Ingredients

FOR THE SPAGHETTI SQUASH:

  • 1 small Spaghetti Squash, about 30 ounces or 1.8 lb whole
  • 1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 small Zucchini, diced
  • Half a Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1/4 Red Onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Corn Kernels
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 3/4 cup cooked Black Beans
  • 1/2 cup Salsa
  • 2 ounces Cheese, shredded and divided

Instructions

Cook The Squash:

  1. Adjust the cooking rack in your toaster oven (or oven) to the bottom position and preheat to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with a silicone baking mat.
  2. Use a sharp knife to carefully stab the squash a few times on each side, then microwave 4 to 5 minutes. Watching out for steam, slice the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Rub each half with oil and season well with salt and black pepper. Place squash on the pan and cook until fork tender, about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of your squash.
  4. Remove squash from the oven and cool for at least 5 minutes. Then, scrape a fork along the flesh to create spaghetti-like strands (leave a little behind to keep the ‘bowl’ intact for stuffing later).

Prepare Filling:

  1. While the squash cooks, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, zucchini, bell pepper, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently until the vegetables have softened, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Remove skillet from heat, add black beans and salsa. Stir well, taste, and adjust seasoning as desired.

Assembly:

  1. Add the loose spaghetti strands and half of the cheese to the skillet mixture, stir well. Load up the squash bowls with the filing and top with the remaining cheese.

Bake The Bowls:

  1. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree toaster oven for 10 minutes until warmed through and melty.
  2. Then Broil for 1 to 2 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and browned.
  3. Serve warm with your favorite burrito toppings.

Notes

 

You can store the assembled boats in a covered container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. To reheat, bake at 350 degrees F until warmed through and the cheese is melted, about 25 minutes.
