Spaghetti Squash Lo-Mein Recipe by Dr. Daryl



You know that one of my favorite things to do is create alkaline, anti-inflammatory versions of beloved take-out dishes. Today, I’ve got another one for you!

This lo-mein utilizes spaghetti squash as the “noodles,” a low-carb hack that you’ve got to try if you haven’t already. It’s super easy to do and tastes delicious, no matter what preparation you choose.

We combine the “noodles” with onion, celery, carrots, and cabbage for a satisfying vegan dinner that you’ll want to make again and again. In our house, we serve it with Braggs Liquid Aminos (or gluten-free tamari) and alkaline hot sauce on the side.

Watch for my blog post on Thursday: 3 Important Nutrients Vegetarians Miss Out On.

Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.


Ingredients [Serves 3]

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free tamari (or Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Coconut Aminos)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced  
  • 2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage (any color)
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots


Cut the spaghetti squash in half-length wise and remove seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13 x 9 pan and pour 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, until flesh is very tender. Once done, scoop out squash with a fork so it breaks apart into “spaghetti”’ and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together tamari, garlic, ginger, and pepper; set aside.

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in cabbage and carrots until heated through, about 1 minute.

Stir in spaghetti squash and tamari mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

GET OFF YOUR SUGAR: Burn the Fat, Crush Your Cravings, and Go From STRESS EATING to STRENGTH EATING removes the guilt and shame many of us feel for our addiction to sugar, and replaces them with a powerful yet easy-to-follow program with practical tips to kick the sugar habit in your real life.

Kelly Ripa, who wrote the Foreword, had this to say:

“I’ve followed Dr. Daryl’s Get Off Your Sugar Program for a little over a year. It’s doable, it’s delicious, and I’ve seen the proof that it works too—last year, when I turned 50, Dr. Daryl tested my biological age, and it showed I had the physical health of a 35 year old. Clearly, we’re doing something right!

“I love how Dr. Daryl focuses on what you need to add to your diet instead of what to take away, but I think what really makes his approach so powerful is that he helps you get off—and stay off—the stress-eating roller coaster.

“I know it’s so hard not to rely on your favorite sweet treats when life gets tough, and it can be difficult to manage everything life throws at you, but hear me out: thanks to Dr. Daryl, you’re holding in your hands a proven strategy and plan that will help you through the tough times. When you strength eat every day, you’re better equipped to handle challenges that arise, whether that’s a global pandemic or something closer to home.” – Kelly Ripa
