Spaghetti Squash Boca Burger Quinoa Stir Fry

Leave a comment

Apparently we’re Boca Burger crazy lately.  Mat made Boca Burger Enchiladas the other day, and now we’re using them to make a stir fry with spaghetti squash.  I thought last night’s spaghetti squash with nutritional yeast would last longer than it did (we only used half of the squash – it doesn’t quite last for 2 people for 2 nights).  Rather than try to freeze the other squash half, we’re inventing tonight.







Spaghetti Squash Boca Burger Quinoa Stir Fry


olive oil

1/4 yellow onion, diced

1 clove shallot, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

crushed red pepper (to taste)

2 Boca Burgers, cooked and cut into bite size pieces

1/2 package frozen spinach, drained

2 cups cooked quinoa

1/3 of half a roasted spaghetti squash

6 eggs, lightly whisked

1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

smoked paprika and cayenne pepper

salt and pepper


  1. Saute onion, shallot, garlic, and crushed red pepper in olive oil until translucent and fragrant.
  2. Add Boca Burgers and sauté for about 5 minutes
  3. Add spinach and sauté 5 minutes more.
  4. Add quinoa, spaghetti squash, eggs and pinto beans and cook through.  Season with smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.

A delicious, protein-packed meal!

We added soy sauce to it when we ate it which worked nicely since it was an egg stir fry.  I can’t believe how much protein is probably in it – eggs, Boca Burgers, quinoa, and beans?  Heck yes!

I’m craving chocolate.  I’ve been craving it all day actually.  And yesterday.  I think it’s because I haven’t slept quite enough lately and whenever that happens I crave sugary food.  It’s that whole appetite hormone thing with grehlin and leptin and all that.  I can’t remember which hormone is which, but I’m pretty sure those are the names.  (Maybe I should find my nutrition book and look that up…)

The rest of the night is all about the tv.  We haven’t sat and watched tv since Friday and it’s been a busy and long few days since then.  Thank goodness it’s barely 8:00!
