Simple Sweet Potato Noodles

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.

Description

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


Ingredients

Scale

2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes or yams

2 Tablespoons olive oil, or avocado oil

sea salt

optional freshly ground black pepper


Instructions

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.

    • 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!

  1. Yum! Thank you. And a tip on zucchini noodles – spiralize them an hour or two before cooking, or even the night before. Salt them, tossing around to get a little salt on everything, and put them in a colander to sweat out a lot of the excess moisture. If I do them the night before, I refrigerate them. Don’t forget to put something under the colander – a lot of watery juice comes out. They have a better texture when sautéed, and they’re not so wet in the pan. And you don’t need that great big pan to get rid of all that excess moisture.

  2. I’m baking chicken & cauliflowe at 350F & want to make the spiralizer sweet potatoes. How long would they have to bake at that temperature?

    • I’m not sure exactly how long it would take, but my best guess would be around 20 minutes. The timing will also depend on how much is in your oven at one time, the more food in the oven, the more time it can take to cook. Also they won’t have quite the same roasted flavor at a lower temperature. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!

    • I would recommend either the Paderno 3-blade or 4-blade models, or the Inspiralizer from Ali at Inspiralized. I had the Paderno before she came out with her machine, and I bought hers for my mom and she absolutely loves it. I’m actually a little jealous because I think the Inspiralizer has a few features that make it better than the Paderno, like how it locks onto the counters and the built in blades. I’m including a link to her website so that you can see her video of it in action!
