Spaghetti Squash Tater Tots:

I was experimenting with cooking my spaghetti squash in my instant pot and to be honest I cooked it way too long and ended up with mush. Since I am against food waste, I got to brainstorming how I was going to this mush. Since the spaghetti squash was super wet I first put it in my nut milk bag and strained out all the liquid. Then it turned into a dough ball and I thought okay why not make some tater tots/mozzarella sticks with this.

How I did it:

I added my spaghetti squash mush, eggs, almond meal, monterey jack cheese, Primal Palate Amore seasoning, and mix it all. Then with your hands form into little tater tots, they do expand while cooking so make small. Add to a lined baking dish and bake 400 for 15 minutes, flipping half way through. I served mine with Primal Kitchen Foods spicy ketchup.

How to store:

These spaghetti squash tots will make for a perfect option for meal prepping. Simply prepare them on Sunday and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. And when you want to have them just reheat in convection oven on 350 F for 5-7 minutes or until warmed through.

Crowd Pleaser:

These turned out super delicious and even Todd enjoyed them, so you know they are good :). I can’t wait for you to try these. Your guest would never know there was spaghetti squash in these bad boys. Let me know if you try them over on Instagram.
