Ever since I got my starfrit spiralizer I have become obsessed with spiralizing vegetables. So far, I have created spiral 'noodles' using peppers, cucumber, carrots, and most recently sweet potato. I decided to test out a sweet potato noodle side dish using some of my favourite Asian cuisine flavours (and I absolutely loved it).
Give this quick recipe a try, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Side note: many grocery stores now sell pre- spiralized veggies (I have seen beets, sweet potato, and zucchini at my local grocery store).
2 small sweet potatoes
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 small onion, minced
2 tsp. ginger, minced (or paste)
1 1/2 cups cooked edamame beans
1 tsp. chili pepper flakes
2 tsp. sesame seeds (optional topping)
Spiralize sweet potatoes (I used a thin spiral option). They will feel somewhat moist, so be sure to pat dry with a cloth. Your other option is to purchase a small container of spiralized sweet potatoes.
In a heated pan, add sesame oil, onion, and ginger. Sauté for 1 minute to build flavour. Add sweet potato noodles, chili flakes and any other desired seasoning, sauté for an additional 5 minutes, until they soften (but don't break apart or lose form).
Add in pre-cooked edamame beans and sauté for an additional minute.
Remove from heat and top with sesame seeds.
Cheers to happy and healthy eating.
Until next time,
