spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
1 1/2 cups
minced fresh ginger
ground black pepper
1 (12 ounce) package
broccoli coleslaw mix
red bell pepper, diced
sliced green onions
chopped fresh cilantro
cubed cooked chicken breasts
The sauce part of this is perfect! I added a little more heat to mine by adding a little more chili garlic and also some siracha. I just used whatever veggies I had in the fridge for the stir fry part.
Do NOT mix the spaghetti squash into the overall mixture. It will get super gummy and turn into mush. Just layer some spaghetti squash down on your plate and then ladle the sauce/veggie/meat mixture on top.
This made way closer to 6 servings for me. When putting it into a calorie calculator it would be about 225 calories per serving!
After preparing it as written, I added more ginger, more fish sauce, more chili sauce and 2 minced cloves of garlic. When serving I squeezed some fresh lime juice over the top and topped with an egg. Still, I felt the sauce was missing something, but I really can't put my finger on it. I do think this is a good start. I do love the idea of using this with spaghetti squash for those who may be gluten intolerant or low carbing it. In my oven, I cook my squash at 375 for about 45 minutes to an hour for a crisp tender texture. All ovens are different. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I'm eating low carb due to diabetes and this recipe is awesome! I've really missed noodle dishes like phad thai and this version is one that I can enjoy & the taste and texture are great. I increased the chili garlic sauce, fish sauce, and fresh ginger. I also added the spaghetti squash into the sauteed vegetable mix with no problem (I used about 1/2 a squash). This will be added to our regular dinner rotation for sure. Thanks for the recipe.
You made me love spaghetti squash! I microwaved the squash for 8 minutes after poking with a fork. I didn't have any broccoli slaw so I used some cabbage instead, can't wait to try it with the slaw.I also added some basil. I can't believe anyone would think the sauce was bland, much less add sugar! Thank you for sharing a fantastic receipe. We will definitely be making this again.
This recipe is a great alternative to other spaghetti squash recipes, and useful for items in my fridge and pantry. I used bean sprouts, snap peas, minced ginger, and zucchini. Used half of a spaghetti squash left over from another recipe, reheated in microwave. Subbed minced garlic and a bit of red curry paste for the chile-garlic sauce. Very good.
Good recipe. Could easily make this without the spaghetti squash.
My husband and I are up to our ears in spaghetti squash so we are always looking for new recipes to use them up. This recipe tasted delicious although I felt it was unnecessarily overcomplicated. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I made an adapted version. You could really use any vegetables here, I happened to have string beans, red and green peppers, onion and squash on hand. For my sauce I used this recipe as inspiration but simply combined chicken broth, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger powder and peanut butter on the stovetop and it was excellent. My hubby added a bit of wasabi to his and enjoyed that flavor as well. We will definitely make this again.
I usually skip complicated recipes but love this one.
