Chef's Special Spaghetti Squash

HealthyVegan's picture
This healthy spaghetti squash recipe is an excellent way to get some squash in your diet in a bit of a different way. Max out on greens by using a lot of parsley in a delicious lemon caper sauce. I like making healthy vegan recipes that use some raw ingredients for their full nutritional power, but this sauce would also be beautiful with roasted garlic.
  Spaghetti squash 1 , halved and roasted
  Lemon 1 , zested and juiced
  Parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped (Or 1 Handful)
  Capers 2 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green onion 1 , chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sundried tomatoes 10 , soaked and chopped
  Sea salt 2 Teaspoon
  Toasted pumpkin seeds 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)

Cut your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, poke some holes in the flesh, then rub with a small amount of olive oil and then a sprinkle of sea salt. Place the halves face up on a baking dish and put in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes.
While the squash is roasting, put the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. If you like, you can put this in a food processor for a few seconds to make more of a paste.
Once the squash is finished, scoop the flesh into a bowl and get it separated into strands. Toss with the sauce, and serve topped with some toasted pumpkin seeds. I hope you enjoy this healthy spaghetti squash recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes
