Thanksgiving Swoodles

Thanksgiving Swoodles, Sweet Potato Noodles
Thanksgiving is just days away. If you are looking for a holiday dish with a healthy twist? Look no further, I have one for you. In this recipe the sweet potatoes are first spiralized, then the “swoodles” are lightly roasted with olive oil and fresh sage. When removed from the oven the potatoes are lightly drizzled with maple syrup, and garnished with roasted pecans, crumbled goat cheese and fresh parsley. The sharpness of the goat cheese pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of the potatoes and the saltiness of the pecans.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Thanksgiving Swoodles

prep time: 25 MINScook time: 25 MINStotal time: 50 mins
Here is a delicious and healthy spin on a classic Thanksgiving staple. Sweet potato noodles sweetened with maple syrup and topped with goat cheese and pecans.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and spiralized
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage, minced
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup, depends on your preference
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup goat cheese crumbled, I used 1/2 cup
  • 2/3 cup roasted and salted pecans, I used 1/2 cup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parlsey, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Gently toss spiralized sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt and sage. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil. (baking sheet will be very full) This method will help steam the potatoes.
  3. Roast for approx. 12 to 15 minutes. Remove foil, stir noodles around. Then roast for another 10 to 15 minutes. (I did not roast as long as original recipe)
  4. Remove baking sheet from oven and transfer swoodles to serving platter, Drizzle with maple syrup and then then sprinkle with goat cheese, pecans, and parsley leaves. Enjoy!
  5. *Note****Be gentle with noodles as they can break apart fairly easy when transferring to serving plate.

Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  5. We are a small celebration and keep the menu for the big meal a tidy and traditional celebration. But the feasting continues through the weekend and that is when I can try something new. Making swoodles for everyone would be a tasty delight!
