There are literally hundreds of spaghetti squash recipes but mostly every single one of them includes tomatoes and/or red sauce. I wanted to do something original, delicious, and creamy. This herb-infused creation takes a few fairly bland vegetables – spaghetti squash, cauliflower, and mushrooms – and elevates them into a main or side dish sensation.
As always, feel free to use whatever herbs you have on hand, or simply follow the recipe exactly. I will note, however, that it may be difficult to find German Thyme but substituting more lemon thyme or parsley will also work great.
I heart Brussels Sprouts! Growing up I remember my mom anxiously awaiting spring’s harvest. These yummy small cabbages can be served savory or sweet.
I used maple syrup in the initial cooking phase to achieve the underlying sweetness in the finished dish. The creaminess comes from Go Veggie’s Vegan Chive and Garlic Cream Cheese.
My ancestry is half Italian so anything with the word “Roman” in it automatically gets my attention.
The jury is still out on whether or not to call this funky looking veggie broccoli or cauliflower. I think it tends to be more like cauliflower but is a little more tender and sweeter.
Whatever you choose to call it, romanesco is a wonderful vegetable with a lot to offer. If you happen to find some at your local farmers market or grocery, romanesco is an excellent addition to vegan recipes for pastas, salads, and adding a dimension to just about any dish.
Nutritionally speaking, this veggie contains high levels of carotenoids, iron, Vitamin C and folates.
