Bring Korean flavors into your kitchen with this super easy and flavor-packed Healthy Korean Pork Spaghetti Squash Bowl with Kimchi, Avocado, and Gochjang Aioli!
Don't be jealous. I've had off all week. I know. Being a teacher definitely has its perks. It's called vacations.
During this winter break, I have been trying to accomplish a very important mission. Complete the baby registry. I thought it would be easy. Wrong. It's like a billion times harder than doing your bridal registry. Pick the wrong blender... eh, no big deal. It'll break at some point and you get a new one. But pick a wrong product for your baby? Your breathing, living child? The consequences seem a bit more serious.
My Type A personality, which has a predisposition to obsessive researching, was (and still is) a bit overwhelmed. I'm making progress, though. Slowly.
Speaking of being obsessive, I'm currently all about Korean flavors in the kitchen. You remember those Korean Pork Sweet Potato Skins from a few weeks back? Yea, that was only the start of what's coming at you. Next up is this insanely awesome and pretty darn healthy Korean Pork Spaghetti Squash Bowl.
addiction to passion for spaghetti squash is no secret. Case in point? Look at the bottom of this post for some other spaghetti squash recipes I've been whipping up lately 🙂
So let's break down why this creative spaghetti squash recipe is not only #legit but also #healthy.
Side note... my music students no longer know "#" as a pound sign when I'm introducing it as a "sharp" symbol in music. They only know it as a hashtag. Sigh.
So you've got the spaghetti squash. It's a healthier base than noodles or rice, and I personally love the subtle sweetness it has.
Then it's (healthy) flavor time... Kimchi - Avocado - Scallions - Queso Fresco. Of course the Korean Pork. And then... this guilt-free Gochujang Aioli. That's right. Guilt-free. You can slather and drizzle that creamy goodness to your heart's delight.Print
