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.
…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!
LINDSAY’S GO-TO MEAL THAT HAS NO NAME
- 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.
