Spaghetti Squash Japchae
| SPAGHETTI SQUASH JAPCHAE | 🥡Japchae is a delicious Korean noodle dish usually made with Sweet Potato Starch Noodles. I wanted a low carb option so I experimented with Spaghetti Squash. Whenever I take a friend out for Korean food for the first time, I always make them try Japchae. Everyone always loves it! This japchae doesn’t have the fun texture of regular japchae noodles but it is full of vegetables, flavor, and super filling. I served it with my Asian Pork Meatballs (recipe here). This was my meal prep this week and I am loving it! The recipe below uses a spaghetti squash that was cut in half, seeds removed, and roasted in the oven at 400°F for one hour with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

1/4 onion, thinly Sliced
