Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°F.

Rub spaghetti squash with oil and toss carrots in oil. Place squash face down on a baking sheet, arrange carrots around it and sprinkle with some salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until spaghetti squash is tender. Remove from oven and let rest.
Step 3
In the meantime, bring 1½ cups water to a boil in a small saucepan and add lentils. Turn heat to low and simmer for 15-18 minutes, then strain and reserve.
Step 4
In a separate pot, bring 3 cups of stock to a boil and add lemongrass, ginger, garlic, turmeric, sugar, chili and season with salt and pepper. Turn to low and cover. Let simmer for 25-30 minutes, then strain out aromatics and return stock to the stove.
Step 5
Brew tea in 2 cups hot water for 5 minutes and strain into stock. Add lemon juice, fish sauce, soy sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 6
Using a fork, shred the spaghetti squash and discard skin. In 3-4 medium bowls, divide squash, carrots, lentils and spinach evenly.
Step 7
Pour in stock and sprinkle with coriander. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
