Spaghetti squash has less calories, and is much more nutritious than regular
One medium spaghetti squash
3-4 cups of any of your favorite mushrooms
1 TSBP of coconut or your favorite oil
1 bunch of Swiss chard
3-4 garlic cloves
1 medium onion
1 can of coconut milk
1 TBSP of lemon pepper seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
I love this spaghetti squash recipe, and it is mostly vegan, with the exception of cheese,
which you can substitute for vegan cheese if you’d like.
I start off with washing a spaghetti squash and pocking holes in it with a knife.
Meanwhile, I preheat the oven to 400 degrees FH.
I put the squash into the oven, and let it bake for about 40-60 minutes, or until I can
put a knife through the squash easily. Then I take out the squash and let it cool down
outside the oven. When the squash is cool enough I cut it in half, take the seeds out,
and then use a fork to go over the squash and separate the strands until they look like
spaghetti. I set the squash aside, and work on the sauce.
Vegan mushroom Alfrado sauce:
I start off with 3 heads of garlic. Sometimes I also add one onion, I didn’t have any
onions at home so I skipped this step. I add one table spoon of coconut oil and cut the
garlic into small slivers, and add it to a skillet and cook until brown. If you add an
onion, you would cut it into 3 cm circles and add. I then add 3-4 cups of cut
mushrooms into the pan and stir with the garlic and onions. At this point I really like
adding spices, my favorite spice mixture is the lemon pepper zest (you can buy it at
Cosco). After about 8 minutes, when the mushrooms have softened, I add one can of
coconut milk, cover the lid and let it simmer. After about 5 minutes I add one bunch of
Swiss chard that has been cut into 20 CM stripes. I let it cook for a few more minutes
until the Swiss chard is softened, and then add salt and pepper to taste.
Use an oven safe dish, mix spaghetti squash with sauce and put in the dish. Add as
much grated cheese on top as you would like. You can either choose to microwave it so
the cheese would melt (not recommended), or put the dish in the oven under the
broiler option and cook it for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts.
