Thai-Spiced Roasted Spaghetti Squash

This warm squash salad combines spicy, sweet, and sour elements in a fresh balance that enlivens traditional roasted turkey. If your squash is larger, simply increase the sauce elements to compensate. For a harvest-theme presentation, serve the spiced squash in one of the hollowed-out squash halves.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Cut squash in half lengthwise, remove membranes and seeds, brush lightly with olive oil, and place cut-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast for 55–60 minutes, until flesh shreds easily with a fork. Cool slightly, remove flesh into strands with a fork, and set aside.
  2. In a large, deep sauté pan, heat sesame oil over medium-low heat. Add ginger, garlic, coriander, and peppers; sauté until fragrant and tender, 3 minutes. Stir in salt. Add squash threads and toss; add cilantro and toss until well combined. Serve immediately, garnished with peanuts and a squeeze of lime.
