Ingredients

Greek seasoning

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Fill a 13×9 baking pan with ½ cup of water and set aside.
  2. Cut squash lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Place squash cut side down in baking pan with water. Bake squash for 30 minutes, or until squash is tender.*
  3. While squash is baking, prepare skillet with garlic, chopped onion, and chopped bell pepper. Cook on medium heat until vegetables are slightly soft, ~ 15 minutes. Transfer to separate bowl.
  4. Using same skillet, add turkey burger and cook on medium heat. Add Greek seasonings and crumble meat as it cooks. Fully cook the turkey burger.
  5. Turn stove top to low heat and add vegetables back into skillet with turkey. Add in artichoke hearts, and fresh spinach. Cover skillet with lid and cook until spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes, then stir to combine. Turn stove off.
  6. Once squash is done, flip over and scrape inside with fork so the squash strands come loose. Once bowl is full scraped, add in mixture until full and top with crumbled feta.
  7. Return stuffed squash back to oven for 5 more minutes. This meal can be eaten straight from the bowl, enjoy!

Notes

*If squash is tough to cut, warm squash in the oven while it is preheating, and then cut.
-To make a meatless meal, try replacing the ground turkey with tempeh, chickpeas, lentils, or another high protein vegetable
