Tahini Roasted Butternut Squash

And, just like that. The seemingly-endless holidays were over. Did you have a happy new year? Are you ready for everything that 2016 has to bring? I know I’m probably not, but I’m ready to jump in anyway (not that I have a choice, since I can’t really control time with my mind). A lot happened last year, so I’m hoping that the new one will be a little bit calmer, but that’s it. I’m not making a resolution other than to try to be the best version of myself everyday. That’ll be easy, right? Did you make a resolution this year?

I know lots of you are ready to go on a healthy binge (maybe the word cleanse is more appropriate, but I don’t really like it), and I’m totally on board, too. I mean, I did order a bridesmaid dress for a wedding this June, so I don’t have much choice than to stay healthy. Does that count as a resolution? I don’t think it does.

Anyway, I’m in love with this tahini roasted butternut squash. It’s filling, delicious and it’s covered in a nutty, gingery tahini sauce – and topped with cilantro. But, the best part is that it’s really easy. While the oven is preheating, you whisk up a sauce and toss the squash in it. Then pop it into the oven for a bit so that the sauce bakes right on and creates an almost batter-like coating. Top with cilantro, and you’re done.
