I know I get overly excited sometimes about a new recipe and tend to go on and on... and on.... about how amazing it is.
Yes... you guessed it. This is one of those times.
**insert excited squeal and clapping of hands here**
This is AMAZEBALLS!
*whispering* Guys, it tastes EXACTLY like chow mein with real noodles.
Not even lying.
You could totally fool people with this. It even looks like chow mein.
Look at the photos....
Totally thought it was noodles, right?
This is definitely becoming part of my regular dinner menu. It is unbelievably easy, ridiculously tasty, and crazy healthy.
According to Myfitness pal, one serving is: 114 calories, 3 fat, 20 carbs, 4 fiber and 3 protein.
The entire recipe makes 6 servings so the 114 calories if for a HUMONGOUS serving!
You need this in your life.
Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger, freshly grated
1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 Tbsp white wine
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 purple onion, chopped
2 green onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 cup snow peas, broken into 1 inch pieces
5 button mushrooms, sliced
1 bag coleslaw mix (approx 3 - 4 cups)
1 cup bean sprouts
1 large spaghetti squash, cooked (yield approx 6 cups shredded)
In a small bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients until well mixed. Set aside.
Heat a large wok (or pot) over medium/high heat. Add in sesame oil.
When oil is crackling, throw in the garlic.
Stir for 30 seconds.
Add in onions, celery, snow peas, and mushrooms, Cook and stir until mushrooms soften, about 2 - 3 minutes.
Next, add in the cole slaw mix and bean sprouts.
Cook and stir until well mixed in and cabbage has started to wilt - another 2 - 3 minutes.
Lastly, add in the shredded spaghetti squash and sauce.
Stir very well - until sauce coats everything evenly and squash is heated through.
Leftovers the next day are just as good..... if you actually have any leftovers. *Ha*
I wanted to make this vegan so I left out any meat but next time I am definitely going to add some chicken or shrimp.
Definitely is my new favorite thing right now.
Why aren't you making this right now?
