After several attempts at cooking sweet potato noodles, we finally succeeded. And trust me – it was worth every failed attempt. Every botched outcome. Every frustrating flop. It has all come down to this.
Zucchini noodles are easy. You don't even have to cook them. In fact, I prefer to eat them raw. They can be tossed in curry sauce. Or pesto. Or made into a loosely-caprese-inspired salad. But I wanted to find more ways to put our spiralizer to use.
Sweet potatoes noodles are different. A spiralizer can handle sweet potatoes just fine. It's easy business, turning a tuber into a pile of pretty orange noodles. But then what? Making them edible is the hard part. Don't even think about boiling them. Steaming them is hard work and you're likely to end up with soggy noodles. Baking them is good, but that's more suited to making sweet potato fries.
Like I said, this Thai peanut sweet potato noodle recipe took a lot of trial and error. But we finally figured out how to perfectly cook sweet potato noodles for a main dish. This cooking method will work for almost any pasta-based dish where you want to swap out regular noodles for something healthier. This particular recipe is the bomb because the sweet potato noodles are tossed in a Thai-inspired sauce that's creamy, spicy, tangy, and savory. Did I mention the toppings and mix-ins?
Crunchy and salty peanuts. Spicy roasted chickpeas (optional). Fresh, zesty cilantro. We're having a flavor party and you're all invited!!! 🎉 🎉 🎉
If you don't have a spiralizer yet, I highly recommend going with The Inspiralizer – it was designed by the queen of spiralizing. She knows what she's doing when it comes to veggie noodles and as such, she's created the best and most functional spiralizer. 💁💁💁
