Spiced Butternut Squash

Our Togarashi spice is an easy way to add crunch and zing to any roasted vegetable dish. The citrus notes in the spice blend pair beautifully with sweet butternut squash. Add the roasted squash to a salad, grain bowl or just devour on its own hot out of the oven like we do, drizzled with tahini of course!
1 butternut squash, seeds removed and sliced into 1 inch rounds or moon shapes (we prefer skin on for extra fiber!)
2 tbsp olive oil 
1 1/2 tbsp Togarashi spice (or substitute with a blend of 1 tsp toasted sesame, 1 tsp orange zest, 1 tsp chili flakes, grind fresh pepper, 1/2 tsp flaky sea salt)
2 tbsp Seed + Mill Organic Tahini (any of our flavors would be delicious here!)
1. Preheat oven to 400 °F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl, coat squash slices in olive oil and toss with Togarashi, mixing well to coat each piece.
3. Lay out butternut squash pieces in a parchment paper-lined  baking sheet, making sure each piece is separated.
4. Roast until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
