Spaghetti Squash Satay

Spaghetti Squash Satay

Tried a new sauce for lunch today:  Trader Joe's Satay Peanut Sauce - yum!  A little goes a long way, which is good because a serving size is only 1 Tbsp, containing: 25 calories, 1g protein, 1g carbs, 95mg sodium, and 2g fat from the coconut.

BUT its loaded with flavor and am glad I tried it.  I have been making my own Satay sauces through the years, but it's so convenient to have a jar ready to go for those moments when you don't have the extra energy or time, which is me on most days!

I threw together this lunch swiftly and it totally satisfied :)  Am throwing it into the rotation for sure; here is the recipe:


Spaghetti Squash Satay Recipe:

1 cup cooked Spaghetti Squash - a whopping 31 calories!!  (recipe below)
1 cup precooked Veggies (I used my My New Fav Veggie Mix)
1/2 cup Beans (I used a mixture of Chick Peas & Kidney Beans)
1 Tbsp Satay Peanut Sauce, drizzled on top

Simply layer each ingredient on a plate in the order listed.  I enjoyed mine cold, but you could microwave it to heat it up.  Enjoy!



How to Cook Spaghetti Squash quickly & easily: 
Rinse Spaghetti Squash and pat dry.  Place on large plate and poke several holes on both sides with a sharp knife.  Microwave at full power for 6 minutes.  Turn over and microwave another 6 minutes.  If it does not feel soft to touch you made need to add a few more minutes.  Let sit for 10 minutes.  Cut lengthwise down the middle and using a fork you pull down creating the spaghetti like strands.
