Sesame Sweet Potato Noodles

You know what tastes great? Oodles upon oodles of spiralized sweet potato covered in the yummiest and EASIEST sesame sauce. Yup, it’s a side dish I seriously can’t shovel into my mouth fast enough. Lucky for me (and you) having a humongous bowl of these noodles won’t leave you feeling stuffed and sluggish since they’re low carb and gluten-free! So go ahead and pull out that spiralizer (if you don’t have one I recommend this) and twirl your way to this quick, healthy and tasty dish!

(These noodles make a great accompaniment to salmon, shrimp or chicken!)

Sesame Sweet Potato Noodles

Gluten-free/Vegan/Nut-free

Serves: 2/Prep time: 10 minutes/Cook time: 5 minutes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and left whole
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • pinch of sea salt
  • sesame seeds and green onion to garnish
  1. Using a spiralizer (I used the Paderno spiralizer  with the 3×3 mm and 4×6 mm blades to vary width- this is optional) cut the sweet potatoes and place in a large sautรฉ pan over medium low heat. Cover the pan and allow to lightly soften for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally (no oil needed for this step).
  2. In the meantime, combine the tahini, apple cider vinegar, oils, syrup, red pepper and sea salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. When the sweet potatoes are ready remove from heat and add to the bowl. Toss to evenly coat the noodles with the sauce.
  4. When ready to serve plate noodles and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onion to garnish.
