The warmer it gets, the more sad I am about (mostly) bidding sweet potatoes a farewell.
Luckily, we live in a world where most veggies are available year-round, but I like to shop as local as possible, so during the summer time, I don’t make much with sweet potatoes.
Since we’re not quite at summertime, I figured I’d pack as many sweet potato noodle recipes into this blog as possible, before it’s zucchini time!
Of course, spiralized veggie noodles work fabulously as a pasta alternative. However, they can also just be used to reinvent the wheel a bit. Instead of adding cubed veggies into tacos, why not use the Inspiralizer and make them into noodles?
I’m a big veggie taco fan – I can’t ever resist a fried avocado taco, either. When I make my own tacos, I love to jam them full of veggies. But you know what I’m an even bigger fan of?
The breakfast taco.
This breakfast taco has it all: veggies, scrambled eggs, avocado, spiralized sweet potatoes, and of course: BBQ chickpeas. I’m often asked how I “make” my BBQ chickpeas so now, the cat’s out of the bag!
To make the BBQ chickpeas (that I add to quinoa bowls, lettuce wraps, and obviously – breakfast tacos), I simply combine Tessemae’s Matty’s BBQ Sauce with chickpeas in a skillet or saucepot, bring to a simmer, and let cook until the chickpeas are heated through. You could cook for longer and start to soften the chickpeas more and then mash them for an even better consistency, too!
The tacos are easily assembled, so serve ’em up at your next brunch party:
You all know my obsession with Tessemae’s and their BBQ Sauce is my favorite product of theirs and now with summer coming up, I can’t wait to lather up all of my veggies and meats and pop them on the grill! FYI – you can find Tessemae’s products on their website, at Whole Foods and other locations. Check out their website for specific locations near you!
I can’t wait to make these again this week when I’m back in Jersey City. This weekend I’m in Boston for my niece’s college graduation (isn’t that crazy? I’m only 29 but I have a niece who’s graduating college?! Spoiler alert: Lu’s 37 and his oldest sister is almost in her 50s).
