Simple Curried Spaghetti Squash Cakes

I went on a date with The Husband last night and had a blast out with friends, enjoying a bit too much wine, and way to much food. All I’ll say is… MAN why is fresh Italian bread so darn good?!?

Anyway, this morning I woke up still full. This always happens when I’ve been eating mostly clean and then overindulge a bit. That one meal stays with me, and I’ve learned to wait a few hours until I actually feel hunger before eating something light.

Today this was my ‘something light.’

Simple Curried Spaghetti Squash Cakes - ingredients

Simple Curried Spaghetti Squash CakesI was craving something spicy and the smell of the curry hit the spot when I opened the jar. I thought it would be a fun addition to a simple cake made with spaghetti squash. And it was!

I’ve made a more detailed version of spaghetti squash cakes before (click here) before but honestly, I had no desire to chop or prepare anything this morning. This version was super simple, tasty and totally hit the spot.

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 cup Spaghetti squash

Whisk the egg, curry and salt together.

Ugh.

    Ok, I seriously love this. I would never have thought to make spaghetti squash cakes…add curry even better. AWESOME, and I wish I had one right now to snack on :)

  2. love cooking

    It is simple and looks so delicious. I am thinking to make it into sweet version by adding some cheese and honey. Using spaghetti squash to make something like pancake is so creative, maybe using sweet potatoes would be not bad too. :)

    Mmmm…c’est trés bon!)
    But I have never tasted it with a ketchup. Probably, curry and ketchup works very vell. Definitely need to try! Roni, thank you for this idea!
    In Russia we usually do it with a raw potatoes or a zucchini and accompany with a ligth sour-сream (and with a little kiss of a red caviar for gourmets)
