I got a spiraliser… So naturally, I am spiraling everything. I wanted to make a quick, easy and healthy lunch that wasn’t too heavy and plant based. This recipe only requires minimal ingredients which is also a plus (especially because I can be really lazy). Not only are sweet potatoes healthy and delicious, they can also be made into sweet potato noodles (spoodles)! If you haven’t gotten a spiraliser yet I highly recommend one. I made Creamy Vegan Pesto Zoodles which was so good too. I just need to work out what else I can put through the spiraliser. Any recommendations?
You could have this dish as a main or on the side of something else. The beauty is you can bulk up the recipe too. You could add tofu or any other vegetables (mushrooms would be good).
Vegan Sweet Potato Noodles
1 head of broccoli (cut into small pieces)
1 sweet potato* (peeled and spiralised)
1/2 red capsicum (diced)
1 small Spanish onion (diced)
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
1 tablespoon coconut aminos** (or soy sauce)
Optional – sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pine nuts
1) Heat a large frying pan with 1 teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil.
2) Saute the garlic, broccoli, onion and capsicum for 4 minutes or until ingredients are soft.
3) Add in the sweet potato noodles, coconut aminos and chili flakes and saute for a further 4 minutes.
4) Add any optional ingredients (I used sunflower seeds, pine nuts and sesame seeds for extra crunch and nutrients).
5) Serve and enjoy as a main or side dish.
* Try and find thin sweet potatoes. The large, thick ones will be difficult to put into the spiraliser. Also, you could grate the sweet potato too.
** Coconut aminos has a sweet, light soy taste that can be used in replacement for soy sauce. To find out more check out Vegan Pantry: Go to products that every vegan needs.
