Zaatar roasted squash
I'm a big fan of these flavors from the Middle East. This is a filling and delicious recipe for squash.
1 butternut squash
1 yellow onion
2 tbsp tahini
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Sriracha
Peel the butternut squash with a veggie peeler. Remove seeds and dice into 1-inch pieces. Peel onion and cut into eights. Separate leaves.
Toss veggies with 2 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake in a 400F preheated oven for an hour, turning every 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix tahini with lemon juice, Sriracha, pinch of salt and enough water to create a creamy dressing. Sprinkle onto squash and onion.
Sprinkle za'atar liberally onto prepared product. The sumac will provide a fruity, lemony flavor.
