Pita Tostadas with Butternut Squash, Black Beans, & Avocado
Serves 4
1 butternut squash, split vertically and seeds removed 
extra-virgin olive oil 
1 teaspoon cumin 
1/2 teaspoon chili powder 
kosher salt, to taste 
1 tablespoon maple syrup 
4 pita breads (6-inch) 
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained 
juice from 2 limes, divided 
1/4 cup greek yogurt 
2 avocados, sliced 
garnish: chopped cilantro and toasted pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush butternut squash halves with olive oil, and place flesh side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast until very tender when pierced with a fork, about 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool slightly, then mash in a bowl with cumin, chili powder, maple syrup, and salt.
Place pita breads on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on the edges but still chewy in the center. Remove and set aside.
Toss black beans with half of lime juice and drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt.
Whisk together yogurt with other half of lime juice and a pinch of salt. Add a little water if needed, until it’s a consistency that can be drizzled.
On each toasted pita, spread a scoop of mashed butternut squash, a scoop of black beans, and a few slices of avocado. Drizzle with the lime yogurt, then garnish with cilantro, pumpkin seeds, and a dusting of chili powder if desired. Eat!
*you’ll have lots of extra mashed butternut squash; reheat it and serve as a delicious veggie side dish the next day!
