1 medium butternut squash, 1.5 to 2 pounds
2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
For the Yogurt Sauce
6 ounces plain Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons gochujang paste
For the Herb Paste
1/4 cup chopped parsley, or cilantro
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Pinch Sea salt
1/4 cup pepitas, toasted
Heat oven to 425°F. Wash and dry squash. Leave the skin on the squash and cut in half, lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds with a spoon and discard, then cut into 3/4-inch wedges. Mix the oil, Cinnamon, salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, toss the squash with the cinnamon mixture until well coated (add more oil, if needed). Place squash on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for 35-40 minutes, until fork tender and beginning to brown in spots.
While the squash bakes, mix the yogurt and gochujang paste until well combined; set aside. Stir the parsley, olive oil, garlic and pinch of salt together in a small bowl; set aside.
Toast the pepitas in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until they begin to pop and brown. Remove from skillet and set aside until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, swirl yogurt sauce on a platter and lay squash over sauce. Garnish with herb paste and pepitas on top.
