Hoisin Spaghetti Squash

Inspired by a dish I saw on a fellow blogger’s WIAW post, I decided tonight I would whip up a healthy take on a typically carb-heavy meal.

I started by peeling one carrot and a little less than 1/2 a small zucchini and sautéing the veggies in sesame oil and hoisin sauce. I then added some minced garlic and got busy preparing the spaghetti squash. I take the lazy way out when I’m preparing this veggie by popping it in the microwave for about 8 minutes. Halfway through, I took 1/2 cup of frozen edamame and tossed it in the microwave with the squash. After everything was done, I tossed it together in the zucchini and carrot mixture.

They look and taste just like real noodles! I gobbled down this in 2 seconds and felt absolutely no guilt. What a perfect way to satisfy my bad-for-you cravings! After dinner, I popped open a key lime pie Greek yogurt cup and a handful of trail mix. What a perfect (and healthy) Sunday Funday.
