Simple Spiced Spaghetti Squash

YumSimple Spiced Spaghetti Squash | GrokGrub.comJust dropping in to share a quick recipe. A vegan recipe, actually.

I’ve had a large spaghetti squash hanging out on my counter for the past… three weeks? Month? But when I finally got around to slamming it into the microwave, scraping it down and dousing it with spices, it still performed beautifully. 
That’s it. Enjoy!

Recipe type: Side
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp parsley
Instructions
  1. Carefully pierce the squash all over with a sharp knife to prevent the squash bursting in the microwave.
  2. Microwave on high for 16 minutes, turning halfway through. Slice lengthwise and allow to cool enough to handle.
  3. Using a fork, lift out the seeds and discard. Then scrape out the insides into a medium mixing bowl. Mash and shred until the strands are separated.
  4. Add salt, spices and parsley. Combine thoroughly, serve warm.

    This one was gross. The turmeric made this inedible. The squash in the microwave came out well. Salt and pepper would’ve been way better

    I can’t wait to try this. Weird that the first commenter couldn’t handle 1/2 tsp of turmeric to a whole spaghetti squash. Turmeric is amazing and I’m always looking for different ways to get it into my diet! Right now, I take Gaia Herbs Turmeric capsules with black pepper. They have made me feel great!

      Some people just really don’t like turmeric, is my guess. I’ll have to check out those capsules!
