Have you all picked up a spiralizer yet? I have been loving mine. If you’re scratching your head, check out my zucchini noodles with turkey bolognese, cucumber ribbon salad with yogurt herb dressing, pizza zucchini noodles, or turkey soup with zucchini noodles. It’s a great way to replace pasta and cut down on the overall calorie content of your meal. The bonus is that you’re also eating more nutrient rich vegetables AND they taste great.

Oh and they’re super fun.

I thought about pairing these sweet potato noodles with something. I know plain sweet potato noodles might seem a little dull. Honest to goodness, they’re great on their own. You could totally eat them like this. But they’re unbelievably versatile once you get the hang of the general process of how to make sweet potato noodles. Which is what we are going to talk about today. I’ve been trying to focus on the basics more often – once you get the basics down, cooking is so much easier and so fun.

So here’s how we handle sweet potatoes and make sweet potato noodles with a spiralizer:

  • Scrub scrub scrub until all dirt is gone.
  • Peel (optional)
  • Cut off ends so you have nice flat surfaces on both ends.
  • Spiralize with the spaghetti blade (fine blade or 1/8-inch)
  • Spritz spritz with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Roast until golden brown and soft.
  • Stuff your face.

I purchased the Paderno 3-blade spiralizer probably about a year ago and I adore it. Then Paderno asked me if I wanted to try out their newer 4-blade spiralizer. Umm, YES. I tried it out and decided I loved it. I passed my 3-blade on to a good friend who just started her own food blog, Chocolate Slopes. Edited to add – In efforts to be extremely transparent, I’ve now purchased and tried the Inspiralizer and it is my new favorite – it has genius features that make it a step above (better suction to the counter, better blade system, etc.).

Here are some things I loved about the new 4-blade spiralizer from Paderno:

-The core that is produced is much smaller. This not only cuts down on waste but it also makes it easier to spiralize smaller vegetables such as carrots. And it makes it so you can get those ADORABLE tiny little spirals.

-In terms of storage, the 4-blade takes up less space and is safer, with all blades kept inside when in storage position.

-A fourth blade! Hellloooo “angel hair.” (I haven’t tried this blade yet but I can’t wait to!)
