Better’n Home Fries.

I’ve done it. For the first time in weeks I have made something that I find REALLY tasty. And I made them on accident. (Isn’t that the way it always goes?)
Well, obviously I meant to make them. But I thought it was just going to be a way to use up the butternut squash I bought, oh…four weeks ago? But this is easily one of my new favorite recipes, if I may toot my own horn. I’d appreciate any feedback on recipe tweaks.
Also, just as a warning, this recipe is done in hindsight. I could very well be off a bit.
1 butternut squash, medium size (mine was about 8 or 9″ and kind of squat), peeled, seeded, and cut into 1″ cubes
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp salt
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c tahini (optional)
1/2 tsp lemon juice (optional)
Preheat oven to 450F. Cut up squash and put in a bowl. Add olive oil, garlic, spices and salt, and stir thoroughly so that the spices are distributed equally over all the squash. Spread squash in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in oven for about 30 minutes, or until soft inside and starting to brown.
Mix tahini and lemon juice. Serve alongside squash.
