If you don’t own a spiralizer, I highly recommend that you get one. Though they take up a little space, and are kind of annoying to clean, they make vegetables into noodles, need I say more?? Zuccini noodles raw make for great salads, very lightly cooked they are great with Italian flavors, and then there is the whole world of spiralized potatoes and sweet potatoes!!! You can cook them both by sauté and by baking. Today I went with baking to experience the chewiness of sweet potato noodles made in this manner. They take a different texture sautéed but are soft and chewy when baked. Yes please!
Wash and peel your sweet potatoes. I used 2. Then spiralized them using the larger noodle option of the 2 sizes that came with my spiralizer (I think I payed about $20 on Amazon). Then place on parchment paper, spritz with oil of choice, and then sprinkle with seasonings. I went with black pepper, crushed red pepper, and basil. Whatever you prefer! Ginger, garlic, rosemary, salt would be other nice additions. Then in preheated oven, bake at 370F x 17 minutes for chewy soft noodles! To turn these into shoestring fries, leave them in longer, being careful not to burn them…
These would be incredible for making a pad thai, even spagetti and meatballs, and of course as a delicious side item 🙂
