Thai Spaghetti Squash with Peanut Sauce
This gluten-free, vegan version of peanut noodles has a high protein content thanks to edamame and peanut butter. Spaghetti squash turns delicately sweet when roasted, which pairs wonderfully with the Thai-inspired peanut sauce.
Ingredient Note: Edamame are easy to digest and exceptionally high in protein (1/2 cup has 16 grams). There are several kinds available--frozen and fresh, in the pod and shelled--in large supermarkets, natural-foods stores and Asian markets.
