Roasted Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Recipe Type: Main Dishes
Author: Coach Nancy
Ingredients
  • 1 small (2 1/2 pound) spaghetti squash
  • 1 can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 3 cups thinly sliced greens, such as baby kale or spinach
  • 2 -3 cups grilled chicken, diced
  • 2 cups roasted veggies
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Halve squash lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out seeds and discard.
  3. Place squash cut-side down in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Pour 1 cup water into the dish and roast until squash shells are tender when pressed with your finger, about 30 minutes. Let sit until cool enough to handle. Leave oven on.
  4. Meanwhile, pour tomatoes into a strainer set over a bowl. Set tomatoes aside and pour juice into a blender.
  5. Add almond butter, curry powder and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and blend until smooth.
  6. Rake a fork back and forth across squash to remove flesh in strands, keeping shells intact. Transfer squash to a bowl and toss with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Return shells cut-side up to the baking dish.
  7. Spoon one-third of the squash into shells, dividing evenly.
  8. Top with half of the tomatoes, greens, chicken, and veggies then drizzle with about one-third of the almond sauce.
  9. Repeat the layering.
  10. Top with remaining squash and sauce.
  11. Roast until filling is heated through and greens have wilted, about 15 minutes.
  12. If you don’t like curry, leave out the almond butter and curry and replace with 1 teaspoon of each: basil, parsley, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder.
