Healthy Korean Pork Spaghetti Squash Bowl

for the Healthy Gochujang Aioli


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half with a large, sharp knife. Remove seeds and stringy guts, and brush the cut sides of the squash with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place spaghetti squash, cut side down, on a baking sheet and roast until tender and easily pierced with a knife, about 45-60 minutes.
  2. To test if your squash is done, scrap the flesh with a fork. If the strands come off easily, it’s done. Let the cooked spaghetti squash cool for about 5 minutes, then scrape all the flesh into a beautiful pile of spaghetti strands. Taste and season with some more Kosher salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Divide spaghetti squash strands among 4 bowls. Top with desired amount of Korean pork, kimchi, and avocado. Sprinkle with scallions and crumbled queso fresco, and drizzle with a good amount of gochujang aioli*. Serve immediately.
