Spaghetti Squash Recipe


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

ingredients for Spaghetti Squash Recipe


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and pulp.
  • Drizzle the cut sides of the spaghetti squash with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the squash halves, cut side down, on a baking sheet.
  • Roast the spaghetti squash in the preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes, or until the flesh is tender and easily shreds into strands with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.
  • While the squash is roasting, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour in the coconut milk, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine all the flavors. Allow the sauce to simmer gently for 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • Once the spaghetti squash has cooled slightly, use a fork to scrape the flesh, creating long strands that resemble spaghetti noodles. Transfer the strands to the skillet with the curry sauce.
