YOU SHOULD GET PUMPED.
You should get pumped for this recipe. Why? It’s pasta. No- it’s better than pasta. IT’S SWEET POTATO PASTA. I freaking love sweet potatoes, and I think I’ve found my new favorite form: noodles. Not only do they grow in size (feels like more food- just me?), but they make pasta acceptable any day. Not that is isn’t normally, but you get what I’m saying.
What’s so great about this recipe is the fact that it’s so customizable. If you wanna make it more Asian-flavored, go ahead. Italian? All power to ya. You’ll see that I didn’t really have a theme going into this one, mostly because I had a ton of leftovers to use up. Tempeh and black beans with avocado and roasted veggies is kind of Mexican, right??????
I don’t know about you, but I got my eye on that cream sauce. I normally buy 0% greek yogurt because I like the tartness, but I decided to venture out and try 2% as a suggestion from a friend. Holy cow was I missing out. It’s so creamy and too damn good. This meal isn’t fully vegan because of the sauce, but that’s okay- it’s completely worth it. Get pumped people, and whip out your spirilizer 😉
- 1 large sweet potato, spirilized (or 2 medium potatoes)
- 1 roma tomato, diced
- 1 tbsp olive oil (or coconut oil)
- 1 cup 2% greek yogurt
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Baked tempeh
- Roasted vegetables
- Black Beans
- 1.) Pre-heat your pan to a medium heat and melt the oil on there, making sure it mixes around evenly.
- 2.) Spirilize your sweet potato(es) into a large bowl, and chop up so they're easier to eat.
- 3.) Once the pan has heated, pour your noodles on the pan and stir for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy and tender.
- 4.) About fifteen minutes into the cooking process, stir in your diced tomatoes and let them cook a bit.
- 5.) Once the potatoes are ready, turn the pan off but keep it on the warm burner to keep them warm.
- 6.) Toss with the sauce and enjoy!
- 1.) In a bowl, add in the yogurt, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder.
- 2.) Mix well. Once the noodles are ready, toss with the noodles, coating them evenly. Serve in a bowl with your additional fix in's (idea's listed above) and enjoy.
