Water is my “go to” beverage.

Dove is my “go to” deodorant.  (Clinical Strength….because who am I kidding.)

Travis is my “go to” guy.

Toyota is my “go to” car company.  (Even though all I’ve ever owned is Honda.)

And this is my “go to” meal.


I don’t know what you’d call it.  Vegetable mish mash??  Hummus-flavored vegetable “spaghetti”??

I have no clue.

I just call it GOOD!  And it’s so easy that I couldn’t NOT share it.  Five ingredients, 20 minutes from start to finish.


Easy peazy.

…Because who am I kidding.

Actually, The Laughing Cow made it even easier for me this time around.  The company sent me a Mystery Box with a package of their Mini Babybel cheese and asked me to come up with a healthy, holiday dish**!


You’ll see below how I incorporated it, but it was the perfect (easy) addition to this dish. Plus, adding the cheese also provided some extra protein (6 grams for only 50 calories), which I know from experience FILLS ME UP.  Thank you, Laughing Cow!



  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup brussel sprouts
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1 container of hummus (I used Sabra’s Spinach & Artichoke)
  • 1 LC Mini Babybel Cheese

Step-by-step Directions (highlighting my laziness):

Halve spaghetti squash and scoop out all the junk (Lazy Lindsay doesn’t save the seeds.)  Place the spaghetti squash face down in a large microwaveable dish – add about an inch of water.  Cover in plastic wrap.  Microwave squash for approximately 10 minutes (Lazy Lindsay calls microwaving “cooking”.)


Lazy Lindsay does not remove stickers.

While spaghetti squash is baking cooking microwaving, cap and quarter brussel sprouts (Lazy Lindsay uses the baking sheet as a cutting board to avoid doing more dishes).  Spray sprouts with olive oil and season with salt.


BROIL (Lazy Lindsay has no time for slow roasting) brussel sprouts for 7-10 minutes, flipping once or twice.


Once the spaghetti squash has cooked, drain water from dish.  Use a fork to get out the squash “meat”.  Once you’ve done this to half of the spaghetti squash, add spinach and fork out remaining squash on top (Lazy Lindsay uses steam to her advantage, wilting the spinach for free.)



Lazy Lindsay is so freaking lazy that she burns her hands every single time using the “free steam” method.

Add one tub of your favorite hummus and stir everything together.  Plate each serving and top with one Mini Babybel cheese.



So easy, a caveman Lazy Lindsay can do it.

  1. Without spaghetti squash in my life, I would probably DIE! I eat about 2 pounds every night… You may think I am over exaggerating but I am really not… I eat the same dinner almost nightly and I eat more than a family of 5 lol!!!!! At least it’s HEALTHY! :)

  2. This doesn’t look very ‘lazy’ to me! ;)

    My go-to meal is a mini pizza. I use whole-wheat flatbread, topped with marinara sauce, mozz. cheese, turkey pepperoni, and banana peppers. I heat it up in the oven for less than 10 minutes at 400 degrees. So easy and so good!

  3. Thank you for this! Love that I now have 1 idea how to eat that spaghetti squash!
    My go to meal is a Flat Out Lite, spread hummus, a ton of spinach or broccoli slaw and turkey or chicken breast! Roll like a burrito- done!

  4. Yummmm.. I do something similar, but not exactly so. Microwave the squash ( though you don’t need the water!! Just cut in half and place face down on a microwaveable pie plate!!! It still steams itself!!) Add to the top of broccoli slaw and add a thai peanut noodle sauce to the top with some shredded chicken!! I also use the picsweet variety of the steamable brussels sprouts instead of broiling. They take 5 minutes in the microwave and no extra pan to wash!!

  5. That looks super quick & tasty ~ my kind of meal! I also use the “free steam method” & burn my hand every single time! :)

    My go-to is a bowl of quinoa (Lazy Heather uses the rice cooker) topped with veggies (usually steamed, sometimes roasted), drizzled with tahini (because Lazy Heather has never gotten around to making her own IC safe dressing) & hemp hearts. All done! Yummmm

  6. Your mish-mash looks good! My type of meal, for sure.

    My go-to meal is a big bowl full of greens, raw and roasted veggies, topped with whatever protein I can find in the fridge, drizzled with some homemade dressing. Otherwise know as a Hugh Jass Salad. :) Easy and always tasty.
