Today we welcome Alyssa from Simply Quinoa to the blog!

Alyssa has been a friend of mine since we first connected over lunch years ago. We both live in the New York City area (her in NYC and me here in Jersey City) and she suggested we meet up for lunch. We became instant friends since then! She even attended my wedding!

More about Alyssa! Alyssa is the CEO & Founder of the healthy food and wellness website, Simply Quinoa, which is focused on nutritious recipes with an emphasis on plants. Her passion is to create healthy solutions for women through plant-based food, and she loves doing so through healthy recipes, videos and wellness advice.

Spiralized Sweet Potato Chili Fritters

When she first started to eat a plant-centric diet, these resources didn’t exist in a way she found to be helpful, so she created Simply Quinoa to be that resource for others who were struggling with the same thing. Her mission moving forward is to continue to create resources to help her audience enjoy nutritious and delicious foods, give them the tools to build lasting, healthy habits, and show them how to make health and wellness a lifestyle.

From Alyssa:

I’m so excited to be here today sharing this tasty spiralized recipe with you! I’ve known Ali for about 4 years now and I have a special love for her entire community. You guys are always inspiring me to use my spiralizer in new ways – the recipes you come up with are so creative!

Spiralized Sweet Potato Chili Fritters

Today, I felt like I wanted to go a little outside my zucchini comfort zone and show you a recipe that uses spiralized sweet potatoes. As we’re quickly approaching fall, all those hearty root veggies are going to start cropping up and these Chili Spiralized Sweet Potato Fritters would be a perfect way to them use up.

Sweet potatoes are a powerhouse ingredient and one that I try to incorporate into my diet multiple times a week. They’re an incredible source of vitamin A, they’re rich in fiber, they’re filling while still being low in calories, and they taste freaking awesome!

So why not take these babies and turn them into fritters!

Spiralized Sweet Potato Chili Fritters

Flavored with smoky chili powder, and with a slight brightness from the shallots and scallions, this is going to be a go-to this season. You’re also going to love how simple this recipe is to make! It takes just a few minutes to whip up and ends up being such a fun side dish.

If meal prepping is your thing, awesome! Because these spiralized sweet potato fritters are great for meal prep too. I’d recommend bringing a few with for you lunch and spreading them with some cream cheese (I love the non-dairy chive spread from Kite Hill), some hummus, salsa and definitely some avocado. They’re filling, sweet, a little spicy and really fun to eat.

Spiralized Sweet Potato Chili Fritters

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time20 mins


  • 5 cups spiralized sweet potato about 1 large sweet potato
  • ½ cup flour of choice I used quinoa flour
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • ½ cup chopped shallots/red onion
  • 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • Coconut oil for cooking


  • Peel your sweet potato then chop into smaller rounds (about 5 pieces should work).
  • Using your inspiralizer, spiralize the sweet potato and add the noodles to a large bowl. Then using kitchen shears, cut the noodles so they’re easier to handle.
  • To the bowl, add the flour, scallions, shallot, spices and eggs. Stir the mixture together with a spatula or wooden spoon until combined.
  • Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of coconut oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, form small patties out of the sweet potato mixture in your hands.
  • Cook the fritters until golden brown, about 2 – 3 minutes, then flip cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the fritters to a cooling rack.
  • Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.
  • Serve slightly warm as is (or topped with some salsa, chopped cilantro (and avo) – yes!).

Can't wait to try these !
Meaghan says:
You're going to love them!!
Lisanne says:
Would you follow the same process with white potatos?
Meaghan says:
We haven't tried these with white potatoes but we'd love to hear how they come out! In some cases, russets can take a little longer to cook than sweet potatoes - so just keep a close eye on things to prevent any undercooking or burning (as always)!
Lisanne says:
Sally says:
Made with white potatoes, this would essentially be a latke. However, there is so much more water in white potatoes, you probably will want to let them stand, salted, for 10 - 15 minutes and then drain the excess liquid before adding the eggs and flour.
Jill DeVine says:
The picture shows two eggs, and the recipe ingredients says 1 lg eggs, and the directions say to add egg, so how many eggs did you use?
Meaghan says:
Thanks for pointing that out, Jill! The recipe has been updated. Use 2 eggs!
Elliot Fisch says:
Same question as Jill.....but I followed the picture and the fact that it said "eggs). We topped with guacamole. Turned out great.
Meaghan says:
Yes, 2 eggs! Thanks, Elliot!
Denise says:
Can you cook them in an oil other than coconut oil?
Meaghan says:
We haven't tried, but you could definitely give it a shot!
1/2 cup flour and 2 eggs equals a dough too thick to mix with potatoes. Where did I go wrong?

TWIN MAMAS - anything I'm missing?! 👇🏼👇🏼 #twinpregnancy #hospitalbag #31weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #31weekspregnant #expectingtwins #identicaltwins #identicaltwinpregnancy ⁣


we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

what are YOUR favorite ways to enjoy zoodles?! #zoodles #zucchininoodles #spiralizedzucchini #zucchinirecipes #spiralizerrecipes #spiralizerrecipe #spiralizer

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
