Sweet Potato and Zoodles

photo 1I hosted a party on Saturday to showcase some of my favorite recipes and to show people that you can have treats that tastes sinful, but are still made with high quality ingredients.  I wanted to do a recipe demo, utilizing the random foods that I had on hand. I was hoping that this would inspire people to come up with their own fun recipes by just taking look around their own kitchen and seeing what’s local and fresh!

We had just bought a bunch of fresh zucchini, squash, and sweet potatoes. So, I decided to bust out my spiralizer and make some raw noodles and give a sweet twist to your typical spaghetti and tomato sauce. This was a huge hit and it was SO simple to make. There are also so many additions that could be made to make this more fun and change up the flavors! I love how fresh and clean this tastes and makes you feel!

Ingredients:

  • 2 baked sweet potatoes (skin after cooked and cooled)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup soaked cashews (soak as long as you can, optimal is 8-12 hours)
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup water

Directions:

  • Puree all ingredients in a food processor. Start with 1/2 cup water and add slowly to get desired consistency.photo 4
  • This would also be great with a red pepper pureed in, a little cayenne pepper, tomatoes…there is really so much that you can do with this recipe. Add some chunks of cashews to give it a little texture too!
  • I mixed this in with some zoodles (zucchini noodles-spiralizers are awesome by the way!) and topped it with crack himalayan salt and fresh black pepper.
