Creamy Squash Mac and Cheese

Wow it’s already the last week of January! This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was a creamy one. This is the Creamy Squash Mac and Cheese with Hot Sauce Bread Crumbs. As you know, this cookbook is vegan, so there was no cheese or milk in the pasta dish. The sauce was made by blending up…

Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Is it possible to go wrong with pizza? It’s such a good meal and love mixing up the toppings all the time. Not only can you switch up the toppings, you can do the same for the crust! I’ve tried cauliflower crust before which worked out relatively well. But today, I tried something that I…

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Happy October! I know fall technically starts September 21 but I feel like once we get to October, that’s when it really sets in. So in honour of that, I made a recipe using a fall-ey ingredient – squash! To be more specific, I used spaghetti squash, which is one of my faves. Not only…

Recipe #76: Butternut Squash Chipotle Chili

I hope you’re enjoying all my posts so far this week. I’m keeping the momentum going with this really good veggie chili. This is a nice mexican inspired dish that is perfect for dinner any night. It has chipotle in adobo sauce which gives a some smokey flavour and touch of spice. It’s also loaded…

Cheesy Kale & Spaghetti Squash Casserole

I had this spaghetti squash for a little while and didn’t know what to do with it. I finally looked up some recipes and stumbled upon this one from Kalyn’s Kitchen (link here). It combined cooked squash with kale and lots of cheese, then baked in a hot oven. I didn’t think it could be…

Recipe #57: Silky Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

This was a darn good butternut squash soup. I didn’t add any cream at the end and I don’t even think you’d need it. When you blend the soup, the squash and beans make it really creamy and rich, so you don’t need to add the extra fat and calories. Speaking of the beans though,…

Recipe #33: Roasted Squash and Ricotta Stuffed Shells

This honestly might be one of my favourite recipes to date. I will say that there were a few steps involved in this dish, but the result was worth it, in my opinion. I did make it a touch easier for me though because I used canned pumpkin (1 cup) instead of roasting and mashing…

Recipe #16: Roasted Acorn Squash

Squash season is upon us so the timing of this recipe was perfect. I love all kinds of squash and I’m really loving acorn squash specifically because it’s so tasty and you can eat the skin! I also love the squash because it looks so pretty when sliced this way. This roasted squash was a…

Recipe #2: Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash

This was a super yummy dinner and surprisingly quite filling. This recipe basically has 2 parts to it – sweet roasted squash and moroccan spiced quinoa. I used slightly smaller acorn squashes than the recipe called for which meant it had less cooking time in the oven. I also used garam masala instead of cinnamon…

Thai Spaghetti Squash Bowl

This was a pretty guilt free dinner and it was super colourful (it was brighter before I doused it in delicious peanut sauce but still, the colours were there haha). So on the bottom there is a mix of ramen noodles, spaghetti squash and romaine lettuce. Then on top of that, there’s carrots, cucumber, chickpeas…
