Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out seeds. Drizzle olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt over cut side of squash halves. Place squash, cut side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover squash loosely with aluminum foil, and bake for 1 hour. Once cooked, remove foil and let squash cool slightly.
  2. Scoop flesh from cooked squash halves into a food processor. Add garlic, tahini, yogurt, vinegar, paprika, allspice and remaining 1 teaspoon salt; blend until creamy. Pause to push sides down if necessary. Scoop dip into a serving bowl, and chill for 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Before serving, garnish dip with a dash of paprika and pepitas. Serve with dippers, such as veggies and crackers.
