thenutritionator: maryrambin: Delicious Dish — Super Simple Spaghetti Squash


On Tuesday night, when I asked Lev to pick up butternut squash, she came home with spaghetti squash.  Totally a mistake I would have made too!
Without hesitation, Ness (aka chef Schnarf) was able to cook it right up.  And we were pleasantly surprised to see that it actually looks and tastes like spaghetti.  (I know, I know, but neither Leven or I grew up around a lot of veggies.)
Here’s how Ness did it:
Preheat oven to 375.
Cut it in half length wise (You need a big sharp knife).
Scrape out the seeds
Cover a cookie sheet in foil.
Place squash rind up on sheet.
Cook for 40 minutes or until tender.
Take a fork and pull squash from stem to bottom.
Season, mix with veggies, apply sauce, do whatever your little heart desires.
You can put it in the microwave too and just heat that baby up until it’s tender. (Photo via)

Please welcome the Chief Heartlighter of Plantfolk, Inspired Sis, to Otherbox

She is a whisperer of trees, sprinkling stardust over rainbow pigments, infusing canvas with meta-code for heart waking.

She bedazzles chlorophyllic-form arranged in scrumptious green bouquets on plates, and kisses the sunbeam-swollen leaf.

It’s said the Motherland fae watch over her, and leave anonymous gifts for her keep. Only she can confirm that, of course. We’re just glad she’s among us <3

Pastry Pockets for those long drifty nights in the Aether

Not much in the mood to spend hours in the ship-kitchen this evening? Do not despair.Delightfully scrumptious meals can be created easefully during those evenings of sullen mood, when preparing several sides and one main dish proves too cumbersome for spent energies. I bring to your attention, Pastry pockets. These half-moon pastries are filling, scintillating, and quite respectful of time. You can fill them will just about any veggie, garlic-sauteed bean, cheez, or etc, and even create sauces on the side for dipping when the mood strikes. Ingredients are highlit below in the instructions:

Begin by mixing 2 parts flour to 1/4 part water and 1/4 part oil until the mixture forms a nice dough consistency. When the the dough is formed to your liking, lay it out until it’s reasonably thin with a rolling pin. In a situation of lacking resources, a bottle will do. At this point you can use a large mug or goblet to cut circles into the dough. Set the circles aside and roll them thin. Fill them with your sauteed onions, mushrooms, blackbeans, cheez, bits of spinach, or other desired fillings (lightly seasoned and boiled tomato sauce can make a lovely red sauce, as can melted cheez, or other for dipping) . When they are filled ( take care to avoid over-filling them) fold the circles into half-moons with a fork pressed at the edges of the pastry, creating binding hashmarks to close them. When you’re sure the half moons are securely closed (you may have to fold over the edges and then press the fork to the edges for extra measure), you are ready to cook them.
If you wish to bake your pastries set your oven to 350. If you wish to fry you can do so in low oil, or deep fry in 4-5 cups of oil (for about 2-3 minutes each on medium heat).
The results are stupendous! These lovely stuffed half-moons have been known to lift the heavy moods of shipmates when adventures have taken a dismal turn.

Bonus Treat:
Pastry pockets are well complemented by iced drinks!
To make your own blend 6-12 ice cubes, 2-3 cups of your desired fruit, soy or rice milk, w/ organic sugar (to desired sweetness) for drinks that will make happy all around ;D
