Making your food into spirals just makes it that more FUN and enjoyable to eat! I hope you will swoon over the swoodles like I am!
The spiralizer is a beautiful thing. If you have not purchased one yet, I highly recommend doing so! They are fun to use in the kitchen and can help increase your vegetable consumption by replacing something typically higher in carbohydrates with a veggie! I usually use my spiralizer to make zoodles **zucchini noodles** but today I opted for sweet potato (mainly because I had so many to use up!) I used the KitchenAid spiralizer attachment and it works SO well.
Here are some other recipes (rather old recipes yet still delicious I might add) on the blog I’ve made with zoodles:
There is seriously so much flavor in this one dish – it is delicious. I did not think sesame oil + soy sauce flavors would mesh well with sweet potato but my taste buds were happy! I would recommend making some type of Asian chicken to pair with this or even Asian flavored meatballs. Mmmm.
If you are in to meal prepping, you can also spiralize the noodles ahead of time, and when you’re read to eat, heat them up and toss with the sauce. Many times, we get so busy and when we get hungry we can be pretty ravenous! But being prepared can help you make more mindful decisions when it comes to eating! 🙂
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 Tbsp. Avocado Oil
- 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
- 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp. honey
- pinch crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tsp. Liquid Aminos
- 1 tsp. mirin
- 1 green onion, diced
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- Cook the sweet potato a 425F for 10-15 minutes (will not be fully cooked at this point).
- While the potato cools off a little, make the dressing!
- In a small bowl whisk together the liquid aminos/soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, vinegar, honey, red pepper flakes, and salt.
- Set the dressing aside.
- Spirilize the sweet potato into noodles.
- In a medium sauté pan heat the noodles with avocado oil for about 5 minutes (I like them slightly crunchy but cook longer, 10-15 min, if desired).
- Toss in the dressing, green onions, and sesame seeds.
- Serve warm or cold.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up 5 days.
- Note: if you don't have Mirin, rice vinegar with a little sugar will do the trick! Or, opt out of the sugar since these noodles are already sweet with the honey and ACV.
- *Liquid aminos is a soy sauce alternative.
- I made this recipe originally in October of 2015, I need to retake the photos but I wanted to re-share it with you right away! Pictures on here are a combination of iPhone photos and pictures from 2015. Will retake soon! 🙂
