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
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!).
