Spaghetti squash is so easy it hurts. I’ve done them baked and done them steamed, but honestly, it’s easiest (and I think the texture turns out better) if you just microwave the spaghetti squash. It strings out like noodles when you apply a fork to the spaghetti squash. This recipe is inspired by Moroccan flavors. I went with a modified Ras El Hanout spice mix (due to allergies at the table, as well as lacking a couple ingredients). It turned out delicious!
1 large spaghetti squash (about the size of an American football)
1 tbsp butter (oil instead, if vegan)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp cilantro, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cardamon, ground
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice, ground
1/4 tsp coriander, ground
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
1/4 tsp turmeric, ground
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp clove, ground
1/4 C rice milk
  • Put a cut into the top and bottom of the spaghetti squash.
  • Microwave for 5 minutes, flip bottom of squash to the top, and resume microwaving for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove spaghetti squash from microwave, cut in half lengthwise and allow to cool on the counter.
  • Melt butter in a ramekin.
  • Mix together all dry seasonings with melted butter. Stir in well.
  • Add rice milk and stir until well mixed.
  • When spaghetti squash has cooled, remove and discard (or save for roasting later) seeds.
  • Holding the spaghetti squash over a large bowl, use a fork to pull at the squash flesh, going with the grain. Pull toward the center. It should come out in “noodles.” If you find the spaghetti squash to be too stubborn, microwave it for another 2 minutes and try again.
  • Gently fold seasoning mix in with spaghetti squash until well mixed.
  • Serve hot, garnished with cilantro or parsley if available.
