Simple Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Coconut Oil


When squash is one of the main vegetables you are able to eat due to food allergies and intolerances, you end up eating a lot of it! I have tried so many ways of preparing spaghetti squash — boiling, using an Instant Pot, and roasting — and this version is definitely my favorite.

What are some tasty and easy ways to enjoy the roasted spaghetti squash? I love to mix the coconut oil-infused spaghetti squash with a bit of quinoa for a nutty flavor or simply tossing it with a bit of basil and salt.


The trick to getting longer strands of “spaghetti” is to cut the squash width-wise around the waist.

You will see lots of recipes calling for cutting spaghetti squash length-wise — however this actually reduces the length of the strands so I definitely recommend cutting it across the waist (plus this is a lot easier to do).
