Oven-roasted butternut squash and sliced red onion seasoned with za’atar, then finished with tahini and pine nuts, is the creation of Milk Street Facebook community member Judie Spero, of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. We added just a couple accent ingredients—yogurt for a touch of acidity and a drizzle of pomegranate molasses for tangy-sweet fruity notes that complement the other deep, earthy flavors.

Tip

Don’t stir the squash and onion mixture more than once during roasting. Infrequent stirring allows the vegetables to caramelize beautifully, which results in richer, more complex flavor.
