I’ve had spaghetti squash before in lieu of pasta and it was very tasty and satisfying. This dish looks delicious! You can find the full article by visiting The Detoxinista. It is, of course, a vegan dish.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 a yellow onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 sprigs fresh sage leaves
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
If baking a spaghetti squash, preheat your oven to 400F. Slice the squash in half, scoop out the seeds in the center, and place cut-side down on a lined baking sheet. Roast at 400F for 30-45 minutes, until the shell can be easily pierced with a fork. If using traditional noodles, make the sauce first, then cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.
For the sauce, melt the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes, until tender. Transfer the onions and garlic to a blender or food processor, and add in the pumpkin puree, almond milk, sage leaves, nutritional yeast and salt.
