Chocolate-Covered Spaghetti Squash

Pin It!

Yesterday, I had the busiest morning known to man.
After a long run and a short breakfast, I went down to help at a food pantry (sorting cans and boxes) for three hours. Come lunchtime, my appetite was raging!

I quickly threw together some Ginger-Cashew Kale.

Then I toasted up a Rudi’s spelt English muffin with sbl and made a simple spaghetti squash side dish. Put everything on a cute Christmas plate and ate it all up.

Ohmigosh Spaghetti Squash!

(Serves 1)

  • 150 grams (about 1 an 1/2 cups) baked spaghetti squash
  • 1 tsp good Dijon mustard (I love Whole Foods brand)
  • 1 1/2 or 2 tablespoons mayo of choice, such as nayonaise (fat-free or regular) or Veganaise
  • garlic salt to taste
  • a little over 1/8 cup water
  • (Optional: Sometimes I like to mix corn and/or chopped brussels sprouts and nutritional yeast into the squash)

Mix all the ingredients (except the squash and optional ingredients) in a cup.  Then pour over the squash and stir.  Add optional ingredients if you wish.  Eat cold.

This morning’s been pretty busy too. I just now found out that it’s National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day. Seriously, how did I not already know this? I am a disgrace to the chocolate-covered world!

    That was so sweet of you to help sort food for the less fortunate. We had a similar event here at the weekend and it is so heart-warming not just to help, but to see so many other people helping as well. Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to help those less fortunate.

    As for chocolate-covered day, I think we’ll be celebrating with lots of hot cocoa to keep warm. (It snowed 25+ cm yeterday; no outdoor running for a while…)
