Meatless Monday Recipe : Roasted Sweet Onion Sauce over Spaghetti Squash Noodles

I’m back on my veggie noodle kick but this time I’m using spaghetti squash noodles, which I’ve lovingly decided to call spoodles.  They seem so perfect for Fall with their golden color, they match the changing of the leaves.  I’ve shared my sweet onion sauce recipe before BUT this time there’s a slight change that makes a world of difference in the flavor.  I roasted the sweet onion instead of sautéing it!  Best part about this change?  It’s the easiest thing in the world to do.  You just cut the onion in half, rub olive oil on it, and then place it cut side down in the oven for 30 minutes.  Easy peasy right?!  I loved it so much that I started doing this for my homemade soup recipes too.  Sooo tasty!!  You’ve got to try it.  It basically tastes like the onion part of a blooming onion.  Delish!

Meatless Monday Recipe : Roasted Sweet Onion Sauce over Spaghetti Squash Noodles

 

  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 large clove of garlic or two small
  • 1/2 cup water (more if you don’t want it so thick)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp flour (I used GF plantain flour)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp dried parsley
  • black pepper to taste

 

Meatless Monday Recipe : Roasted Sweet Onion Sauce over Spaghetti Squash Noodles

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 425′
  2. Chop the sweet onion in half and rub with olive oil.  Place cut side down on baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. While oven is preheating, pierce the outside of the squash 8 – 10 times and place in the microwave on high for 15 minutes.
  4. When the squash is done, set it aside to cool.  Once squash has cooled, cut in half and deseed.  Drizzle some olive oil over the cut portion of the squash and place open side down on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Once oven has preheated, place both the onion and squash in for 20 – 30 minutes.  30 minutes for a larger squash.
  6. When you’ve finished cooking the onion, peel the outside of the onion (this should be very easy).  Then add all ingredients (except squash) into the food processor and blend.
  7. Use a fork to gently remove spoodles from the squash’s shell.  Set aside.
  8. Pour sauce into a skillet on medium heat.  Cook until sauce thickens, add spaghetti squash for a few minutes and serve.

Nautical Style for Fall

I’m eating up all this nautical style for Fall!  I can’t wait to wrap myself up in some thick cozy sweaters, and stripes, lots and lots of stripes (yay!).  Although who are we kidding? I wrap myself in stripes all year round.  There is more than just stripes that I’m loving about this nautical style look book.  For instance, wearing a sweater with bikini bottoms!  I don’t know why but I think this looks super cute!!  Check it out:

Top 5 Meatless Monday Recipes for Fall

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite Meatless Monday recipes for Fall.  I can already feel a little chill in the air (eek!).  Which means it’s time to dig into some warm and savory meals!  Just the other night I made my Sweet Onion Sauce and Gnocchi but this time I used Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi.  It was sooo good!!  You would never know it was cauliflower.  Next time you’re in Trader Joe’s I recommend stock piling it, as it does sell out quickly.  Check out that recipe and more below:

I’m just on the brink of changing up my hair game but first I wanted a little inspiration.  So I turned towards the runway and it didn’t disappoint!  I’m loving these 5 Fall hair trends that I spotted.  Definitely considering getting bangs again.  My hair is naturally curly so bangs are considerably easier during the Fall/Winter months when there’s less humidity.  Are you thinking of changing up your hair game?  Check out these Fall hair trends below:

Life’s a Beach Quote

Isn’t the beach the best?!  When I was little I wanted to live on the beach.  Let me clarify.  Not live in a beach house but actually live on the beach.  I wanted to sleep on the sand at night and wake up to the waves touching my toes.  Make plates out of palm leaves and cups out of coconuts.  Because why have walls separating you from your favorite place?
