Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash about 2 lbs
  • 2 tbsp vegan buttery spread such as Earth Balance or fragrant nut oil
  • 1/2 tsp good-quality curry powder
  • 2 –3 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds or chopped walnuts lightly toasted in a dry skillet

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Place, cut side up, in a casserole dish with 1/2 inch of water. Cover tightly with foil and bake until easily pierced with a fork, about 40 to 45 minutes. Or, if you don’t have a knife that’s sharp enough, just wrap the whole squash up in foil, place in a casserole dish, and bake until you can easily pierce with a fork. This will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size and density of the squash.
  • When the squash is just cool enough to handle, scrape it lengthwise with a fork into a bowl, to remove the spaghetti-like strands of flesh. Discard the seeds as you do so.
  • Combine the spaghetti squash strands with the remaining ingredients except for the nuts in a mixing bowl. Toss well and stuff back into the squash shells.
  • Return the filled squash shells to the baking dish and bake until well heated through, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Cut each squash half in half yet again to make 4 portions, and serve.
