RECIPES | Roast squash with Za'atar

Roast squash with Za'atar

& seasoned yoghurt

Looking for accompaniments to the perfect roast or festive meal, we came across this recipe for roast squash from Simple Fare’s Fall/ Winter edition. We followed it to the T, and can confirm it really delivers when you’re wanting that comforting, warm, sweet savoury something from a dish. The maple almost candied the charred edges, and the flesh holds up just a little, before giving in to softness. The zesty za’atar, yogurt and lime cut through what might be quite a rich combination nicely.

It might not have been on your Grandma's Christmas dinner menu, but it should be on yours this year.
