This warmly-spiced, simple squash dish is what you want to accompany a fall weeknight dinner.


  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp parsley


  1. Carefully pierce the squash several times with a sharp knife to prevent the squash from bursting in the microwave.
  2. Microwave on high for 16 minutes, turning halfway through. Slice the squash open lengthwise and allow to cool enough to handle.
  3. Using a fork, lift out the seeds and discard. Then scrape out the insides into a medium mixing bowl. Mash and shred until the strands are separated.
  4. Stir the coconut oil, coriander, cumin, salt, turmeric and cayenne into the spaghetti squash. Combine thoroughly, then serve warm and topped with parsley leaves.
