Thai Spaghetti Squash Recipe:

   Thai Spaghetti Squash

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup dry roasted sunbutter (or peanut butter if no allergies) 
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar (or honey) 
  • 2 Tbsp. curry sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • Cilantro for garnish

Directions:

1. Cut squash in half and cook face down in sprayed baking dish for 40

minutes, or cook in microwave for 15 minutes until cooked through.

2. Place all remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend or

process until sauce is smooth. If you prefer a runnier  sauce, add a

little more water or coconut milk.

3. Do a taste test, adding more soy sauce if not salty enough, or

more cayenne if not spicy enough. If too salty, add a squeeze of fresh lime

juice.

4. Scrape the squash out of the rind into a serving bowl. Pour sauce over the

Top, garnish with cilantro, and serve.

Enjoy!!
