favorite fridays.


vegetarian spaghetti with meatless meat.

i am a vegetarian, and have been for nearly three years. that is not to say that i don’t miss meat. in fact, my daily menu consists of some sort of a meat substitute, generally at supper time. whether it is a veggie burger, veggie hotdog, or veggie ground beef, i try to incorporate at least one of these miracle products into my meals!! delicious, quick, and safer than real meat, i thought that i would share my vegetarian spaghetti recipe with you this week (and perhaps convert at least one of you into a once-a-week-vegetarian).


you will need:

1 box of spaghetti (whole wheat is best)

1 package of vegetarian ground beef

olive oil

vegetables of choice (i used a green pepper, tomato, zucchini, and parsley)

salt + pepper

tomato sauce (optional)

cheese (optional)

in a large sauce pan begin to boil the spaghetti. remember that whole wheat noodles take additional time.

meanwhile chop the vegetables and combine them into a large frying pan. cook over medium heat. add salt and pepper.

when vegetables begin to brown, add the veggie ground beef. continue to cook for a few minutes. (if you wish to have tomato sauce, add it now).

once ready, remove spaghetti from heat. drain and set aside. remove veggie mixture from heat. combine the two, add cheese, parsley, and voila!


i know that you will enjoy this savory and satisfying meal! that’s a hello scarlett promise. :-)

p.s. do you like my vegetable winky face?
