Simple Roasted Sweet Potato Noodles | Get Inspired Everyday!

These simple sweet potato noodles have become a permanent fixture in our house for any meal. They’re great paired with these Veggie Scrambled Eggs with Aged White Cheddar for breakfast, and they’re one of my favorite lunches rewarmed with a spoonful of guacamole on top for a quick and easy meal.

I also serve them with dinner in all sorts of ways: you can serve them with an Easy Herb Roasted Chicken or this Honey Mustard Pork Loin, but they’re also great added to all sorts of spiralized recipes. Sometimes when I want to add a bit more bulk to a zucchini noodle recipe, I add in a pan of roasted sweet potato noodles.

The reason it works so well to roast them first is because zucchini noodle recipes usually need a huge skillet to make even enough for 2 people. So when I’m cooking for 4, it works well to cook the sweet potato noodles separately in the oven. Then you can add them in at the end making enough to go around.

These noodles are a simple as twirling them through the spiralizer. This only takes a couple minutes, then you drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Then all that’s left to do is sit back and watch them roast into caramelized perfection.

This simple side dish is a fun take on noodles that adds another veggie to the table as well!



2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes or yams

2 Tablespoons olive oil, or avocado oil

sea salt

optional freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 450ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Thoroughly wash the sweet potatoes and trim any bad spots away. Slice off both ends and slice them in half through the middle, (this makes it easier to spiralize when they’re not so long).

Spiralize the sweet potatoes and place them on the lined baking sheet.

Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Roast them in the oven until just tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Serve immediately.

  1. These are even more delicious with a spiralized onion and some pepper flakes if you like a little heat. They’re also delicious cold for a next-day, lunch snack.

    • I love onion and sweet potato together so I can see why your idea to roast them together would be very tasty, and so glad to hear you enjoyed it!

    • It depends on how long you cook them – if you cook them to just tender most of them stay in noodle shape. If you cook them a bit longer until completely soft, they do fall apart a little more. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know how it goes, or if you have any more questions!

    • You can spiralize sweet potatoes with or without the skin! If you spiralizer is having troubles/isn’t as sharp anymore, I would recommend peeling them!

    • It’s where you run certain veggies through a small appliance and it turns them into noodles! I’m still working on making videos for the site, so for now I think you’ll get a lot of value from Inspiralized which I’ll leave you a link for below. She’s the creator of the best spiralizer out there and she also has tons of resources to teach you how to use it for loads of different veggies. I’m so glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the recipes, and always feel free to ask questions!
