I love Asian inspired dishes. They are sweet, salty, tangy and delicious. I do not love all the preservatives, MSG and other gross things hiding in most soy sauces in the grocery store. SO! I have a clean version for you that won’t break the bank to make.
Let’s talk about coconut aminos. It is the sap from coconut palms. After the sap ferments, salt gets added; this process gives the coconut aminos a very similar profile to soy sauce. BUT there has 73% less sodium than most soy sauce. Not to mention, the amino acids and B vitamins that are packed into the sap. Overall, it is a great replacement for soy sauce.
- Spaghetti Squash
- Red Bell Pepper
- Yellow Bell Pepper
- 3 tbsp coconut aminos (or a clean soy sauce)
- 1/2 tsp agave nectar
- 1/2 tsp chili paste
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1 1/2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (omit if you want non-spicy)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Roast spaghetti squash for 45-55 minutes or until fork tender.
- Mice garlic. Dice carrots, peppers, onion, and peas.
- Over Medium-High heat, saute vegetables for 5-7 minutes.
- Pull spaghetti squash out of oven, mix in vegetables and dressing.
This is such an easy dinner; it is perfect for a week night meal. I hope you enjoy it!
