Forget noodles, here’s spoodles! Courgetti (spaghetti made from spiralized courgettes) is old news. A new way to kick a spiralizer into gear is to make spoodles – sweet potato noodles. Spiralized raw sweet potato are quick to create and can be enjoyed either raw, for a crunchy treat, or lightly fried as a healthier alternative to pasta (great for those low-carbing and useful for a diabetic veg dishes). Try spoodles soaked in tangy red wine vinegar as a light lunch or an alternative side dish to the usual salad, or lightly fried Spoodles which pair well with pasta sauces. Vibrant in colour and good to the waistline for that summer body, sweet potatoes are a fun way toward ‘five a day’ and are packed with vitamin A, potassium, fibre and vitamin C.
