If you do not own a spiralizer, you need to buy one. Like now, seriously. I use a Veggie Bullet, and I’m not being paid to endorse them. This is just an appliance that I own and use. Plus, I’m sure there are many varieties out there that work just as well as mine. There are just a ton of fruits and veggies that you can spiralize. But sweet potato noodles have quickly become a family favourite in this house. In fact, this might be my favourite way to serve sweet potatoes!
These sweet potato noodles are so easy to prepare ahead of time. I process them right from the morning so they’re ready to go. You can leave them at room temperature for several hours, until ready to cook.
The options are endless! Okay maybe not endless, but I’m always enjoying new ways to use my spiralizer. Let me know what your favourite thing is to spiralize in the comments below.
Just look how pretty and perfect these noodles come out! I’ve always loved making veggie noodles for a healthier alternative to pasta. But I was once using a mandolin!! It was quite labour intensive, not to mention dangerous! With this amazing spiralizer, I’ve cut prep time down and made it safer! I’ve since thrown my mandolin in the garbage. 🙂
I like to keep my noodles simple by sautéing in a skillet with a touch of oil and a little salt and pepper. But feel free to get creative! You can add cinnamon and nutmeg for a sweet version, or some chili flakes or hot pepper oil for a spicy option.
These noodles pair particularly well with my vegan “meat” balls. Try the combo and let me know what you think!
