Foodie Friday- Spaghetti Squash Lo Mein

Anyone who knows me, knows I love GOOD food! Food that is not only good for me, but DELICIOUS! Training at the highest level, means I have to fuel my body at the highest level, as well. I love trying new foods and looking up new healthy recipes to try and I do my best to make at least one new thing a week! So, FOODIE FRIDAY is where I will share some of my food adventures... hopefully, they will be delicious... and you can try them, too!

Last weekend, I found a recipe for Spaghetti Squash Lo Mein. This spin on Chinese Lo Mein Noodles was super fun to make and was quite delicious! I recommend trying this one! It did take me about an hour to make... and 5 minutes to EAT though! Haha! I made this for my boyfriend and I, and we both loved it!

If you've never cooked with spaghetti squash before, I highly recommend it! It is super easy and a great replacement for any kind of pasta noodles! 

Here are a few pictures of the process and final outcome:

Here are the ingredients and directions:

1 large spaghetti squash
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 celery stalks, sliced diagonally
2 cups cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)

1. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13x9 dish and pour 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until flesh is tender. Once done, scoop out flesh with a fork so it breaks apart into strings, then set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and ginger, set aside.
3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet (or wok) over medium high heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.
4. Stir in spaghetti squash and soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
5. Serve immediately and enjoy!!

Here is the link to the blog that I found the recipe on:

I did tweak the ingredients a little bit. I skipped the white pepper. And it calls for 3 celery stalks (which I already had chopped up, so I guessed on the amount) and I would personally put a little bit less in for the next time I make it, but it is up to you!

Let me know if you try this recipe, how you put your spin on it and be sure to share some pictures!
Happy Eating!
