  • Heat the oven to 425F. Put the squash and onions in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, salt, and black pepper, and toss well. Spread, skin down, on a baking sheet, and roast for 40 minutes until the vegetables have taken on some color and are cooked through. Keep an eye on the onions: they may cook faster than the squash, so may need to be removed earlier. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  • Meanwhile, place the tahini in a small bowl with the lemon juice, water, garlic, and salt. Whisk to the consistency of honey, adding more water or tahini as necessary.
  • Pour the olive oil into a small frying pan set on medium-low heat. Add the pine nuts and salt. Cook for two minutes, stirring, until the nuts are golden brown. Set aside in a small bowl.
  • To serve, spread the vegetables on a platter and drizzle with tahini sauce. Scatter the pine nuts on top, followed by the za'atar and parsley.


For 10 servings use 2 sheet pans for optimal browning.
