This spaghetti squash with chickpeas and kale recipe is delicious and vegetarian. Skip out on the parmesan cheese to make it vegan.



  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.

  2. Slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and ribbing. 

  3. Place the spaghetti squash cut side down on the baking sheet and use a fork to poke holes.

  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, add enough olive oil to lightly coat the pan, then add the shallots, the whole garlic clove (we’ll remove it later), rosemary, chile flakes, and pinches of salt and pepper.

  5. Once the shallot starts to soften add the chickpeas and cook for a few minutes until lightly golden brown. If you’re using roasted chickpeas, add them at the end of the recipe instead. Remove the garlic clove, add the kale and lemon juice, and stir.

  6. Once the kale is partially wilted, add the squash strands, the sun-dried tomatoes, a little grated Parmesan, and more salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to incorporate. Remove from heat and top with toasted pine nuts and extra grated cheese.
