Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos (or tamari if not paleo)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced diagonally
  • 2 cups cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)

Instructions

Cut a spaghetti squash in half length wise and scoop out seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13 x 9 pyrex and pour 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until flesh is very tender. Once done, scoop out flesh with a fork so it breaks apart into strings, set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together coconut aminos, garlic, coconut sugar, ginger and white pepper; set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.

Stir in spaghetti squash and sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.
