Healthy Spiralized Sweet Potato Stir Fry

by Lee Hersh

One of my favorite things to do at the end of the week is take a look inside of my fridge and figure out what the heck I can make with everything inside of it. It’s pretty typical for me to have half an onion, part of a bell pepper, a sweet potato, a chicken breast, maybe some leftover broccoli, etc. So, when in doubt, make a stir fry! If I’m feeling like I want something on the lighter side, I skip the grain and take out my Inspiralizer!

It’s an easy way to eat more veggies and it’s just plain fun. This recipe calls for spiralized sweet potatoes, but you can, of course, use any base noodle that you’d like. A few suggestions include┬ázucchini, butternut squash, or russet potatoes. Like the spiralized sweet potato, you’re more than welcome to add whatever veggies you have on hand as well! The more the merrier. Oh, and don’t forget about the protein if you’re looking for a fuller meal. We suggest chicken, shrimp, or tofu!

Whip up this healthy spiralized sweet potato stir fry in under 30 minutes. It’s packed with veggies and fresh Asian flavors for an easy weeknight dinner.
