Roasted Citrus Butternut Squash

A great way to make squash. Has a lot of umami, and tastes a bit like takeout orange sesame chicken.Goes well with Saag Gosht. If possible, juice the orange including the rind, but you will need to have a mechanical juicer capable of doing it. Otherwise juice the orange and use a microplane to zest the rind.
