Spiralized Sweet Potato Noodles tossed in simple avocado tahini sauce, mixed with chickpeas, fresh basil and top with feta | Gluten Free + Grain Free + Vegan Option
My love affair with sweet potatoes continue…
And to think I never used to like sweet potatoes until a couple of years ago. I just thought they were weird and mushy and generally gross.
Oh how times have changed. I feel like every other recipe I’ve been sharing lately have been ones with sweet potatoes because I am convinced that you can do anything with them.
Case and point(s):
- Sweet Potato Pancakes
- Savoury Waffles
- Paleo Pizza Rolls (this crust is my everything)
- Chocolate Ice Cream (no one would know)
- Paleo + Vegan Frosting (decadent + secretly healthy )
So yeah! Sweet potatoes = miracle food
How to Make: Sweet Potato Noodles with Chickpeas & Creamy Avocado Sauce
This recipe is fast ✔️ easy ✔️ incredibly delicious ✔️
You can throw it together in 20 minutes or less and requires only 10 ingredients!
It’s a faster, simpler spin on recipe that’s already pretty popular here on A Saucy Kitchen, so I know you’ll love the flavour combos as much as I do.
The original recipe is one that requires roasting the sweet potatoes whole for almost an hour. Delicious, but not ideal when you’re hungry and in need of dinner. By making sweet potato noodles with a spiralizer you can cook the noodles in minutes.
The avocado tahini sauce is super easy to make is probably my most made recipe that I’ve shared on this blog. Just blend together a ripe avocado, a couple spoonfuls of tahini, a squeeze of lemon juice for brighting and whatever fresh herbs you’ve got on hand (basil is my go to but parsley & cilantro are also great options).
Once your noodles are ready to go just top off with a generous helping of the avocado sauce, a sprinkling of feta and a few extra herbs for good measure.
These sweet potato noodles are filling enough to eat as a meal on it’s own, or served as a side salad to a lager meal.
And hey – if you’re still wanting a little more sweet potato in your life you can always make that chocolate ice cream I was telling you about! You can eat it & feel good knowing about your life choices knowing how many veggies you’re sneaking into your life. 👍
