Although winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st, I feel like the first of December unofficially begins the winter season. Christmas is only a few short weeks away and most places in the country have already received their first dustings of snow. It’s time for sweaters, fires and cozy meals. But some of us happen to live in the desert where snow is nowhere in sight and we are still wearing our flip flops! I should say that I’m wearing pants and sweatshirts with those flip flops, but flip flops none the less.
I decided that these BBQ spaghetti squash and chickpea fritters are the perfect combination of flip flops and sweaters. I used a very seasonal winter squash in this recipe, but it also has some warmer weather BBQ flavors, and the dipping sauce is very reminiscent of your favorite summer coleslaw dressing. Everything goes together so nicely, and it is sure to warm you up while also taking you back to warmer days.
These fritters are so easy to make — you just throw all the ingredients into a bowl, mix them up and then spoon them into a hot pan. Within minutes you have warm, crispy fritters that are perfect for a light lunch or nice to just snack on during the day.
