Author Notes: I love to use this sauce for roasting winter vegetables. Often, I do a combo of parsnips, turnips, butternut squash and redskin potatos. It makes a delightful side dish to any kind of roasted or braised meat. I've also done just the butternut squash (which I absolutely love) to serve alongside a pork loin or pork chops; oddly enough, it's also a great side to German food. - Kayb
- 3 medium butternut squash
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons white or brown miso
- 1 splash rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- Peel, seed and cube squash. I like to cut in about 1-inch cubes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Whisk together remaining ingredients except sesame seeds. Pour over squash cubes in a bowl, and toss to coat.
- Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick spray. Pour squash cubes onto sheet, and spread out so there's space between. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Bake, shaking or turning with a spatula once, for 15-20 minutes, or until tender.
