Description

These Mediterranean Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Bowls incorporate so many veggies, diced chicken, and yummy homemade Tzatziki dressing- perfect for lunch or dinner! The perfect spaghetti squash recipe to make ahead for the week, or customize the veggies for a low carb dinner everyone will love!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash, cooked and sliced in half (I like it warm)
  • 1 cup of chopped baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup of diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of diced cucumber
  • 2 T of diced red onions
  • 20 black olives, chopped
  • 1 1/3 cups of diced grilled chicken
  • 2/3 cup of feta cheese

For the tzatziki

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded, finely grated and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Himalyan salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook spaghetti squash using your favorite method.
  2. While squash is cooking, make your dressing by whisking together all the ingredients. For a thinner dressing, blend ingredients together. I do prefer the dressing thicker for this recipe.
  3. Once squash has cooled enough to handle, remove the seeds from your squash and make “spaghetti” with your fork. Sprinkle both halves with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir spinach leaves into the spaghetti, then top each half with equal amounts of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives, and grilled chicken. Top with feta and 2 T of the dressing on each side.
  5. Scoop a 1/4 of the squash into a bowl, or enjoy a full half! See container counts below for each option.
