Butternut squash and tahini spread

Serves 6 to 8.

Note: Authors Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi say, “This dip seems to be fantastically popular with anyone who tries it. There is something about the magical combination of tahini and pumpkin or squash that we always tend to come back to.” Serve as a starter with bread or as part of a meze selection. Date syrup can be found in health food stores and Middle Eastern markets. From “Jerusalem: A Cookbook.”
