Spiralized Sweet Potato, White Bean and Kale Bake

Normally I post videos on Wednesdays, but because I’m all about making my own rules this year and following them, I’m sharing a new recipe.

Okay, full disclosure: I couldn’t wait to share this video on Instagram and Facebook yesterday, so I had nothing left for today — andddd, of course, I was dying to try this recipe out!

I’m loving 2017 so far.

I’m loving 2017 mainly because I feel like my audience is back. I’ll admit, I was scared for awhile in October and November. I felt like everyone went silent and forgot about spiralizing! I get it, every single year it’s like this – my blog readers and social media followers go radio silent around October.

I guess everyone’s Googling, “Halloween spiked witch’s brew” in October. Then November hits and everything shifts to Thanksgiving, people start caring less and less about eating healthy, it’s more about celebrating and bringing something decadent to Friendsgiving. December starts to pick back up, as people start to receive early gifts (ie spiralizers) and come to the site for inspiration.

But let me tell you friends, I thought you had left me for awhile!

Now, you’re back (and more of you, of course – WELCOME!), and I’m happy again to hear your wants, needs, questions, comments.

One of the most common questions I receive and have been receiving in the New Year is about getting your significant other to eat spiralized food. Especially now, when we’re all trying to be our best on the healthy eating front, it can be even more frustrating when your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife isn’t as on board.

Well, last night, I fielded your questions for my husband, Lu, and he answered them. It’s a pretty hilarious Facebook Live episode, so I wanted to devote today’s post to it, especially because we ate today’s recipe for dinner, and I talked all about how I make meals heartier and more satisfying for my 6’3″ tall, 210-pound husband.

Yes, we eat the same things for dinner, like last night, with today’s recipe – it reheats well, and I served it with some baked chicken that I had bought for the week’s dinners, but I pulled an audible and subbed my blog leftovers for my planned dinner.

Out of all the inspiralized recipes this is my favorite...one sweet tater,and your recipe (i added a onion to saute before adding noodles because i had a bunch of onions going bad)...it is a winner..made 4 big meals for me..and i work in an office with guys..who promptly asked for the recipe...no one does that in my office.. i had to spiralize some noodles but this is such a wonderful recipe..i may try it with something other than mozzarella ..it was a bit clumpy...delicious but clumpy..i never post..i just loved this recipe!
Meaghan says:

Since we're social distancing, I'm trying to use everything in my fridge/pantry. I had some sweet potatoes and searched your recipes and now here we are, with another slam dunk recipe from Inspiralized :) This was delicious, so filling, and will last me for several meals. Loved it!

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

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
