The first time I ever tried this recipe, I was extremely skeptical. Spaghetti squash, sausage, Sriracha, and Hoisin sauce? It sounded, well, a little weird. However it’s not weird at all, it’s delicious. I constantly make it for quick meals and lately have switched from chicken sausage to leaner vegetarian crumbles and have started adding some veggies. It’s hearty, vegetarian, low-carb, and delish. Even my meat loving, veggie averse friends will dig in.

1

First you will need to cook your spaghetti squash. The easiest way to cook it is in the microwave. Lately my favorite way to do it is to just stab a bunch of holes in the squash, like you are cooking a potato and then throw the whole thing in the microwave for 10 minutes. It should be soft when you take it out.

2

In a saute pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Spray with cooking spray and add the onions and garlic. Cook for five minutes or until it becomes fragrant and begins to soften. Stir in the spinach and cook for 2 minutes more.

3

Add the vegetarian crumbles and cook for about 5 minutes, breaking it up as it cooks, until cooked through and slightly browned.

4

Add the sriracha and hoisin sauce and stir together. Let hang out and simmer for 2 minutes.

5

Stir in the spaghetti squash and serve.
