Mushroom Stuffed Spaghetti Squash | GF, Vegan

Oven roasted spaghetti squash stuffed with sauteed mushrooms in a creamy cashew sauce. This is a vegan and gluten free dish.

Creamy cashew sauce with mushrooms

Vegan cashew cream is very quick to make, but remember to soak the raw cashews a couple of hours before making the dish (or overnight). Then you simply have to mix everything together in a blender until smooth.

Remove dirt from mushrooms by either brushing them with a dry cloth or peeling them. Don’t soak mushrooms because they’re going to absorb the water, and therefore get soggy.

To saute mushrooms, heat up a frying pan on medium heat with olive oil. Cook the mushrooms for a few minutes until all the water is evaporated, let caramelize, and deglaze with wine.

If you don’t want to use liquor in your dish, it can be replaced by balsamic vinegar or soy sauce (not gluten free).

Mix the cashew cream with the mushrooms and season to taste. Keep warm until the spaghetti squash is ready.

Roasted spaghetti squash

Roasting spaghetti squash is easy, the most complicated part is to cut it if you ask me!

Rinse and dry, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes upside down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, in the preheated oven at 400°F.

Once cooked, allow to cool down for 10 minutes before scraping over a bowl with a fork to form spaghetti. Mix in the creamy mushrooms and put everything back into the empty shells. Add a bit of vegan shredded cheese on top if you like and broil for a few minutes in the oven.
