This side is not only stunningly gorgeous, but it's also awesomely delicious. The flavors are so fresh and striking, yet well-balanced. The only thing I could not figure out is why the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of tahini. This quantity is way too much, considering that the recipe instructs to spread a thin layer of the tahini mixture inside the squash. Maybe 2 tablespoons are all that are needed here.The recipe makes a large-ish quantity, supposedly serving 8 with two acorn squashes. I'd say it's more like 12 servings as a side dish. In any case, the leftovers are drop-dead wonderful and I'm not complaining!
