Toppings of choice!

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake spaghetti squash, face down on a baking sheet, for 30-45 minutes.

Step 2: Sautè onions, peppers, carrots, and garlic in a little olive oil over medium heat until all are starting to brown. Add tomatoes, peas, and water. 

Step 3: Bring to a simmer, reduce to medium-low and let it all soak up.

Step 4: Wisk together sauce ingredients. Add to pan with tempeh and stir to combine. Let reduce and thicken. 

Step 5: Remove spaghetti squash from oven. Use a fork to pull the squash from the skin. 

Step 6: Place squash on plate then top with sloppy joe mixture. I topped with Colby Jack shreds! You can try it with your favorite toppings such as avocado, hot sauce, etc.
