Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Serves 4-6

-3 small spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped out
-2 medium heads of garlic, top 1/3 cut off
-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
-2 medium celery ribs, sliced
-3 medium carrots, sliced
-1 medium white onion, diced
-1 medium green bell pepper, diced
-One 8-ounce package cremini mushrooms, sliced
-One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
-One 14.5-ounce can crushed tomatoes
-One 15-ounce can cannellini beans with liquid
-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
-1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or Bragg Organic Sprinkle
-1 tablespoon champagne vinegar or red wine vinegar
-Chopped parsley and No Harm Parm (recipe below), to garnish

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

2. Place the spaghetti squash and the garlic, cut side up, on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.

3. Bake for 30 minutes, during which time you may make the sauce.

4. Place the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the celery, carrots, and onion and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

5. Stir in the bell pepper, mushrooms, diced and crushed tomatoes, beans, crushed red pepper, Italian seasoning, and vinegar until the mixture heats through.

6. Once the spaghetti squash and garlic are baked, hold the hot squash with tongs and carefully scrape the flesh away from the skin to form a mound, keeping the skin intact.

7. Divide the sauce among the cooked squash in the skins. Really pile it on!

8. Serve warm, garnished with parsley, No Harm Parm, and some roasted garlic cloves.

No Harm Parm Topping
-1/2 cup hemp hearts
-1/2 cup nutritional yeast
-1 teaspoon sea salt, crushed
-1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic
-Zest of 1 medium lemon
