Tips

You can also make the sauce in a crock pot-- just dump all veg and everything but peanut butter and lime (and garnishes) in a crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours. Add peanut butter just before serving.

NOTE: you may need to use 2 cans of coconut milk if going the crock pot route, just to have enough liquid for all the veg.


Directions

heat oven to 350. poke spaghetti squash with a knife, place whole squash in oven, cook for 45 minutes, turn 1/4 turn, and cook for another 30 minutes.

Take out of oven and set aside to cool.

heat olive oil in saute pan. add 2 T chopped garlic and onions. When onions are soft, add broccoli, carrots and edamame and saute until cooked to your liking (soft and mushy= longer)

In a saucepan, combine coconut milk, vinegar, ginger, sugar, red pepper flakes, and soy sauce.Stir over medium heat until all combined. Just before serving, add peanut butter and lime juice.

cut open spaghetti squash and discard seeds. Plate spaghetti squash, add sauteed veggies on top and pour peanut sauce over top, garnish with chopped peanuts, scallions, and bean sprouts with a lime wedge.
