Fall Meals: Spaghetti Squash Cakes & Red Pepper Soup

Meatless Monday? Meatless Tuesday? Make it Meatless Whatever-Day-Of-The-Week-You-Want. Did you know that the meat industry is the most polluting industry out there? I’m not going vegetarian anytime soon, but I think that its good to cut back on meat and have some meatless days thrown in there. Also, eggs are a protein-eous substitute and great on pretty much anything… But these spaghetti squash cakes especially. Enjoy with some red pepper soup and you’ve got yourself a warm and cozy fall meal!

    • Me too – we started a tradition of making a soup every Monday night last Fall. We continued through the summer, it’s fantastic! They’re great because you can make them the weekend before and have them ready to eat whenever you need…

  6. I love spaghetti squash but find it hard to locate where I live. I might have to check out the farmers markets in autumn to see if I can make these, but that means I have to wait until next year! 🙁

    • Hope you can find it! If not, you could try this recipe that uses just any type of squash (like acorn)!

      • Thank you so much for that link! I can get other types of squash at the supermarket quite easily so hooray for squash cakes 🙂

    • Me too! I think plopping an egg on top definitely helps 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Natalie!
