Warm butternut squash with chick peas and tahini dressing. Yum yum yum. I stumbled upon this recipe online. The blogger built this "salad" up to be the best thing ever. The flavors combine to tease the taste buds...each flavor complimenting and enhancing the next. In fact, she claims that these ingredients should not EXIST without the other.
After trying the recipe as written...I completely agree! It really is lovely. I am so sad there are no leftovers for my lunch tomorrow. :( I will definitely make this again, maybe tomorrow! :)
And I made my own tahini...in my power blender. Just 2 cups of lightly toasted sesame seeds with 2-3 tbs of olive oil. I feel so domestic.
This picture was just from the Internet, too bad I forgot to take a picture. Mine was much prettier! Really! My family all liked it...even Jaren, but no one liked it as much as I did. Of course, I had all day to think about it, dream about it, plan it, prepare it. After hearing the rave reviews, I thought for sure my family would come to the table oohing and aaahing. They did not. But I did ;)
