This is the first dish I ever made with my spiralizer. I had high hopes for the experiment and boy, it delivered!
This dish is a winner on so many levels. I looks great, tastes fabulous and the noodle texture is incredibly satisfying; it really does feel like a cooked meal. It’s such a fun dish to share. If you decide to include some nuts, like my suggested cashews, it can easily be a filling, satisfying and incredibly healthy main meal.
I’d certainly recommend it if you want to create a special raw celebration dish, fancy treating yourself to something a bit more special one evening, or if you want to impress non-raw friends.
Sweet potato noodles are nothing more than finely shredded or spiralized raw sweet potato. It has the texture of shredded coconut and makes a good al dente noodle. You can also use a zester to create shorter pieces and use in place of rice. The tangy marinara in this recipe balances the starch present in the raw potato, leaving you with a taste of old-world Italy.
