The creaminess as well as the tartness of goat cheese rounds out the sweetness that roasting brings to fresh squash, the garlicky tahini dressing is the added bonus.

We made this dish a couple weeks ago to serve with our lemon rosemary roasted chicken.  When we were planning this menu we had no idea that the finished meal would be a “mini” pre-Thanksgiving.  This acorn squash dish was inspired by a roasted pumpkin dish I found in Australian Gourmet.  This dish is middle eastern inspired by using a garlicky tahini dressing, cilantro and goat cheese, which went very well with the roasted acorn squash.  In fact, this would be a great substitution for those “yams” that always find their way onto a Thanksgiving table.  As well it makes a great vegetarian meal.
