Spaghetti Squash Latkes

December 4, 2018

Spaghetti squash adds so much flavor and texture to a latke recipe, you wouldn’t miss the potato. With less carbs while still boosting of vitamins, minerals and fiber, you’ll love this variation for your Hanukah meal. 


  1. 2 scallions, chopped
  2. 1½ cup roasted spaghetti squash
  3. 1 egg
  4. 2 tablespoons almond flour
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  6. Salt and pepper, to taste
  7. Coconut oil, if frying or Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to drizzle, if baking


  1. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg and set aside.
  2. Then, add all the other ingredients and mix to combine.
  3. Take about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and form thin patties or "latkes".
  4. If frying: In a medium sauce pan, add about 1 tbsp coconut oil. Once melted, add the latkes, about 4 at a time (re-adding and melting coconut oil), cooking at about 2-4 minutes per side.
  5. If baking: On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the latkes and drizzle olive oil on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-20 minutes, until desired crispiness.
  6. When completed, place on wired drying wrack (with a paper towel underneath to absorb excess oil).


  1. Although coconut oil is a cleaner alternative to vegetable or other oils used for frying, it is still caloric. For a healthier recipe, opt for the baking variation.
