Yeah, making squash again.  This time it’s spaghetti squash.  Not only is it easy to make, it’s delicious and of course is packed with vitamins!

Spaghetti Squash, Kale & Tomato

1 medium spaghetti squash
1/2 onion
1 and 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
2 cups cut up kale, fresh
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup daiya cheese or dairy cheese if you can
1 and 1/2 tsp salt & pepper, more to taste

Carefully cut open spaghetti squash & clean out seeds.  Put on a steamer tray in pot w/some water & put a lid on the pot (or you can roast) until a fork is able to go through (may take up to 30-40 minutes). In the mean time, while squash is cooking, chop up the onion, add 4 tbsp of olive oil, saute on medium heat. When onion becomes clear, add your cherry tomatoes.  Stir and add salt and pepper.  When tomatoes start to get soft, squish some of them down to get the juice out. Leave some tomatoes whole though.  Let all combine for maybe 10 min. and lower the heat down. Add Kale and the remainder of the olive oil.  When the Kale starts to cook down (just a few minutes), lower heat all the way to a simmer.  When the squash is done and cool enough to handle, take a fork and scrape in a downward motion to get spaghetti like strands.  Transfer all spaghetti squash into a bowl and combine the kale and tomato mixture.  Top w/ daiya cheese, more salt and pepper to taste and even some olive oil and serve.

Be Well,

Jennifer Esposito

      I have been following your blog since I was diangosed with Celiac disease about 4 moths ago. You truly are an inspiration. Whenever in having a moment of weakness or just getting down on myself for feeling different or missing out, your site reminds me otherwise! I would love to support the awareness by wearing an awesome shirt and Inspiron others to do the same. Thank you for EVERYTHING & I look forward to all your future posts. (You’ve even inspired me to start a blog of my own; complete with recipes, journal logs, pictures and keeping the community current in Charlotte. THANK YOU!!

    Thank you, thank you so much for sharing your experience! My son is only 20 months old and we have had the hardest time with his allergies & eczema. He is allergic/sensitive to almost everything from bananas to mold. It took me going to a nutritionist & chiropractor to finally figure out he has a leaky gut problem. We are working on healing him from the inside using fish oil & flax oil and several other things. My husband and I have felt so alone trying to deal with this, but we are not. Thank you so much! God Bless!

    This truly is one of the best recipes i’ve tried in a while. So simple, yet it has an abundance of flavour. I left out the chesse/cheese alternative and it was still very good. Super easy to make and with easy to find ingredients. thank you Jennifer for all of your hard work and sharing so much of yourself with others. It is greatly appreciated :-)

      To spread the word about cialec awareness day, I will be posting on all of my social media outlets (where else could I reach THAT many people?). I have a full day of work but my pantry is down to every last gf crumb. Tonight I will be making a trip to whole foods, and then with my little bit of energy left, enjoying some gf hot wings! Hoping to get my non gf bf to cook. He’s extremely cautious with cc. I’m lucky I trust him in the kitchen with my food.
