Spaghetti Squash Low Carb Fritters

Yep, I did go there.  I called it Best Low Carb Fritters because I really do think they are the best I have ever tasted and I think you will too.  These fritters are made with spaghetti squash, fresh mint, coriander and almond flour.  Since you are probably using spaghetti squash for your keto pasta night, the other half of the squash can be used the next day to make these low carb fritters.  You truly need to make these!

Im sure you made zucchini fritters and you thought they were amazing but these are going to be even better.  With the mix of spices and the roasted flavour of the spaghetti squash you will never go back to making zucchini fritters again.  Not only does spaghetti squash have Vitamin C (1 cup has 5.4mg), it also has vitamin A, B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin K.

How to Make Spaghetti Squash

Don’t get discouraged from making spaghetti squash because it involves using the oven.  It’s actually very easy and pretty much a no brainer that you can’t mess up as long as you follow these easy steps.  Let me show you how I made it before we dive into The Best Low Carb Fritter recipe.

Using your best knife cut your squash in half widthwise because this ensures you fork out longer strings of the “spaghetti”.  Although if you are strictly using this just for the fritters, it really doesn’t matter if the strings are short or long.  However, if you are going to be using half of the squash for spaghetti you definitely want to cut it widthwise like in the photo below

Then scoop out the guts, you will be able to tell when to stop once you get all the seeds and the stringy bits out.

Then place both halves face down in a pan and fill the pan with about 1 inch of water.

You can shred out the “spaghetti” and top it with your favourite sauce, in the photo below I topped it with a meat sauce and some grated parmesan cheese.

Bake in the oven at 350 fahrenheight for 45 minutes.
