I went to a local farmer’s market with my daughter last weekend and, in addition to pounds of fresh tomatoes, I bought some eggplant. I practically always make eggplant parmesan. Since we just had that dish a few weeks ago, I was looking to make something different. You can experiment with adding different items in place of the olives, garbanzo beans, and tomatoes. But I would recommend giving it a try, as is, first.
I have only a few regrets in my culinary career and one of them is that I did not discover spaghetti squash until later in life! You can do so much with it and the rich, buttery taste makes it a fantastic gluten-free substitute for traditional pasta.
One cup only contains 42 calories and just 0.5 grams of fat! It is also a rich source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, and vitamin B6!
This recipe, once the spaghetti squash has baked in the over, comes together in less than a minute!
YUM! These are so good and are gluten-free too! However, if you really insist on keeping that gluten, you can substitute traditional flour for the garbanzo flour…either way they taste so good.
This time I used toasted black sesame seeds but the white variety works just as well. These poppable sensations are a great source of protein with 15 grams per serving.
For a topping, I mixed together 3/4 cup vegan sour cream, 1/2 cup vegan, 1 1/2 tablespoons of crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped herb of choice (basil, oregano, dill, etc.) and salt.
