I seriously believe that tahini and pomegranate seeds elevate every dish, and they’re the perfect topping on roasted butternut squash. This dish is not only gorgeous but it happens to be packed with flavour and nutrients. If you’re looking for a gluten-free and dairy-free side dish, this is one of my favourites because it’s so easy, and it happens to complement every season so well. Whether you’re hosting a summer bbq, or a cozy holiday winter meal, this dish is truly foolproof.
