Chocolate-Covered Spaghetti Squash

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!

    I didnt know it was chocolate-covered day! As if we needed another excuse to eat chocolate 🙂 I already had some cocoa in by breakfast and I can’t wait to have some more chocolate things today 😀 Love this!

  2. Annette says

    I have some cookies ‘n cream chocolate cake from Whole Foods that I will eat to celebrate!!
    And….I just bought my very first jar of Artisana coconut butter, so I am going to make some of your little melties! 🙂

    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…)

  4. abby says

    oh i’m so glad i read your blog or i would’ve missed out on chocolate day! but i probably would’ve eaten chocolate anyway ;). now i’ll just eat extra!

  5. Susan says

    I had no idea it was chocolate-covered anything day! Thanks for the heads up. I just made some of Averie’s pb cups, so I guess I’m in business!

    You are so sweet, Katie! Helping out at the food pantry? You are an angel 🙂

    I already had some chocolate pancakes, and I am planning to have raw chocolate-mint for a snack this afternoon. Then I will probably have some Bitter Chocolate Cake for Dessert sometimes today 🙂

  7. [email protected] says

    Well it might be national but I think that needs to be made international and extended to Britain, given the, er, hmmm…. 🙂
    I’ll just repeat my comment from your post the other day (and of course show my international solidarity) and shovel down loads of chocolate-covered raisins. Again 🙂

  8. Fi says

    Eh!! By going and eating Some chocolate now of course!I can’t believe I didn’t know this! Well , maybe I did on a subconscious level because I had a hot chocate earlier on today 🙂 xx

    I plan on having a big bowl of cocoa oat bran with coconut butter. Mmmm, chocolate oat bran, I love thee. That kale recipe sounds awesome!

  10. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan says

    I came to your blog just now to tell you precisely that: it’s National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day! You’re on top of it, girl 🙂

    I think I’m taking another mini trip to Dallas this weekend, woohoo! It’s warm there right now, right?

  11. Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) says

    I plan to celebrate by giving my neighbor a dozen choco covered oreo cookie + cream cheese balls I made for him for housesitting. Not kidding, I was chocolate-covering dozens of goodies today!!!! The irony! 🙂

    Your kale and cashews looks great…in this sea of chocolate season in the sphere, it is really refreshing to see veggies. I am sooo guilty of choco overload posts myself. Lol.!

  12. Namaste Gurl says

    WHAT, National Chocolate day? Hmmm, I’m all over it. Baker’s unsweetened chocolate to the rescue 🙂 And maybe some coconut thrown in the, too!

    PS– I bought some christmas molds at my craft store and made the coconut melties. Um, can I just say, to do for? I ate like 5 in one sitting 🙂

  13. melissa @ the delicate place says

    i had spag squash for lunch today! with steamed carrots, celery and roasted beet. i may have to indulge in a store bought vegan brownie! i was craving one last night!

  14. Brandie says

    How WEIRD, I’m having spaghetti squash too! Not chocolate covered tho 😉 BUT, I did chocolate cover something today and didn’t even realize it was celebratory! I made a green smoothie this morning and added a tad too much stevia! I like things pretty sweet, so for ME to say TOO SWEET is pretty dang sweet Lol… anyway, I thought to myself “How can I counter all this sweetness?” ADD CHOCOLATE of course! I tossed in a little unsweetened cocoa powder and shook it, and it was AWESOME! Yay to chocolate covered green smoothies!! *giggle*

  15. Albizia says

    I didn’t know about this special day but nevertheless I ate a ton of chocolate . I wanted to make fudge but something went wrong and I ended up with a big pan of chocolate cream. It was ugly but it was irresistible. I sweetened it with date syrup and sprinkled coconut on top and everyone at home loved it. Yum! 🙂

  16. Annie says

    Oooh I love this idea for ‘pasketti squash! I’ve been obsessed with it lately and bought a ton even though I’m starting to get burnt out on it. This will definitely help me sustain my obsession. Will try it for lunch!

  17. Paula says

    Ummm, this was interesting to try once. I ate it and it was “interesting”, but not crazy about it to make again. On to your other gems Katie!

  18. CALANI HERASEMLUK says
