You know how some people’s comfort food is chocolate? Yeah, well mine is carbs. Carbs carbs carbs. Pasta, bread bowls, potatoes- you name it, I love it. When I was little and I came home from a tough day of school, my mom would always whip up a bowl of pasta for me. Flash forward to now, and I still want some comfort pasta. That was the scenario on this night, but we did not have any pasta in our pantry, so a little bit of me cried inside (more than a little).
Luckily for me, I had my spiralizer, which is also a foodies best friend. I use this thing for everything, but specifically zoodles. I never knew that I could create sweet potato noodles out of it until now, and I feel like I’ve been missing out on so much in life. With the spiralizer, all you have to do is take the veggie, stick it in the slot, and crank! (Maybe it’s more complex than that but you know what I’m saying, right?) Sweet potatoes are extremely nutrient dense, and pack a ton of vitamins per serving. So… what better way to get them in than through noodles?
INGREDIENTS (Serves one):
1 small-medium (depending on size) sweet potato, washed and peeled
1/4 diced yellow pepper
6-8 brussel sprouts, chopped
One egg, over easy
1/4 cup feta cheese
Optional- roasted chickpeas and baked tempeh
Few handfuls of green of choice- I used arugula in the photo
1.) Turn your stove to a low-medium heat, and add your oil. Let the oil spread around on the pan, and then add your onions + brussel sprouts.
2.) Using your spiralizer, turn your potato into noodles and set aside. Depending on the blade size you use, you might want to chop the noodles into smaller pieces for easier eating.
3.) Once the onion has turned golden brown, add in the sweet potato noodles and stir that around consistently for three-five minutes, or until they gain the texture of your choice.
4.) On a bed of arugula or some green of your choice on a plate, place the mixture and combine everything with the green.
5.) In the pan, crack an egg and cook it over easy. Once the egg is done, place it on top of the sweet potato noodle mixture. Add the feta cheese and any other toppings of choice (I added tempeh and chickpeas to the dish for extra protein)- enjoy!
