A delicious side perfect for the winter holidays!
Serves: 4, Prep Time: 10 minutes, Total Time: 40 minutes.
1 delicata squash (small)
3 cups brussels sprouts (washed and halved)
1 bulb fennel (coarsely chopped)
½ cup red onion (coarsely chopped)
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (divided)
¼ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ cup tahini
1 garlic (clove)
¼ cup water
2 lemons (small, juiced)
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Slice delicata squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds, then slice into half rounds.
Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, fennel and red onion with half of the olive oil. Spread over the baking sheets. Roast vegetables in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring at the halfway point.
Meanwhile, prepare the dressing by combining the remaining olive oil, salt, pepper, tahini, garlic, water, and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until smooth, adding more water if necessary for consistency.
Remove vegetables from the oven and divide onto plates. Drizzle with tahini sauce and top with pumpkin seeds. Season with more sea salt and black pepper if you wish. Enjoy!
