Ingredients: chicken, coconut oil, rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, kosher salt, spaghetti squash.

This dish definitely has the flavors of summer, light and fresh, and could be eaten hot or cold as a salad. The lemon and rosemary go well with the chicken, but you could also use pork or shrimp in this recipe. Once you’ve mastered cooking spaghetti squash, the serving ideas are endless! This also makes a great lunchbox option for taking to work.

Baked Veggie Spaghetti Terrine

– Craving 4 More

Ingredients: spaghetti squash, extra virgin olive oil, swiss chard, yellow onion, celery, carrot, Mediterranean sea salt blend, parsley or cilantro.

This dish could be served at a dinner party as it looks so good! The layers of color and texture make it appealing to the eye as well as the palate, yet it is quite simple to achieve. This recipe would be ideal if you are entertaining friends who are vegetarian and they will really feel you have gone to great effort for them.

Dairy Free Beef Stroganoff

– Domestic Soul

Ingredients: ground beef, shiitake mushrooms, chicken broth, red onion, dried parsley, white wine vinegar, coconut oil, salt, spaghetti squash.

Thinking about stroganoff you automatically think heavy, creamy sauce, but this recipe gives you a similar flavor but without the cream. Of course you can alter the seasoning to suit your own palate, but with the squash having a subtle flavor the taste of the beef and mushrooms is allowed to shine through. Button mushrooms are good in this dish if you can’t find shiitake ones.

Spaghetti Squash with Sausage, Brussels Sprouts, and Apples

– Naked Avocado

Ingredients: spaghetti squash, olive oil, sea salt, breakfast sausage, coconut oil, brussels sprouts, onion, apples, thyme.

This is quite a hearty dish, but it is so adaptable too. You can use whatever sausage you prefer and this is a great way to get the family eating more greens, but if you really can’t eat sprouts, you could use kale or cabbage instead. Try to use a firm apple like Braeburn or Gala, as they will hold their shape better through the cooking process.

Ingredients: spaghetti squash, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, thyme.

Spaghetti squash is a perfect replacement for traditional wheat-based pasta. It can be teamed with a meat sauce, but is quite delicious as a side dish with roasted meats or fish. The herbs can be altered too – for example use some rosemary for chicken dishes or fennel with fish.

Spaghetti Squash with Avocado Cream Sauce

– Naked Avocado

Ingredients: spaghetti squash, avocado, olive oil, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, sea salt, garlic, basil leaves, parsley.

Often when you have to follow, or prefer to follow a particular way of eating, you miss out on the ‘comfort’ aspect that comes from creamy sauces, especially on chilly nights, so here is one that you can enjoy without the guilt! Because avocado has a subtle flavor, it can take stronger tastes like the lemon and garlic, making this a great side to serve with fish.

Butternut Squash Sauce

– Naked Avocado

Ingredients: butternut squash, garlic, olive oil, sage, sea salt, pepper, avocado, water, spaghetti squash.

This is another recipe that can satisfy the need for creaminess as it uses squash and avocado to mimic the texture. This recipe can be adapted to suit your palate by using different herbs, but it honestly tastes great as it is. Served over spaghetti squash you end up with a satisfying meal.

Sautéed Yellow Squash Ribbons

– The Black Peppercorn

Ingredients: oil, yellow squash or crookneck squash, onion, garlic, parsley, salt.

These ribbons of squash look so pretty, as the squash retains its yellow color after cooking! They are really easy to make with a potato peeler and cook in just a few minutes. They make a lovely side with grilled chicken, or you could use them in place of lasagna sheets – just lay the strips side-by-side instead of the pasta for a healthy lasagna dish.

Butternut Squash Zoodle Sauce

– Real Food Forager

Ingredients: butternut squash, beets, water, onion, garlic, sea salt, basil, oregano (optional), zucchini.

If you are avoiding nightshades, but really miss tomato sauces, why not give this recipe a try! The beets add the color and the squash gives the smoothness to make this a great sauce for zucchini noodles. If you can, leave the sauce in the refrigerator overnight to allow the flavors to marry together and intensify.

Asian Garlic Beef Noodles

– Paleo Flourish

Ingredients: onion, beef, avocado oil or coconut oil, coconut aminos, garlic, fresh ginger, cilantro, zucchini, or shirataki noodles.

Ginger and garlic are the most common basic ingredients in Asian cuisine and they make this dish taste so good! This recipe is quite quick to make, giving you a speedy, tasty meal for unexpected dinner guests or after a busy day at work. The aromas from the beef will definitely make your mouth water! Try using a red onion instead for a gentler, slightly sweeter taste.

– Paleo Flourish

Ingredients: olives, oregano, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, zucchini, sardines.

This is a quick and easy recipe for a tapenade that is served here with sardines, but would also make a great addition to grilled chicken or fish. In our house it has also been served as a dip for veggie crudities as it has a lovely fresh flavor from the oregano and richness from the olives. This is a good way to introduce olives to your diet if you have never tried them before.

Ingredients: chicken broth, chicken, avocado oil, celery, green onion, cilantro, zucchini, salt.

Chicken noodle soup is a favorite with so many of us, children included! This is a perfect recipe to encourage the kids to eat more veggies – they don’t even think of the ‘noodles’ as vegetables! You can use a potato peeler to create thin strips, or treat yourself to a spiralizer and have fun making this.

Zoodles with Kale and Lemon

– Zenbelly

Ingredients: zucchini, salt, garlic, kale, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, basil or mint.

We all know that kale provides us with a lot of nutritional benefits, so finding a recipe that uses it but tastes great is a fantastic bonus. This can be used as a side dish or light lunch, either hot or cold! One of the top tips for cooking this dish is to get rid of as much water from the zucchini as possible – there is nothing worse than a watery mess at the bottom of the dish!

Zucchini Noodles with Scallops & Bacon

– Meatified

Ingredients: scallops, bacon, zucchini, garlic powder, green onions, lemon juice, sea salt.

What an impressive dish this is! The tiny scallops and meaty bacon pieces make this a meal to impress for a dinner party or celebration. Because the zucchini noodles do not have a strong flavor, don’t be tempted to skimp on the seasoning as they take on stronger flavors really well. If you can’t find the tiny scallops then use large ones and slice them through the middle.

Live Pasta with Agretti and Lemon

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon, agretti, zucchini.

Agretti is most commonly found growing by the seashore in Mediterranean countries. It has a really fresh taste, and along with the lemon, gives this dish a really lively flavor. If you can’t find agretti, spinach has roughly the same taste, so just use that as a substitute. This dish works really well with fish dishes or on its own as a light lunch.

Lemon Basil Tagliatelle

– Craving 4 More

Ingredients: zucchini, basil, lemon, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt.

One of the best things about this recipe is that the end product is so fresh and aromatic! Thanks to the scent of basil it smells really appetizing, and the freshness is enhanced by adding lemon juice. This would make the perfect light lunch on a hot day, or you could add in some cooked chicken or pulled pork to turn it into a more substantial dinner.

Pesto Chicken Zusketti

– Kristine Rudolph

Ingredients: chicken thighs, garlic, salt, zucchini, fat, extra-virgin olive oil, basil, lemon juice.

This recipe was designed for children, so it involves milder flavors than you can get away with for adults. However, this is a well-balanced meal, full of great ingredients that could be spiced up for some people. Roasting the garlic takes away the harshness of the flavor, making it more subtle, yet still contributing great taste to the dish.

Ingredients: white sweet potato, coconut oil, sea salt.

These noodles work so well to provide you with a crunch in your diet and go perfectly well with spaghetti sauces. They are simple to make, especially if you have a spiral cutter, which may even lead to you experimenting with ’noodling’ other veggies like parsnips and zucchini! While you are cooking these, keep an eye on them as they can burn round the edges.

Alfredo with Caramelized Leeks & Bacon

– Meatified

This recipe seems a bit more complex than some, but it is well worth the effort! Just imagine a lovely creamy sauce served over noodles and topped with crispy bacon – a fantastic meal for a cold day when you need some comfort food! Instead of sweet potato noodles, you could use zucchini, which works really well too.

Ingredients: beef, salt, coconut oil, onion, carrot, celery, garlic, orange, balsamic vinegar, water, cinnamon, bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, sage, rutabagas.

Once cooked the rutabaga has the consistency of al dente pasta and makes a great base for the popular Italian sauces that we all love. It has a slightly earthy taste, making it a great partner for the cinnamon, bay leaf and orange in this hearty stew.

Ingredients: parsnips, avocado oil, coconut aminos, fish sauce, lime juice, garlic powder, ginger, green onions, avocado oil (optional)

The ingredients in the dressing in this recipe remind you of Asian cuisine, so these noodles would be great as a base for dishes like chow mein, but really the choice is yours! They are tasty and delicious serve simply with a steak or grilled chicken breast. If you prefer the noodles a bit softer, simply fry them in a skillet for a few minutes until they soften but still have a bit of a bite.

Ingredients: avocado oil, pork, cabbage, onion, garlic powder, ginger, coconut aminos, fish sauce, Thai basil, green onions, cilantro, mint, lime juice.

One good thing about stir-fries is that they are ready in a matter of minutes, so are perfect for a quick dinner after a busy day. This Asian-inspired recipe is packed with flavor and the cabbage shreds work so well in place of noodles. You could even liven it up more by using green and red cabbage, giving you a rainbow effect!
