Simple Spaghetti (Squash) & (Vegan) Bolognese Sauce

This spin on Spaghetti Bolognese is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free. Additionally, it is super simple to make, and while it packs minimal calories compared to the original, it provides all the same comfort & warmth! 

 

Ingredients*:

 

Spaghetti

 

1 medium-sized Spaghetti Squash

Salt 

Pepper

Avocado Oil

 

Sauce

 

20-24 oz. (1 jar) Strained Tomatoes

15 oz. (1 can) Black Beans 

10 (appx.) medium White Mushrooms

Salt

Pepper

Other desired Spices (I used Oregano, Basil, Rosemary, & a touch of Crushed Red Pepper)

Handful of Baby Kale or Arugula

 

Parmesan "Cheese"

I used Minimalist Baker's recipe¹ and it was delicious!  Keeps in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks. 

 

3/4 c. Raw Cashews

3 tbsp. Nutritional Yeast

3/4 tsp. Sea salt 

1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder

 

Instructions:

 

For the Spaghetti: Halve your spaghetti squash and remove seeds. Place on a baking tray (skin side down), sprinkle with salt and pepper, and spray or drizzle with avocado oil. Set in the oven to bake at 425°F for about 40 minutes, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork. Once perfectly cooked, remove from oven. Let cool for a little (so you don't burn your fingers!) and then scoop out the flesh with a fork.

 

For the Sauce: Add all ingredients to a large saucepan, except for the greens. Warm on stove over medium-low heat.  Towards the end, add scooped spaghetti squash and greens. Mix, remove from heat, and plate. 

 

For the Parmesan Cheese: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend. Sprinkle on top of this dish, and store the rest in a sealed jar in your refrigerator to use throughout the next 3-4 weeks.

 

Enjoy! XO.
