This colorful dish is so filling and flavorful, you won’t believe it’s both vegan and gluten-free! We last ate spaghetti squash a long time ago, so we’d forgotten how magically pasta-like it is. Topped with a hearty, amazing slaw made from red cabbage and black beans, then crowned with homemade salsa verde, this meal is truly a winner. It’s both easy to make, and colorful! In fact, your friends will be begging you for the recipe, and you’ll want to make this meal again and again. With its vibrant, red and green hues, the dish also makes a great, festive lead-up to the holiday season. Try it, we’re certain you’ll agree.

Salsa Verde

¾ cup fresh salsa (hot or mild to taste)
1 avocado, diced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1-2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

Spaghetti Squash

1 whole spaghetti squash
Olive oil to brush onto squash

Directions

Slice spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and coat inside with thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place squash halves upside down in medium-sized pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes at 400 degrees until pulp is soft. You should be able to insert a fork into it without difficulty.

Meanwhile, prepare the slaw in a large mixing bowl. You’ll be wowed by its beauty. After you have squeezed in the lime juice, set mixture aside to marinate.

Place avocado, salsa, garlic, cilantro and lime juice into blender or food processor and combine until your mixture is smooth and slightly frothy. Scoop the slaw into squash halves and fill to overflowing, then spoon a liberal dollop of salsa verde over the top. Finally, garnish your masterpiece with extra cilantro, salsa, toasted pepitas, or any other topping of your choice. Feel free to get creative!

This amazing creation serves 2-3 people, but feel free to double the recipe if you have more guests. Serve by itself (it’s filling!) or with wine, beer, cider and/or a side of gluten-free garlic bread. Of course, any leftovers will keep just fine in the refrigerator for several days. But they definitely won’t last that long.

Bon appetit, enjoy!
