How to make sweet potato noodles
All you need is some sort of Spiralizer. Let me post some affiliate links here for you to consider if you are in the market for one:
There are cheap spiralizers* that I’ve heard work just fine, require quite some elbow grease though. It’s hard work to get the job done but you’ll get it done eventually. The question is, will you ever want to make sweet potato noodles again, haha.
The one I have is like very similar to this semi professional spiralizer*. I love it. It’s still fairly inexpensive and it does a really great job and getting those perfect curly noodles. It does require some effort too but not even close to as much as with the cheap spiralizer.
If you love vegetable noodles more than life or maybe you have to eat gluten-free and don’t love the rice/quinoa/chickpea pastas on the market I would suggest getting this super handy dandy ultra professional spiralizer*. This obviously assuming you have a kitchen aid stand mixer. If your don’t, get the semi professional spiralizer :)

The most delicious sauce for spiralized sweet potato noodles
The main reason I claim this is The Best Sweet Potato Noodles Recipe is because the sauce is out.of.this.world! I mean, a sauce can always either improves or completely ruin a dish. In this case I think I’ve hit the Jackpot. This Avocado Cilantro Sauce joins the Out of This World Tahini Herb Sauce on the list of best of Green Healthy Cooking sauces.
The texture, the taste, the spice, the color simply everything harmonizes in this sauce. Now imagine you drizzle it on top of delicious quick-sautéed spiralized sweet potato noodles and a simple juicy chicken breast. Yuuuuuummm!!!
