey to encourage browning. After sprinkling on the za’atar, we scatter on chopped parsley or basil chiffonade for color and fresh, herbal notes.
01Heat the oven to 475°F with a rack in the lower-middle position. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons oil, the honey and ½ teaspoon salt. Add the squash and onion, then use your hands to rub the mixture over the vegetables until well coated. Distribute in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Using a wide metal spatula, flip the vegetables, then roast until nicely browned and a skewer inserted into the squash meets no resistance, 12 to 15 minutes.
