At the point when our companion Jessalyn disclosed to us how flavorful and simple her Mexican Spaghetti Squash Boats were, our ears livened up. Why? The winter squash family has stunning malignancy and infection battling properties!

Winter squash are wealthy in carotenoids, beta-carotene, and alpha-carotene. These carotenoids are phytochemicals that can go about as cancer prevention agents. Carotenoids are significant for resistant capacity and keeping up solid cells, among different jobs.

This is the place cancer prevention agents enter. Cancer prevention agents can give an electron to the free radical basically killing the atom - intending no damage.

This is only one motivation behind why plant nourishments are so defensive against malignancy and different ailments - on the grounds that they contain high measures of cancer prevention agents!

Ingredients  :                                                                 

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • ¾ cup corn (we prefer frozen & organic)
  • 1, 15 ounces can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1, 15 ounces can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
  • 1, 10 ounces can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 lime
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Avocado Oil Spray, optional

Optional Toppings:

  • Avocado
  • Cilantro

Directions :

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. While the oven is preheating, cut your spaghetti squash in half. Once it is cut in half (the hardest part of this recipe!), scoop out the insides. 
  3. Next, make the taco seasoning. Add all taco seasoning ingredients to a small dish and mix together well. Set aside. 
  4. Lightly spray each half of the spaghetti squash with avocado oil spray (optional). Sprinkle 1 teaspoon (total) of the finished taco seasoning on both halves of the spaghetti squash. 
  5. Once the oven is preheated, lay both halves of the squash flat side down on a pan. Bake for approximately 40 minutes, depending on the size of your squash. You know the squash is done with the sides pull away easily from the sides with a fork. 
  6. While the squash is roasting, prepare the insides. Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add the diced onion and saute until soft and translucent, about 6-7 minutes. If the onions begin to stick, add water or vegetable broth 1 tablespoon at a time. (You can view our video here on how to cook onions with this method.)
  7. Add the minced garlic and saute until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 1 minute. Next, add the red pepper, corn, black beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, and the remainder of the taco seasoning. Cook about 8-10 minutes, until the pepper softens. Stirring frequently. 
  8. When the squash is done, scrape the insides of the squash with a fork, creating the “spaghetti”. Add the squash to the cooked insides and stir until well mixed. 
  9. Add the juice of one lime. Taste and season with salt, pepper, or other seasonings if desired. Add a heaping scoop of the prepared inside to each squash boat. Serve with diced avocado, cilantro, and extra lime. Enjoy!
