Wash and cut delicata squash lengthwise. Leave seeds in.
Lay on a lined baking sheet and drizzle olive oil on it.
Add 3-4 cloves garlic on the baking sheet as well peel on.
Roast in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 35-40 minutes or until fully cooked and slightly browned.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, use a fork to scrape out seeds from the middle of each squash piece.
Use the same fork to scrape out the flesh of squash and place in blender.
Cut the ends of the garlic cloves and remove the garlic from the peel. Add garlic to a blender.
Add the rest of the ingredients listed (oil, Tahini, spices, salt, pepper, lemon juice) to a blender.
Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference, especially salt and spices.
Garnish with parsley, a drizzle of olive oil, and/or a light dusting of paprika if you wish.
Enjoy with fresh slices or veggies or gluten-free crackers (I prefer simple mills almond flour crackers) or chips!
