Pear and Roasted Fall Produce with Tahini Dressing
This recipe is a great way to take advantage of abundant fall produce. It’s packed with healthy ingredients such as Brussels sprouts, pears, butternut squash, bell peppers, mushrooms and more.
Brussels sprouts contain more than 100 percent of your daily vitamin C needs and are surprisingly high in protein. Pears are considered one of the highest-fiber fruits, with an average of approximately six grams per fruit. Butternut squash has a naturally sweet flavor that really comes out when it is roasted. This winter squash is also high in protein and heart-healthy fats.
The flavorful green tahini dressing pairs perfectly with this recipe’s ingredients. Tahini is one of the best sources of calcium, helps to prevent anemia and promotes healthy digestion.
