Spaghetti squash is the most ridiculous thing. It blows my mind every time I bake it.

Once cooked, add any kind of (sugar-free!) pasta sauce. Homemade if you’re feeling enthused! It would work well as a delicious side or could be whipped up into a main if served with a source of protein like meatballs, tempeh or even whizzed up pesto.

Here’s how to prepare it:

  • Cut in half lengthways
  • Brush with a little oil
  • Add a little salt and pepper
  • Roast for about 4o minutes, cut side down until it is tender.
  • Remove the seeds with a spoon and then scrape the vegetable tendrils out with a fork.

Confused?

Nothing like an infographic to clear things up! (This says to scoop the seeds first but I think the other way around is easier).

You could add it to an abundance bowl with other veg like I shared here or pop it into some fritters with cashews and kale.
