Instructions:
  1. Start cooking this vegan dinner by preheating the oven to 375 F. Cover a baking tray with the small amount of olive oil.
  2. Cut squash in two pieces, lengthwise. Get rid of all the seeds carefully. Transfer these two halves to the tray.
  3. Bake everything for 45 minutes. Scoop this baked flesh out of each half.
  4. Preheat a large frying pan with a thick bottom. Add butter and melt it. Now add minced garlic to the pan and cook it until the oil becomes fragrant. For the garlic not to burn, stir it constantly.
  5. When the oil is hot enough, add baked strands of squash spaghetti . Stir everything carefully. Do not overcook it and try not to turn it into mash.
  6. Transfer this fried squash spaghetti to a large plate. Serve it with salt, chili pepper and fresh ground black pepper. Add grated hard cheese to make this meal more fragrant. Serve this dish with chopped parsley.

 If you want to make this meal vegan, all you need is to replace butter with coconut or almond oil and use homemade vegan cheese (or omit it).

 You may use it for cooking more complicated vegan dishes.  

  •         You can use spaghetti squash instead of classical noodles for cooking mac and cheese. In this case, your dish will still be tasty but more healthy and low in calories.
  •         Make delicious salads. Toss it with nuts, cheese and light dressing. The easiest choice is almonds and feta, served with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice and herbs.
  •         Make nice toasts. Topped over a slice of bread together with humus, it makes a perfect hearty breakfast.

 We hope you will like this simple recipe and all the dishes you can cook with it. Bon Appetit!
