This is the only way to eat spaghetti squash!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Using a fork, pierce squash several times and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a fork can be inserted easily. Remove from oven and let cool while you prepare the sauce.
Heat olive oil and butter in a small pan. Saute shallots until tender and add maple syrup. Simmer for about 30 seconds.
Slice the squash in half and remove seeds. Using a fork, scrape along the inside of the skin and remove the stringy squash.
Toss sauce and squash in a bowl and serve warm.
My immersion blender came with a small bowl and attachment that allows it to work like a food processor. I love it. It is great for small quantities such as this margarine rub for corn. I had a smidgeon of the mixture left over and used it on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
When I made this dish I originally had a run-of-the-mill stewed lentil thing in mind. Then I just let my imagination run wild, grabbing whatever sounded good from my fridge and pantry. With ingredients like pomegranate molasses, cumin, smoked paprika, and fresh mint, it ended up tasting like a Middle Eastern version of baked beans. Savory, smoky, and complex-flavored with an underlying hint of sweetness, the sauce is killer.
