Broiled Spaghetti Squash with Walnut Miso Glaze

A rich, tangy glaze elevates this humble squash to a whole new level.

Spaghetti squash has always reminded me of the fall, but wouldn't this make an awesome summer side too? I imagine it pairing incredibly well with grilled Portobello mushrooms and quinoa seasoned with sesame oil.

1 small spaghetti squash, halved and seeded

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1⁄4 cup walnuts
