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 :)
