There are many winter squash options available at the markets now. Squash is harvested in the fall and if stored in a cool dry spot, they’ll last for awhile. When purchasing squash make sure they’re firm and free of bruises. Delicata squash is oblong in shape, has pale yellow skin with a green stripe and delicate yellow flesh. There’s no need to peel the squash before you chop it, because once the squash is cooked you can eat the skin. Tahini (sesame seed paste) is blended with fresh lemon juice and olive oil to make the dipping sauce which really elevates this dish. With a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to finish, you have a delicious dish.
