Squash Potstickers

Squash Potstickers

What’s better than getting potstickers as an appetizer at your favorite Chinese restaurant? Or better yet at Noodles? If you’ve ever gotten their potstickers as an appetizer than you know what I’m talking about!

You probably won’t find squash potstickers on restaurant menus so why not cook some up yourself! I think you’ll be surprised at just how unique and delicious the flavors come together to be. You know I am always looking for ways to switch up my squash, and I think this just might be one of the most unique ways you can use it in.


Pair these potstickers with any of your other favorite Asian dishes you make at home and you’ll get extra nutrients without all of the sodium typically found in Asian restaurant meals. If you’re up for the extra squash, they would even go nicely with my recipe for spaghetti squash pad Thai!

I’d love to know what Asian recipes you re-make at home? There are so many fun ways to add more nutrition to Asian inspired recipes that seriously taste better than the real thing. Gone are my days of eating at Panda Express, because when I do get a hankering Asian food, I try to keep it as healthy as possible, like this Trader Joe’s orange chicken or this Path of Life Asian style quinoa.


Check out this fun video showing exactly how I made them!
