roasted squash with chili yogurt

Maybe it's the threat of summer on the horizon, but I definitely have been craving more vegetables lately.

don't get me wrong. I also just baked this walnut loaf cake, but I'm craving vegetables much more than usual.

while i can dig into a raw carrot stick like no other, roasting vegetables is my number one way to enjoy the earthy stuff.

this recipe is a quick one for making roasted vegetables tasty. i used pattypan squash because I think they're absolutely adorable, but this will work with your average zucchini as well. the chili yogurt adds creaminess, so vegetables haters are satisfied.

if you're looking for other roasted vegetable recipes, I'd suggest you make this roasted butternut squash one! otherwise, enjoy!
