We have fallen a little behind in posting over the past few weeks! Hence the time difference between our Honey Miso Jackfruit Egg Rolls and these ones (as clearly, the egg roll wrappers would have not stayed good for the entire duration). Anyway, for this side dish, we roasted our spaghetti squash and then shredded it, mixed it with sauce, seasoning, garlic, and peas. From there, we spread it on our egg roll wrappers, rolled them up, and baked.
Of course, we had a lot of spaghetti squash left over after we made our egg rolls…so we quickly sautéed that with some sliced chicken, peas, and BBQ sauce as our entree. In all, the egg rolls though were the star of the dish, and I’ve been given the green light by my family to make them again.
Time: 90 Minutes (shorter if you cook your squash ahead of time)
- Spaghetti Squash
- BBQ Sauce
- Egg Roll Wrappers
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet (with sides) with foil.
- Slice your spaghetti squash in half from top to bottom, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Discard the seeds.
- Place each squash half face down on your baking sheet, and then add a little water to your pan. Roast for about 40 minutes until your squash has softened.
- Remove your squash from the oven, and allow to cool briefly while you turn your attention to the rest of your ingredients.
- Peel and mince your garlic. Then, sauté it in some butter until it browns (or in our case overbrowns). Steam some peas as well.
- Once your squash is cool enough to hold, use a fork to “spaghetti-ify” the flesh.
- Combine your spaghetti squash, sautéed garlic, peas, and BBQ sauce in a bowl, and stir to fully incorporate.
- Turn your oven heat up to 375 degrees F, and line a small baking sheet with foil. Give that foil a quick oil spray.
- Scoop your mixture onto your egg rolls, and wrap according to the packaging instructions. Then, place on your baking sheet. Once all egg rolls are done, give the tops a quick oil spray as well.
- Stash in the oven to bake until they are crispy and golden brown (~25 minutes). You may need to rotate them part-way through cooking for even browning. Alternatively, you could deep fry or air fry.
- Plate, devour, and enjoy!
