Have you ever had a Thai fried rice made the traditional way wrapped inside the thin egg pancake? Our Skinny Spaghetti Squash Egg Roll Ups are built on that very idea but instead of using high carb white rice or noodles, we used spaghetti squash, mushrooms and vegetables.

Spaghetti squash is much like tofu as it is a blank template and picks up the flavors of whatever you have mixed in the dish. We chose Chinese 5 spice, garlic (of course), and sesame oil to bring out those delicate Asian flavors.

Do you remember that feeling when you need to wear your stretch pants to Thanksgiving dinner?  Did you know that an average Thanksgiving meal has 4,500 calories and a whopping 229 grams of fat during a typical holiday gathering?  Holy cow! You are a cow!!! Been there. Done that and don’t like that guilt that comes afterwards and days of recovery.

That might be a bit obsessive, what do you think? Let’s try something a little different. Let’s use Asian spices instead of sugar and carbs to fuel our meal.

Our Skinny Squash Egg Roll Ups work great as a side or even as an appetizer.

We roasted our spaghetti squash because we love that flavor from the roasting process. You could do that up to 2 days in advance. If you are low on time you can also cook your spaghetti squash in the microwave.

Skinny Spaghetti Squash Egg Roll Ups are a low carb anytime snack made with roasted spaghetti squash, vegetables wrapped up in a thin egg pancake with a spicy dipping sauce.

 

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 50 mins
  • Yields: 18 appetizers

Ingredients

Spaghetti squash – 1 cut in half and seeds removed (you will only need about ½ a spaghetti squash for this recipe depending on how large your spaghetti squash is)

Water – ¼ cup

Olive oil – 1 tablespoon

Garlic – 2 cloves minced

Ginger – 1 inch knob peeled and minced

Snap peas – 1 cup washed, string removed and sliced

Red bell pepper – 1/3 cup small diced

Mushrooms – ½ cup sliced

Salt and white pepper to taste

Chinese 5 spice powder – 1 teaspoon

Sesame oil – 1 teaspoon

Eggs – 6 beaten

Green onions – 3 chopped

Spicy dipping sauce

Olive oil – 1 tablespoon

Garlic – 1 clove peeled and minced

Dried red pepper flakes – ½ teaspoon or to taste

Ginger- fresh ½ teaspoon

Tamari (soya Sauce) – 4 tablespoons

Directions

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.

2Carefully Cut spaghetti squash in half. (Get your fingers out of harms ways) We used a Chinese clever to cut in half.

3Place spaghetti squash cut side down on top of a lined baking sheet. Add the water to the baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes or until you can easily pierce a fork into the skin. Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes.

4Make your spicy dipping sauce: In a small pan add oil and heat to medium and add garlic, ginger just until aromatic. Remove pan from heat. Add the chili peppers and sauté just for a second and then add your tamari (soya) sauce. Set aside.

5In a wok or frying pan, add oil, garlic, ginger, snap peas, red bell peppers , mushrooms (or any vegetables your little heart desires and stir fry for a couple of minutes until bright green and slightly tender.

6Using a fork scrape the inside of the spaghetti squash in long strokes to remove the flesh. Add about 2 cups or ½ of the spaghetti squash to the wok, season with salt and white pepper, Chinese 5 spice and a drizzle of sesame oil and quickly stirfry just until your ingredients are incorporated. Remove from burner and set aside to keep warm.

7In an omelet size frying pan or wok, spray with a little cooking oil. Heat pan to medium and add one beaten egg and swirl pan to have a light coating of egg on the bottom for a round egg pancake. It only takes 1 minute to cook. As soon as the egg is dry quickly remove the egg pancakes and place on a plate and keep warm. Repeat with the 5 remaining eggs.

8Assembly: On a board or plate lay one thin egg pancake. Add about 3 tablespoons of the seasoned stir fried spaghetti squash to one end of the egg. Top with a few fresh chopped green onions. Roll up like a tortilla. Cut off uneven ends… Then cut into thirds.

9Serve Skinny Spaghetti Squash Egg Roll Ups with the spicy dipping sauce and enjoy!

  • Mmmm, these spaghetti squash egg roll ups look so cute and intriguing — love how low-carb and lighter this is. I adore anything spicy and I so want that spicy sauce in my life.

    • Thank you Anu. The sauce has a big kick so I know you would like it. Of course you can adjust the chili taste to your desired heat level.

  • I love the egg roll up notion on its own but such a nice surprise to have the spaghetti squashing filling. It looks absolutely delicious and something I would feel great eating. The dipping sauce sounds like an excellent accompaniment.

    • Thank you dear. A fun new kind of fun dim sum.

  • Oh wow this is definitely my kind of dish, and what great flavours. Perfect for my lunch box too pinned for later 😀
