Potato Noodle Bowl with Manchego, Egg & Serrano Ham

Okay, so I’m really into making spiralized potato breakfast bowls.

I’m counting down the minutes until it’s truly Autumn and I can start using sweet potato noodles. And adding things like mashed cranberries or pomegranates (mm!)

While sweet potatoes are pretty much accessible year-round, I like to save them for when there are leaves on the ground and that crispness in the air.

Potato Noodle Bowl with Manchego, Egg & Serrano Ham

I love using potato noodles in breakfast bowls, because they are SO much more fun than regular cubed potatoes.

Whenever I order omelettes or breakfasts at restaurants and the side options are “breakfast potatoes” or “toast,” I always pick “toast, not buttered.” I do this, because I rather have a slice or two of whole wheat toast than about 2 cups of cubed potatoes fried or cooked in half a stick of butter – ick!

It’s rare you go to a restaurant and get a reasonable portion of potatoes with your breakfast – and since I’m an all or nothing kinda gal, I can’t have them on plate – because I’ll eat them…. all! Anyone else like that?

When you spiralize one small red potato, you get a bigger bang for your buck – you get about a cup of potato noodles. If you were to translate one red potato into cubes, it would yield about 1/2 cup.

Plus, you’re eating real, whole foods. A potato grows from the ground.

Now, I recently went to a Spanish themed cooking class and ever since then, I’ve been craving Serrano ham and manchego cheese. I actually bought some to keep in the apartment for a spontaneous wine and cheese night, but instead, as I was thumbing through my refrigerator for blog recipe inspiration, I pulled out the ham and cheese and ended up with today’s recipe.

Now, if this dish doesn’t satisfy your tastebuds, I don’t know what will – the sweet, nuttiness of the manchego cheese with the fluffy scrambled eggs and slightly salty ham pairs wonderfully with the chili powder and garlic seasoned potato noodles.

This potato noodle bowl would make a great hangover breakfast (ha!), a birthday brunch or just one of those cold fall days when all you want to do is curl up with a bowl of heartiness.

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
