📝 SPAGHETTI SQUASH ALFREDO | Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash
option for making this without the Instant Pot is included.
makes 2 servings

1 medium spaghetti squash
1/4 cup white wine or veggie broth
2 shallots, diced
10 oz baby bella mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 cup plain unsweetened soy milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Cut the spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise, then remove the seeds with a spoon.
Turn on the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of water, and place the steam grate at the bottom of the pot.
Place the spaghetti squash into the Instant Pot, and tighten the lid. Make sure the release valve is sealed.
You’ve already set the Instant Pot to 10 minutes. It will begin to cook once the pressure has built.
Quick release once the timer goes off.
Once cool enough to handle, use a fork to remove the spaghetti like strands.
(If you are not using an Instant Pot you can steam the squash in a steam basket on the stove for about 20 minutes. Alternatively, you could roast the cut squash on 350° for about 45 minutes).

Once the squash is out of the Instant Pot and cooling down, make your sauce.
Pour the wine into a skillet, and bring it to a simmer on medium heat.
Add the shallots, and sauté in the wine until tender.
Add the mushrooms, and a pinch of salt. Cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 8 minutes.
Pour the soy milk into a small bowl, and add the arrowroot powder. Stir well to break up any clumps.
Pour it over the mushrooms, and immediately add the nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon juice, and salt.
Stir it all together on medium-low heat as the sauce thickens. Season to taste with more lemon or salt.

Place the squash noodles into the alfredo sauce and stir well. If it has thickened before you have a chance to add the squash, add more soy milk to thin.

Serve with red chili flakes, black pepper, and fresh parsley.

  1. I don’t have an Instant Pot just yet, but it does seem like a very practical purchase especially for Vegans. Oh and by the way, I went to an Easter Lunch yesterday and I made THREE of your recipes. I made Spicy “Chicken” Fried Cauliflower, Rainbow Root Cole Slaw and your Purple and White Potato Salad only I ended up using red potatoes and Yukons with the skins on which made it look very rustic and homemade-y. They were all big hits, the Cauliflower being the favorite. Quick question, the potato salad says 2 tablespoons of Ume Plum Vinegar. I quadrupled your recipe which mean 8 TBSPs. When I tasted the dressing, it was super salty so what I ended up doing was draining off the dressing to save the shallots and dill and I started over eliminating the Ume plum vinegar and I just added a little relish in with the Vegan Mayo and Dijon. I’m just curious, did you mean 2 TBSPs? Maybe if I had let it soak in it would have been fine, but since it was for a party I couldn’t take the risk. Anyway, all in all, the recipes were AWESOME and I’m so appreciative of your southern influenced recipes.

  2. I bought an insta pot last year and love it. You have to try making yogurt! There’s vegan cultures on Amazon, just add it to regular soy milk (make sure the ingredients are just soy and water, the shelf stable ones are best). I cook it for 18 hours so it gets really thick, like Greek yogurt. Then you can make a great parfait, yogurt sauce for curry, or a add it into muffins for a really moist baked good!

  3. I make lentil soup with carrots and celery in my instant pot…love …love lentils…today I made Dal in my instant pot. I use it everyday since I eat beans almost daily. …and you can make steel cut oatmeal in it…but I cook it in a microwave safe bowl with the rack and water for 7 minutes. Grits the same way 7 minutes.
