4Add garlic, onion, carrots, zucchini, tomato paste, cumin, paprika and turmeric to a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened and fragrant.
5Add canned chopped tomatoes, chickpeas, nutritional yeast, and tamari. Cook, stirring frequently, for a further 10 minutes. Taste and season with extra salt if necessary.
6Remove the spaghetti squash from the oven, and scrape it using a fork to make the 'spaghetti' strands.
7Distribute the filling evenly between the two halves of the squash, and sprinkle with cheese of your choice. Bake for another 5-10 minutes,

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
