Spaghetti squash is a wonderful vegetable and if you haven't tried it, you are missing out! This ancient cucurbit has it's roots in china, it migrated to south America and now it is a frequent flyer on dinner tables all around the world. You may not know how easy this delicious, low carb noodle replacer actually is so today I am sharing with you how to best cook this wonderful and versatile delight! Spaghetti squash is almost ubiquitous in today's low carb, keto, paleo friendly world. The truth is, even if you are not prescribed to any of the latter, you will love this versatile veggie! I am sharing with you two different ways to easily prepare this delicious squash. Then you have a blank canvas to do with it as you will. The firs way is to bake it. Iike to cut mine in half across the diameter of the squash. This takes some skill and some safety factors. These squash are very hard with a thick skin and they can be slippery. I like to secure mine with a bit of non slip drawer liner just to be sure that it won't slip out from under my knife and cause an injury. Then simply work your knife around and split it in half. I like to place my squash on a baking sheet lined with foil to make for easy clean up. Scoop out the seeds and fibers from the center of the squash. I like to use a sharp edged spoon or even my ice cream spade works very well. Now drizzle a bit of oil inside and brush it all around, inside and out. Place the squash cut side down on the foil and bake in a 400 degree oven for about an hour or until a knife pierces the squash easily all the way to the center. You may have a bit of caramelization on the bottom and that is just awesome! To cook the squash in the microwave, simply pierce the squash all over, about five or six times with a sharp knife and place in a baking dish or pie plate. That is all the prep you need. Place your squash in the microwave on high for 9 to 12 minutes. Mine took 12 minutes and when it is tender and a knife easily pierces the squash, it is ready to go. When you remove your squash from the microwave you can cut it in half either the long or short way and scoop out the seeds and fibers. Then it's time to make "spaghetti"! All you need to do to make vegetable spaghetti with this squash is to gently begin to scrape a fork across the flesh of the squash. Soon you will see the "noodles' reveal themselves! Continue scraping all the way down to the shell and then you can use these as vegetable spaghetti and top with marinara or any other sauce and some delicious cheese for a pasta bake that is low carb and amazing. You can simply top the squash with some butter, salt and pepper and enjoy. I love to add some parmesan cheese and have a low carb version of an Italian classic comfort food, pasta con pepe con parma. If you love a pasta bake, then use shredded spaghetti squash in place of your pasta and make a delicious low carb version of those dishes. Tasty Spaghetti squash is full of vitamins A, B, C and E as well as folic acid and other vitamins and minerals. Not only is this squash super healthy for you but also great for your dogs and cats! Just like pumpkin this squash is a great way to supplement your pet's diet and they love it! That is how easy it is to make spaghetti squash! I hope you give it a try some time soon and I hope you love it! Happy Eating! NOTE: If you don't like to microwave your food that is your choice. I am not here to argue. However, the "science" behind the questionable facts that microwaving depletes food of it's nutrition are unfounded and false. There is no radiation absorbed by the food and the method of cooking simply causes water molecules to super heat, causing this method of cooking to be much faster than conventional cooking. Cooking food in general depletes it of its nutrition from the moment you introduce heat. Please refrain from sharing your disagreement of the use of the microwave. Everyone can make the choice that is best for themselves. Thank you for respecting my channel.

Vegan Magic Cookie Bars with Easy Homemade Vegan Coconut Caramel

Vegan Magic Cookie Bars with Easy Homemade Vegan Coconut Caramel Let me just start out by saying that you're welcome. Yeah. You're welcome. I have hacked the traditional "Seven Layer Bar" or "Magic Cookie Bar" recipe to make it completely vegan, and pretty much just as easy to make as the original. If you can find vegan chocolate chips, the red box of Nabisco graham crackers (or your favorite vegan gluten free brand), and sweetened condensed coconut milk, then you're pretty much 3/7 of the say there. These bars are so easy to make that even a high school kid could make them. In fact, the first time I had these was when I made them in my high school “foods” class. Other than the two ingredient coconut caramel sauce that I’ve developed to take the place of the butterscotch chips, this recipe is pretty much a dump-and-bake.

Spaghetti Squash 101 | Everything You Need To Know | Clean & Delicious

Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorite fall ingredients and in this video I'll show you how to shop, store, prep and work with this low-calorie, nutrient rich ingredient. SUBSCRIBE: Clean &Delicious SPAGHETTI SQAUSH RECIPES: For those of you who have been reading/watching of a while, this is an updated version of my original Spaghetti Squash 101 which I posted several years back. We decided it was time to freshen her up, so here we go… wheeee! Spaghetti Squash is an oblong yellow variety of winter squash that has a mild, sweet, nutty flavor and, when cooked, has long thin ‘spaghetti-like’ strands, that have a little bit of crunch to them, kind of like an al dente pasta. I’m not going to tell you that it tastes just like pasta, because it doesn’t, it tastes like squash, but if you’re open to trying something new it’s a great nutrient-dense, low carb alternative to traditional pastas. Season Its peak season is the fall and the winter but you’ll see it in grocery stores all year round and I find it to be a great veggie to use throughout the year. It’s as delicious and versatile in the Summer as it is in the winter. Nutritional Benefits Spaghetti Squash is packed with beta carotene, vitamin A, potassium and folic acid. One of the perks of this winter squash is that it’s high in nutrients but low in calories; one cup of spaghetti squash has just 40 calories, so it’s a great addition to just about anytime of diet. Shopping When you are shopping for spaghetti squash you want your squash to be hard on the outside and then feel surprisingly heavy for their size. You may notice that the shades of yellow on the skin will vary, some will be lighter some will be darker, but that really doesn’t affect the squash at all so you don’t need to pay too much attention to it. However, you do want to make sure that there are no soft spots or green spots on the skin of your squash. Storing Spaghetti Squash likes to be stores in a cool dry place. I leave mine right on the counter, and it will last a good three to four weeks. Preparation When you’re ready to work with your spaghetti squash, you’ve got a couple of options; if you’re in a hurry you can steam your spaghetti squash in the microwave (shown in the video) but for the most flavor roasting it is the way to go. Serving Spaghetti Squash makes a great side dish and can be kept super simple; adding a little parmesan cheese and red pepper flake makes for a sensational dish Another option is Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs (I sub out the past a for the squash) And then of course there’s the Spaghetti Squash Chili Mac Simply layer your favorite chili on top of the cooked squash and sprinkle with a bit of shredded cheese, cilantro and onions. And one last idea is my Spaghetti Squash and Garlicky Greens The options are truly endless when it comes to spaghetti squash and I would LOVE to hear how you like to eat yours?
