Butternut Squash: Butternut squash is high in potassium which actually can help keep your blood pressure in check. Managing your blood pressure can help reduce your risk of heart disease. 

Red Kidney Beans: I’ve used kidney beans as the protein source in this vegan spaghetti squash recipe. However, you can swap these beans out for any beans you have in your pantry. 

How to make marinara spaghetti squash: 

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Cut your squash length wise and place onto a pan or baking sheet lined with parchment paper/rubbed with 1 tbsp EVOO. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  3. In the mean time place all the ingredients for your marinara sauce into a high speed blender and pulse till smooth and creamy like texture.
  4. Transfer your marina sauce into a pan or pot. Bring mixture to a boil, add your can of beans and simmer on low heat for around 20 minutes. Make sure to stir to avoid sticking.
  5. Once your squash is cooked remove from oven, use a fork to create the spaghetti from the squash and stuff with your amazing sauce!
  6. Serve with fresh herbs and plant based cheese (plant based is optional).

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

Beans: Swap these out for chickpeas, black beans, or whatever your favorite beans are!

Can I use a jarred marinara sauce? Definitely! I find it hard to find jarred sauces that don’t have a ton of weird ingredients and preservatives in them, but you can for sure not do the homemade sauce.
