I posted this photo (above) on Instagram today, and a bunch of people were curious what it was and how to make it, so I thought I would write a quick explanation. These are sweet potato noodles. Not store-bought noodles that have sweet potato mixed with flour, but noodles literally made from spiralized sweet potato. I cook my sweet potato noodles in lard over about medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. It couldn’t be faster or easier.
Since I don’t have a sauce for you today I wanted to link to this recipe for sweet potato noodles, which I have been meaning to try for some time now. These noodles are made exactly the same way, they just use a different setting on the spiralizer (the difference between fettuccine and spaghetti).
Also, I have only ever sauteed my sweet potato noodles, but this soaking method is on my list of things to try.
Below is one of my photos demonstrating how the spiralizer works:
I think a food processor with the julienne slicer setting would also work.
