Coconut Curry Spaghetti Squash
- 1 Spaghetti Squash (@3lbs or 1365g)
- 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) butter
- 3 large cloves garlic , minced (or to taste)
- 1 small onion , diced
- 14 ounces (397 g) coconut milk (one can)
- 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) curry powder , or to taste
- 1/2 tablespoon (7.5 ml) paprika
- 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) soy sauce or fish sauce, or to taste
- fresh cracked black pepper , to taste
- 1-2 Tablespoons (15 ml) hot sauce (optional), or to taste
- 3 Tablespoons (45 ml) minced fresh cilantro
- Preheat Oven to 375°F. Oil a sheet pan with olive oil.
- Carefully cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and connecting strands, then place cut side down on the prepared sheet pan.
- Bake for 45 minutes, or until the squash flesh becomes tender and separates easily into strands with a fork. Finish by gently loosening and removing the "spaghetti strands" from the shells. Set aside.
- Heat large pan on medium-high heat. Melt butter, then add garlic and onion. Cook until fragrant and translucent. Add coconut milk, curry powder, paprika, soy/fish sauce, black pepper and hot sauce (optional). Bring to a low simmer for about 3 minutes.
- Add spaghetti squash strands and toss into the sauce. Cook for about 1 minute or until the spaghetti squash is warmed. Don't overcook the spaghetti squash strands, especially if they’re already too soft or else they'll become mush.
- Remove the pan from the heat, add fresh cilantro and additional salt and pepper, if needed, to taste. Serve warm.
