Have you ever had Spaghetti Squash? It’s a bright yellow vegetable that kind of looks like a football. When you bake it, it has a stringy consistency like spaghetti. Mum had some growing in her garden, so we took a couple home and experimented. We came up with this Stuffed Spaghetti Squash with Jackfruit Pulled Pork and Cashew Cream!

How amazing is Jackfruit pulled pork? I’ve only experimented with it a few times, but it has the best consistency and is so versatile! So weird that a fruit can have the same texture as chicken or pork!

We marinated our jackfruit overnight, but to make the process quicker you could drain the jackfruit, pat it dry and bake it in the oven for about an hour until it is dried out. After that marinate it for an hour and cook it with the remaining ingredients. It can be a long process to make the jackfruit, but it’s worth it! We’ve got a few more jackfruit recipes up our sleeve – so watch this space!

Instructions
For Marinating the Jackfruit:

For the Spaghetti Squash:
  1. Pierce spaghetti squash with fork all around. Bake in the oven at 180℃ for 1 hour. While this is cooking, prepare the jackfruit. 

To cook the Jackfruit:
  1. Fry the onion for around 5 minutes or until soft. Add the marinated jackfruit and cook for 10 minute, stirring frequently. Blend up the remaining ingredients for the sauce and add this to the pot. Stir through and cook on a low heat for 30 to 40 minutes until cooked through, stirring frequently. Break up the chunky bits of jackfruit with the end of a wooden spoon. 

To make the Cashew Cream:
  1. Blend all ingredients in a magic bullet or nutri bullet until well combined and creamy. Add more water as desired. 

To Assemble:
  1. Take the spaghetti squash out of the oven and let cool for 10 to 20 minutes. Gently cut it in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Fill the gap with the cooked jackfruit, and dollop the cashew cream on top! Garnish with spring onion, parsley, or coriander. Serve with lemon or lime if desired. Enjoy!!
