Serves: 4-5 Cups
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (see notes for size)
  • pinch of kosher salt
  1. Use your spiralizer to sprialize the sweet potatoes. I used a hand-held sprializer, which was slightly difficult to use for a sweet potato. If you don't own a spiralizer, you may use a julienne peeler to create sweet potato noodles. Hold the potato in one hand and slowly pull the julienne peeler down the potato with your other hand. Repeat this process until the entire sweet potato is "peeled". NOTE: using a julienne peeler is a tedious process but it can be done.
  2. Cook the sweet potato noodles. Place 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil in a 10 inch skillet (I used cast iron but you may use stainless steel) and heat over medium high heat. Add the spiralized sweet potatoes and toss with tongs to coat with the olive oil. Continue to toss with the tongs every few seconds to prevent the potatoes from burning or becoming stuck on the bottom of the skillet. Do this for 5-10 minutes. The cooking time will depend on your preferred texture of the noodles. If you love a little crunch, cook for 5 minutes. If you prefer soft noodles, cook for 10. Sample a noodle to find out if it's reached your preferred texture.
  3. Once the noodles are done cooking, remove from heat and serve directly from the skillet or in serving bowls with whichever sauces or topping you prefer.
Choose thinner sweet potatoes as they will be easier to use in a spiralizer.
