Spaghetti Squash filled with Pesto Chicken & Veggies

Recipe of the Day


••
Ingredients:
2 medium Spaghetti Squash
2 organic Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup Pesto
1-2 cups Baby Spinach
1 XL Carrot 🥕
1 medium Red Bell Pepper 🌶
Salt & Pepper*
8oz Shredded Cheese 🧀
2 tbsp Parsley
Olive Oil for cooking

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. For easy cutting if you don’t have sharp kitchen knives, pop each squash in the microwave for 5 minutes to soften it up. The knife will cut completely through easier this way.
  3. Next grab a baking sheet or baking dish with sides so that the juices don’t run into your oven.
  4. To prevent sticking, rub the cut side of the squash with a small amount of olive oil. Salt and pepper both sides generously.
  5. Place inside a baking dish or lined baking sheet and bake face-down for 30-40 minutes, or until tender and easily pierced with a fork.
  6. While the squash is baking, cook chicken completely either on stove-top or grill. Whichever you prefer. I always season well with salt and pepper.
  7. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and toss with pesto.
  8. Set aside.
  9. In a medium-size pan, heat a little olive oil or coconut oil to medium-high heat and sauté your bell pepper and carrot for 3-5 minutes. Next add the spinach and pesto chicken and stir to wilt the spinach.
  10. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Next add your cheese to the hot mixture. Mix about ¾ of the cheese in with the chicken and veggies and save the rest for topping.
  12. Fluff your squash with a fork before stirring in the chicken and veggie mixture.
  13. Top with the rest of your grated cheese and cover the baking dish in foil, leaving a little room at the top (triangle shape) so the cheese doesn’t stick.
  14. Bake at 350 degrees F for around 20-30 minutes or until bubbling.
  15. Garnish with fresh parsley, extra cheese, and enjoy!

Recipe of the Day: No Salt Egg Bagels!

Yields 15
Ingredients:
1 medium Potato 🥔
2 cups Water 💧
2 1/4 tsp dry active yeast
1 tbsp Honey
4 cups Flour
2 eggs 🥚🍳
3 tbsp Veggie Oil
3 quarts Water 💧
Poppy Seeds/Sesame Seeds for glaze

Our Everything Bagel Seasoning Blend (w/o Salt) would really compliment this recipe !

DIRECTIONS

Peel the potato and slice thickly. Place slices into a medium saucepan, add 2 cups water and place over high heat to boil. Once boiling, reduce heat slightly and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and drain, RESERVING 1 CUP of the liquid for the dough. Set liquid aside to cool to about 90 degrees. Potato slices will not be used in the dough; discard or consume, your choice.

Proof yeast in a small bowl with 1/2 cup of the potato water and 1/2 teaspoon of the honey. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir the yeast mixture into the flour, along with the whole egg, egg white, the remaining 1/2 cup of potato water, remaining honey, and vegtable oil. Blend to make a firm dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead about 8 minutes, until dough springs back when touched. Place dough in an oiled bowl, coat top with a small amount of oil to keep it from drying out, and cover. Place bowl in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Dough will be ready when you push down with 2 fingers and the indentations remain. If they spring back, let it rise a bit longer.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a large baking sheet and set aside.

Boil the 3 quarts of water in a large pot.

Turn the dough out onto your work surface. Punch down the dough and knead 2-3 minutes. Cut dough into 15 equal portions. Roll each piece between floured hands until it is about 7 inches in length and 3/4 inch thick. Coil each length into a ring, moistening the ends with water and pressing firmly so that they stick together firmly (otherwise they will come apart when boiled). Let the rings stand about 10 minutes on an oiled board or pan.

Using a slotted spoon, slide each bagel into the pot of boiling water, being careful not to crowd them too much. They will float. Boil 2 minutes per side. Remove with the slotted spoon and place them on the oiled baking sheet. They will be very slippery.

Mix the remaining egg yolk with 1 teaspoon water and glaze each bagel with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds, if desired. Place sheet on middle rack in oven and bake 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and place bagels on wire rack to cool. Bagels taste best the same day as baking, so if you do not plan on eating them all the same day, after cooling freeze leftovers for later consumption.
