A hearty and healthy gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan friendly recipe for Thai Peanut Red Curry Spaghetti Squash.
The spaghetti squash craze is back in full force. #sorrynotsorry
And I’m pairing it up with my other latest obession. Thai food. Guys, I love love love love love Thai food.
My go to order? Pineapple Fried Rice to split for an app. Thai Iced Tea. Chicken Pad See Ew (make it spicy). Side of coconut rice. And once in a while… Sticky Sweet Rice with Thai Custard to split for dessert. Dinner of champions right there. #legit
And yes, there is ususally some leftovers. I’m a fatty, but even I have my limits when it comes to eating capacity.
Did I mention our new home is within 1 mile of this kick butt Thai place? It’s just a coincidence, I promise. I didn’t specifically pick this house because of it’s proximity… or did I? Shhhh, don’t tell Asheley.
Peanut sauce. Great.
Peanut sauce + curry = 🙂 🙂 🙂
If it were socially acceptable to drink the stuff and slap a smoothie label on it, I probably would. Oh please… don’t judge me. You know you would too.
Since I obviously can’t get take-out Thai food every night (or can I?), cooking up a healthy faux version at home is where it’s at…
And with the exception of roasting the spaghetti squash, this meal comes together in under 30 minutes. Boom.
Roasting a spaghetti squash isn’t a ton of work anyway. You literally throw it in the oven and walk away for awhile. Go help your kids with homework.
Do that exercise DVD Eat some leftover Halloween candy. Put on the TV and catch that Law + Order SVU re-run for the 27th time.
Or hey, you could always roast the squash over the weekend, fridge it, and then heat it up right before serving.
One tiny thing… I know some vegetarians are totally fine with fish sauce. If so, rock on. But for my vegetarians out there who can’t eat fish sauce and for all the vegans out there, you can swap out the fish sauce for a homemade version or just find a good substitute (google is telling me that Golden Mountain Sauce or just a bit of soy sauce can both serve as adequate subs).

Can’t get enough Spaghetti Squash?
