Description

I love spaghetti squash, and the simple addition of kale makes this a bowlful of yumminess!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Spaghetti Squash
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2 bunches Kale, Stalks Removed And Torn Into Pieces
  • ½ whole Onion, Diced
  • ½ teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

With a sharp knife, VERY CAREFULLY cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. (Stick the knife into the center of the squash, then cut down. Again—be careful!) Scoop out the seeds and pulp in the center and discard. Place the squash, cut side up, on a large baking sheet. Rub a little olive oil over the cut surface, then place the pan in the oven for 1 hour or until a fork is easily inserted into the squash.

While the squash is cooking, saute the kale: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until starting to turn color. Throw in the kale, sprinkle in some salt and pepper, and stir to saute until the onions are golden about the kale is partly cooked, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

When the squash is cooked, use a fork to scrape the stringy squash out of the shell. Add the squash to a bowl. Mix together 1 tablespoon olive oil with the balsamic vinegar. Drizzle it over the squash, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and add the chili powder. Toss to combine.

Add the squash to individual bowls, then top with a good amount of sauteed kale. You will have squash left over!

(Or, you can toss all the kale and half the squash together.)

Made this a while ago, froze the other half of the squash, and will be making it again tonight! It’s an easy weeknight meal that’s simple and delicious! Thanks for the recipe :)
