Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash & Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip Recipe


Guess what!? I finally have a recipe for you today! How exciting is this? Have you missed me?

It's fall. The weather is cooler. You may be staying in more. How about a snack? My Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash & Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip is going to become a staple of your snack menu repertoire.

This recipe started with a surprise shipment from my friends at Sabra. Luckily, the shipment arrived the day I arrived from Amsterdam! Other than several varieties of hummus and individual packages of guacamole, I received samples of Sabra's Greek Yogurt Dip!

I decided to use the Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip to make a fall appetizer. The dip is made from all natural ingredients and contains fresh zucchini, carrots, onions and basil. There are no scary things in the container!

Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash & Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip


1 cup roasted butternut squash {my twin Anna taught me a new technique: roast the butternut squash whole at 425 for about an hour, allow to cool slightly, then remove the skins and seeds}
2 tablespoons Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip
1 teaspoon peri peri spice mix or more to taste {if you can't find this at your store, use chili powder and/or red pepper flakes to taste}
salt & pepper to taste
chili oil
1-2 tablespoons salted & toasted pumpkin seeds
chips for eating

1. In a bowl, mash the roasted butternut squash.
2. Add the yogurt dip, peri peri spice and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
3. Spoon the dip into a bowl and drizzle with chili oil and top with the pumpkin seeds.
4. Serve with chips.

How good does this look? Depending on the consistency you want, you may want to puree the butternut squash before adding the rest of the ingredients, but I liked this dip chunky. The creamy yogurt dip balances the heat of the peri peri and the chili oil. Also, this dip keeps well for several days in the refrigerator.
