Easy Vegan BBQ Sandwich

BBQ spaghetti squash

This recipe has three ingredients: spaghetti squash, bottled organic BBQ sauce and a bun. It is a healthy meal that is perfect for a school/work night. You can pop the squash in the oven and tend to things around the house while it cooks.

Preheat the oven to 375. Cut a spaghetti squash in half length-wise and scoop the seeds out.

Roast the squash halves in the oven for about 40 minutes or until it is tender. I like to squish the skin with an oven mitt and if the middle pushes out into “spaghetti strips” you know it’s ready.

Let it cool for a few minutes before you attempt to scrape the insides out. It will still be hot so use an oven mitt. Take a fork and work the strands of squash out into a bowl or colander.

Blot with paper towels to remove the excess water that naturally arises from cooking the squash.

Place the spaghetti squash and bottled organic barbecue sauce in a pot on the stove. I like Annie’s original flavored. Put just enough sauce to coat the squash, stir until sauce is heated. Annie's BBQ sauce

Toast some Ezekiel buns and top with your favorite BBQ condiments. I like caramelized onions and jalapenos.
