Fuhrman Ratatouille over Spaghetti Squash


Saturday, April 19, 2014



Ratatouille over Spaghetti Squash
www.drfuhrman.com

Serves: 4

Ingredients:
1 medium spaghetti squash
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 medium eggplant, peeled and cubed
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil

1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, no-salt-added or low sodium

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Place both halves upside down on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes or until tender.

2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons water in a large deep skillet. Water saute the onion until softened, about 3 minutes.

3. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, adding more water as necessary to prevent scorching.

4. Reduce heat to low-medium and add the tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, red pepper, mushrooms, oregano and basil.

5. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are very tender, about 1 hour.

6. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

7. When squash is done, remove from oven and using a fork, scrape spaghetti-like strands from the squash onto serving plates.

8. Top with eggplant mixture.

    Sounds yummy! I would add some white beans and perhaps some nutritional yeast.

    I love ratatouille.... I make it thicker like a stew and eat it just like that. I sometimes put lentils or quinoa in for protein and that is my meal.
