I am back with another installment of dinners you can’t make with men. I am so happy for you if you can get your significant other to eat faux noodles but mine would walk across the street to Chipotle if this is what was served for dinner. So Wednesdays is softball night and I get to try out all my healthy low carb dinner recipes. That Wedding is like a little over 3 months away……time to lock it up. Also side note I am quite aware the “spiralizer” is not a real word. That has been made painfully obvious with my spell checker but it just works so let’s pretend that it is thanks!
So if you remember from this post where I showed you how to make Zucchini noodles which I was over the moon happy when I saw all y’alls recipes after that! I took to another “noodle” recipe and tried my hand at sweet potato noodles. I was so dead tired the other night this is all I could muster up in the recipe department and surprisingly it was quite tasty……probably because I grated truffle cheese over the top. Let’s be honest, truffles make anything taste better. I probably should have found a peeler that wasn’t from 1987…..it was a little scary but managed to get the sweet potato peeled without losing a finger. Get ready for the easiest recipe you’ll ever read.
Here are the stars of the show of this recipe. Check this post for full instructions.
I insist you get this cheese. You only need a tiny amount for huge impact.
Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale and Truffle Cheddar Cheese
Ingredients: -Bag of shredded kale (I got mine at Trader Joe’s) -One large Sweet Potato -Seasonings: salt, pepper, red pepper -Olive Oil -Truffle Cheddar Cheese
Instructions: Peel your sweet potato and chop off the ends Put onto your spiral machine and choose the middle blade Turn the magical wheel
In a deep sauté pan with lid (I used this one) add 1/2 cup of water and olive oil drizzle. Cook up to medium heat. Add kale, salt, pepper, and cover for 1 minute Add the sweet potato noodles Cover again Add seasoning. I like a lot of red pepper because I’m spicy like that Toss the kale and noodles together for less than five minute then take off. You don’t want to overcook the noodles Grate a generous helping of cheese over Relish in the fact you are eating healthy noodles that taste good Then try to limit yourself to only two pumpkin spice oreos because they are crack addicting and it’s not your fault when you eat one tray in a sitting when unsupervised.
I posted the final product on my Instagram page <– just in case you weren’t following me. I got a lot of shout outs about posting healthy recipes. I’m totally down for that if y’all are interested because I know how much you dig my taco soup one and everything…… Hope you are having a fabulous day! My week has been so nuts with work so I apologize for my absence I have lots of reading to catch up on!
So what do you think? Would you eat faux noodles like this? Can’t wait to read your Friday Favorites tomorrow!! xoxoxo
