Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1 medium/large sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds
  • Parsley, for garnish
  • Optional: Harissa

Ingredients for Sauce

  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk/coconut cream
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of pepper

1. Peel sweet potato, and chop off both ends. Cut in half crosswise. Spiralize using a small noodle blade.

2. Heat up olive oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add sweet potato noodles, and toss so noodles are evenly coated in oil. Cover and cook for 7-8 minutes until noodles are soft, moving noodles around frequently. 

3. While noodles are cooking, prepare sauce. Blend ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth. You may have to do this a few times. Taste, and add salt as desired, as sauce may have a slight sweetness from coconut milk.

4. When noodles are done, transfer to a bowl. Top with sunflower seeds. In the same pan on low heat, add sauce, and stir until warm, about a minute or so. Pour the sauce over the noodles. Top with parsley and harissa, if desired. Serve warm.
