Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup scallions chopped
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 small napa cabbage chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless/skinless chicken sliced (or meat of choice)
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash noodles squeeze moisture out with towel
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice about half a lemon
  • ¼ tsp SweetLeaf stevia drops
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes more or less to taste

Instructions

  • Cook and roast spaghetti squash noodles using preferred cooking method. I like to use the Instant Pot method so they are not overcooked.
  • Heat cooking oil in large pot or wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic and scallions. Cook for a couple minutes until fragrant.
  • Push garlic and scallions to side and add in beaten eggs. Scramble them and cook until no longer runny. 
  • Add in chopped cabbage. Stir and cook until it starts to wilt down.
  • Put chicken into pan and stir fry until it is no longer pink.
  • Add in spaghetti squash noodles, fish sauce, lemon juice, and stevia. Stir to ensure liquid is evenly mixed into noodles, cabbage, and meat. Continue to cook and stir for a few more minutes to ensure everything is fully cooked.
