Rosemary-Sage Butternut Squash Fritters
Butternut squash fritter recipe & content provided by Veronica Culver, The Enchanted Cook
So often we think of butternut squash as something we roast and blend into a hearty soup, which is a wonderful way to enjoy it. Today, we’ve reimagined it, by turning spiralized butternut squash pasta (aka boodles) into delicious butternut squash fritters. Fresh sage and rosemary work as natural complements to round out this savory dish. These fritters work beautifully alongside any entree, from eggs to steak. Or use them as a deconstructed sandwich, and pile high with your favorite sandwich toppings.
For a sweet treat, drizzle butternut squash fritters with raw honey, a sprinkle of cinnamon and eat it as a dessert. The only limit is your own imagination.
We love butternut squash for its healthy nutritional profile — high in vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, low in calories and relatively low in net carbs.
