Veggie Tikka Masala

Another easy lunch thrown together in no time: delicious, grain and gluten free, veggie-nutrition packed, low calorie and super filling!   

It is that time of year again - spaghetti squash time!  I have eaten hundreds of nice crisp salads to get through the hot summer, but as temps cool down, I love to enjoy a nice warm meal!  Just about anything you love can be served over spaghetti squash - meat/ fish/ veggies/ all sorts of sauces/ cheeses; truly the options are endless.   

Today for me that means a culinary trip to India via the rich flavorful spices in my Tikka Masala sauce.  I have friends who could make a mean home made version of this (invitations always accepted!!)  but for now I'll use my handy jar of sauce from my favorite store: Aldi.  Just watch how quick this comes together!

Turn on dutch oven to medium heat.   Throw in 1 jar of Tikka Masala sauce.  

Add 1 bag of Butternut Squash

and 2 cups of grated Carrots

and 1 cup of thawed Sweet Green Peas.

and then just cover and let it all heat up.....about 10 minutes oughtta do it!

Meanwhile, plate 1 cup of already cooked Spaghetti Squash:

then top with 1-2 cups of the Tikka Masala Veggies!

You will be warmed up and full by the time you finish this plate of delicious food; I promise.  And you get to walk away knowing you did your whole bod a huge favor with all those good for you veggies at such a low calorie price!  Free Radicals and belly bulge, be gone!!!

You are welcome :)
