After posting up that Bacon Shrimp Scampi recipe and polling my readers, it’s evident now that y’all prefer simpler recipes. That’s great, because with the spiralizer, even the simplest of recipes have such great flavor.
Today’s recipe calls for sweet potato noodles simmered in a tomato sauce. And wow, simmering sweet potato noodles (as opposed to pan-frying or boiling) in a savory sauce is my new jam.
First off, you can find this recipe over at The Lemon Bowl, where I guest posted yesterday! Liz (of The Lemon Bowl) is one cool mamma – plus, she recently had a beautiful baby and is now trying to shed the baby weight with healthy recipes. Very inspirational, I hope you check out her blog.
As for this recipe, it’s simple – sweet potatoes, chicken, and artichokes. Who doesn’t love those three fresh ingredients? Plus, in true Inspiralized fashion, we’re enjoying the sweet potatoes in an inventive way – as noodles, of course.
The sweet potatoes simmer in the tomato sauce and soften just perfectly, absorbing the slight sweetness of the tomatoes. The chicken and roasted artichokes add the perfect balance of veggies and protein to make a complete meal that’s filling, seasonal and most importantly: easy on the hips!
If you haven’t tried sweet potato noodles yet, I encourage you to start now. You can saute them in a little olive oil, boil them, bake them or, in this case, simmer them in a sauce. Molto bene, trust me!
Who has tried sweet potato noodles? What do you think?
