Spaghetti Squash with Dukkah
“In this easy vegetable side dish, dukkah (pronounced dOO-kah), a blend of pulverized toasted nuts and crushed sesame, coriander and cumin seeds, seasons spaghetti squash. Look for premade dukkah online, at well-stocked stores or find a recipe at eatingwell.com.”
1 large spaghetti squash (about 3½ pounds), halved lengthwise and seeded
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
4 cloves garlic
½ cup water
⅔ cup dukkah, divided
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1Preheat oven to 425°F.
2Drizzle each squash half with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the squash cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet and tuck 2 garlic cloves under each half. Add water to the pan. Roast until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.
3Turn the squash cut-side up and gently smear with the softened garlic. Let cool for 10 minutes. Using a fork, scrape the flesh into a large bowl. Toss with ½ cup dukkah and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Serve topped with the remaining dukkah and cilantro.
