Recipe: Spiralized Sweet Potato w/ Shallots, Feta & Walnuts

 Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite toy: the spiralizer.

What's a spiralizer? It's an awesome kitchen contraption that, among other settings, can turn most veggies - beets, zucchini, sweet potato, squash, etc - into a spaghetti-like form.

I think it's pretty rad, and here are 3 reasons why...

1) It gives you the fun of eating pasta, but is way healthier
2) It's easier (& more fun) than chopping
3) It looks really cool on your plate

So check out this quick and easy spiralized meal that takes just a few minutes to prepare.

What you need:

2 Sweet Potatoes
3 Shallots
5oz Feta
Handful Walnuts
S&P
EVOO
Garlic Powder
A Spiralizer (Paderno is the go-to brand)
 

What to do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Feed both sweet potatoes through a spiralizer on the setting that makes them come out looking like spaghetti. 

Thinly slice shallots & toss in a bowl with spiralized sweet potatoes, evoo, s&p and garlic powder. 

Throw on a baking sheet and into the oven for 7 minutes, then toss around and put back in the oven until they taste done (maybe 5 more minutes).

Meanwhile, toast the walnuts in the pan on the stovetop.

When sweet potatoes/shallots are done, toss in a bowl with feta and serve. Top with walnuts and maybe a drizzle of evoo (if you're using the good stuff!).
