Remember how I said I wasn't in my groove? How I wasn't inspired to cook healthy meals let alone eat them? How with all the moving preparation and packing and shock of my mountain dream home turning into a nightmare that I'd just been stuffing my face with peanut butter and honey sandwiches? Well that all changed yesterday when I was perusing some of my favorite blogs and came across that bit of encouragement and rejuvination that I needed. Katie from Yes, I Want Cake shared her recent inspiration from Southern Living magazine: noodles made from sweet potatoes.
I probably would have made her version to the T, except that with all this packing going on I was missing a lot of the ingredients. No broth, no nutmeg, no pecans...but I did have two sweet potatoes sitting on the counter.
So, here is an alternate cheesy version for you:
I didn't have a nice spiralizer (even hiding in a box), so I just further "peeled" the sweet potato into little thin strips, after first removing the outer skin.
This recipe is so easy that I threw it together for a quick weekday lunch for Babycakes and myself. The hardest part of the whole thing was digging out the box with a non-stick pan!! I loved the flavor. I loved the consistency. And I loved the fact that they weren't really noodles.
Thank you Katie, for rescuing me out of my little peanut butter pity party!!
