Day 2 Recipe to try:
Stuffed spaghetti squash:
1 medium spaghetti squash , halved lengthwise and seeded
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 jalapeño pepper , seeded and minced
1/2 cup celery chopped
1 cup cooked black beans
1/2 cup sweet peas, frozen or fresh
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 cup fresh cilantro , finely chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange squash in a large baking dish, cut-sides down. Pour 1/2 cup water into the dish and bake until just tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Rake with a fork to remove flesh in strands, leaving the shell intact for stuffing.
For the filling, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeño and celery and cook for 2 minutes or until soft. Add beans, peas and chili powder; cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute longer. Add cooked squash, cilantro, vinegar and salt, cook 1 minute until heated through.
Fill squash halves with filling, mounding mixture in the center
