Vegan Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats

December 1, 2020
I don't know if there's Lidl in your country, but here in Hungary I love that they have thematic sales every week. When Italian week arrives I always stack up on every kind of tomato sauce: plain, or with garlic, herbs, basil, Arrabbiata, with chilies, onion... I can't even list how many kind of sauces they have! I love to make a good homemade sauce as well, but canned sauces last the longest so when I am out of homemade sauce (following the recipe of ma great-grandma) I reach out to these wonderful canned versions from Lidl. (Not an advertisement, haha)

I used the herbed sauce for this recipe but if you can't get your hands on it, just use any kind of roasted tomato sauce and mix it with your own herbs.

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.

2. Using a sharp knife, slice the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on each half of squash, then place face up on a baking sheet. Roast for 30-45 minutes, then test squash with a fork. If it appears strand-like and is easily pulled out it means the squash is done.

3. While squash is roasting, prepare your sauces. If you don’t have herbed tomato sauce, then mix dried herbs, salt and pepper in your tomato sauce according to your taste.

4. In a bowl, mix together vegan sour cream with lemon juice, pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder, taste and adjust seasoning to your like.

5. When squash are finished roasting, turn off your oven and let the squash cool for a few minutes. Carefully scrape out the insides of the squash with a fork, maintaining the shell (as this will be the boat we stuff).

6. In layers, begin adding spaghetti squash strands, tomato sauce, and sour cream. Fill the boats to the top, and make  the last layer  the shredded vegan cheese. Broil for 5-10 minutes until cheese is golden brown.

7. Garnish with optional fresh herbs and enjoy!
