Singapore Noodle Spaghetti Squash

Move over Cauliflower, Spaghetti Squash might just be the next "super" vegetable in terms of its versatility in the kitchen. 

Spaghetti Squash or Vegetable Spaghetti as it is can be known is a yellow, squash shaped vegetable, with a hard outer skin, that when cooked the flesh becomes stringy like spaghetti.  

Spaghetti Squash is amazing because it covers so many dietary requirements. It is low in Fodmap, makes a great gluten-free pasta replacement and is low in sugars so suitable for diabetics.  It has been totally embraced by the Paleo and Low Carb ways of eating.

You can read more about Spaghetti Squash and how to cook it on a previous blog post here.

It's so versatile you can use it pretty much anywhere you would other noodles. Here's one recipe my family loves.
