Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash…I have heard about you for so long and now I have finally experienced the joy!

As you can learn online, there are a million ways to cook (bake, roast, etc.) the squash, but since this is “Cheap and Easy,” I include the fastest means below:

  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise (see above). This may be difficult–don’t cut off your fingers!
  • Scoop the seeds/inside mush out.
  • Microwave the squash halves for 8 minutes.
  • Scoop it out!

You can serve like spaghetti with marinara and vegan cheese or just with vegan margarine and garlic! It’s super nutritious and low-calorie.

Also roast the seeds for about 5 minutes (until they start to darken) for more nutrition and a great snack! (I just throw them on a piece of tin foil and wrap that up.
