  • 3 cups diced butternut squash
  • 2 cups trimmed and halved brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp melted coconut or extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

    Great recipe, terrific flavors, and easy to prepare. To the user who got "mush" - when you roast, make sure there is a lot of room between your veggies otherwise you just end up steaming them. Go for two pans to give each chunk some room.

    The sauce on these veggies is amazing. I think this might be my favorite dish from the whole 2013 detox.

    Although delicious in flavor, I found it to be a big wad of mush! (It don't have great luck with roasting squash.) I added lime juice to the dressing, and will use that on other things.

    I roasted a sliced red onion and whole garlic cloves along with the squash and the brussels sprouts. It was fabulous! I also accidentally added cayenne pepper to the tahini sauce instead of paprika (I took as much out as possible once I realized the mistake) and it was actually really good with a spicy kick!

    Oh my goodness, this recipe is a revelation for me! I'm tempted to eat the whole bowl! I will definitely be. Making this again.
    I have an electric oven and my vegetables were done at about 20 minutes.
    I am not sharing this dish with anyone! (;

    The cilantro vinegarette on this dish is delicious. I am tempted to drink it!
