Ingredients
  1. 2 eggs
  2. 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  3. 2 cups spaghetti squash, cooked and wringed out
  4. 2 cups quinoa, cooked
  5. 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  6. ¼ cup fresh spinach, finely chopped (OPTIONAL)
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
For garnish
  1. 2 green onions, chopped
  2. pomegranate seeds
  3. mixed greens
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the squash in 2 halves, scrape out the seeds and the fiber out of each half. Spray oil over the cut sides of the squash. Spray the baking sheet with oil and place the squash on the baking sheet cut side down.
  3. Bake for about 30-40 minutes. Remove it from the oven when it’s cooked through and soft, and let it cool. Flip the squash so that cut side faces up to cool. After squash cools, scrape squash with a fork to remove flesh in long strands and transfer to a plate to drain liquid. Use paper towels or a kitchen towel to press and drain out liquid. Try to get rid of as much liquid as you can.
  4. In a large bowl, using electric mixer, beat 2 eggs on high speed for 1-2 minutes. Add flour and continue beating for about 30 seconds to combine. To the same bowl, add spaghetti squash, quinoa, Parmesan cheese, finely chopped spinach, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix very well until all the mixture has uniform consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
  5. Heat a large skillet on high-medium heat until very hot. Then add olive oil. Using a tablespoon, spoon the batter for each fritter and drop on the skillet. Using a spatula, correct the shape of each fritter, making it flatter and rounder. Cook until the bottom side of each fritter is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Using spatula, flip fritters to the opposite side, and cook 1-2 more minutes. Turn off the heat and let the fritters sit in the skillet (uncovered) for 2-3 more minutes.
  6. Serve on top of greens and garnish with pomegranates. Enjoy!
