Spaghetti Squash with Cauliflower-Cashew Ricotta

Total time: 20 minutes + 45 minutes baking time (passive)

Serves: 3-4


1 spaghetti squash

Cauliflower-Cashew Ricotta
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup raw cashews (soaked 4-6 hours or overnight)
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic
4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 small head cauliflower, chopped into small florets (should yield about 6 cups)


1. Preheat oven to 375º.
2. Using a large, sharp knife, cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out seeds and discard them. Lay spaghetti squash halves face down in a baking pan with 1 inch of water. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a fork sticks through squash with no resistance.
3. For the ricotta, add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, adding the cauliflower last. Blend until smooth, light and fluffy. Use tamper if using a Vitamix blender.
Note: If using a standard blender, consider steaming the cauliflower first.
4. When squash is baked, let cool. Using a fork, scrape lengthwise to make “spaghetti”.
5. Top with ricotta and serve immediately.
