Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 24 tablespoons melted coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/3 cup baby carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • Handful of chopped cashews, optional
  • Salt and peper to taste

Instructions

  1. Using a fork, pierce several holes in spaghetti squash. Place the squash in a small microwave-safe glass dish and microwave on high for about five minutes to soften it. Then slice it in half, scoop out the seeds, and drizzle up to 1/4 cup olive oil in the center and on the edges of each half. Place face down in a larger, 9×13 baking dish and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. While the spaghetti squash is baking, combine lime juice, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, pressed garlic cloves, almond butter, almond milk, ginger, and sea salt in a blender and mix on a low to medium setting until smooth.
  3. Pour 2-4 tablespoons olive oil in a sauté pan and sauté carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and red onion for about 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables soften slightly and deepen in color. You can cover the pan to soften the vegetables even more and to prevent uneven cooking. Add two eggs to the vegetable mixture and scramble them together until the egg is cooked through. Sprinkle green onion and cilantro onto the mixture and stir gently.
  4. Once the spaghetti squash is done, comb a fork through each half to create noodles and combine with sauce mixture in blender and vegetable mixture in sauté pan. Serve immediately and eat leftovers with about a day or two. See Notes for variations on mixing the three sets of ingredients together.

Notes

When combining ingredients, you can layer each one on top of the other. For example, layer the noodles on a plate, top with vegetables, and then drizzle with sauce. Another option is to combine the sauce with the vegetables first and then add them to the noodles. You may not want to use all the sauce in this batch. If you choose not to use all the sauce, store it in a glass container and use within about 2-3 days.
