Welcome to the new layout! This has been such a lovely slow and rainy Sunday. I’ve pretty much spend my day drawing small doodles as the fork, rolling pin and apple, googling around for tips on how to change fonts (that’s insanely hard for the record), making grafics, image mapping, font searching etc. etc. Well except for the time I spend running a half marathon with my dad (I actually made a new PR when it comes to distance, since we accidentally ran a little too far – 22,2km instead of 21.1, haha). I’m pretty pleased with the outcome actually. And a little proud – it’s the first time I’ve ever done serious CSS-coding.

Okay seriously what’s happening? Worpress just delieted half of my post again (yep I also wrote this in Spaghetti Squash volumne 2). And I even wrote and saved the last part first. WTF!

 

Now I’m at it – how does the headlines look to you. I littteraly spend hours trying to figure out how to change fonts and I was so happy when I fonally succeeded and all of the headlines suddenlt had this cool type-writer-like font. But then I checked the layout on my iPad and all of the cool headlines were suddently written with this awful curse kind of font. I really hope this only goes for iPads. The layout is super cool on my computer.

Total change of subject… As my Instagram account might reveal, I’ve been making a lot of warm and cozy comfort food during the last week. Big bowls of zoatmeal, beet oatmeal (! – what’s that even called btw… boatmeal, beetmeal, beoatmeal…), mashed cauliflower puree, cinnamon wreaths… I’m so ready for fall. Last Tuesday I posted a picture of this lovely dish: spaghetti squas aith roasted cauliflower, sage and hazelnut sauce. I bought the zuchinni at the local market last Sunday. It was an elderly lady who had the booth, and she sold all these lovely kinds of zucchinis and pumpkins. Wonderful! Local produce just tastes better than usual.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH WITH ROASTED SAGE, HAZELNUT & CAULIFLOWER SAUCE

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 2 big servings (or 3 small)

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • ½ cup hazelnuts
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. dried sage
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C.
  2. Slice the zucchini squash into 1 inch thick slices, scrape out the seeds and place them on a baking tray with non-stick paper. Bake for 30 minutes (or until the slices are soft). Then take out of the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Once cool scrape out the spaghetti using a fork.
  3. Meanwhile roast the hazelnuts. Place them on a baking tray with non-stick paper and roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until they smell nice. This can be done in the same oven as the zucchini squash, while the squah is cooking. Alow to cool and then rub off the skin with your fingers.
  4. Cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces and chop the garlic finely.
  5. Heat up the oil in a pot and fry the cauliflower, garlic and sage in it for 5 minutes. Then add on the vegetable stock and boil for 10-15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.
  6. Blend the sauce together with half of the hazelnuts either in a blender/ food processor or using an immersion blender. Transfer back into the pot and allow thickening a bit. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Pour the sauce over the spaghetti and top with the remaining hazelnuts. Serve right away!

  1. This spaghetti looks delicious.. loving your photography and presentation too!

  2. Oh … mmmh. This is right up my alley so if I’m able to locate some spaghetti squash I’ll give it a try. Your recipe looks so simple – which I like because recipes with mile-long ingredient lists make me click away – yet absolutely delicious.
    Just as a heads-up [not like I never had any typos in my posts]: in the instructions it says zucchini instead of spaghetti squash.

    I’ve never tried spaghetti squash, simply because I’ve never seen it for sale in London! Been dying to try it! Looks so so yummy.
