The Joy of Spiral Noodles
Spiralizer, oh, spiralizer… where have you been ALL of my life??
Just a few months ago I discovered how to make and how to cook sweet potato noodles, zucchini noodles, and just about any other kind of veggie noodle.
My. Mind. Was. Blown!
It is SO easy! And instead of having a plateful of heavy, gluten-laden, not-good-for-you pasta noodles, you have a full serving or two of nutritious spiralized vegetable noodles.
To be honest, my mother-in-love and I were experimenting with my new Christmas present when these Cilantro Lime Sweet Potato Noodles were created.
*That’s the BEST way to come up with a recipe… by using what you have on hand in the kitchen!*
I was shocked to see how easy it was to cut a hard vegetable, like sweet potatoes, into perfect spaghetti-style noodles.
What Type of Spiralizer is Best to Make Sweet Potato Noodles?
There are numerous types of spiralizers, but a tabletop spiralizer with a suction-grip is my recommendation… especially when it comes to making sweet potato noodles!
The handheld spiralizers are smaller, so storage is easier, but are also very difficult to use. It is almost impossible to spiralize hard vegetables, like carrots or sweet potatoes.
However, the tabletop spiralizers with suction-grips lock onto the countertop to make sure the spiralizer does not slide around and allows you to get perfectly spiralized sweet potato noodles in minutes!

- You can cook them for as little or as long as you like to get your desired tenderness out of the noodle.
- It literally takes less than 5 minutes!
