Sweet Potato Egg Breakfast

Sweet Potato Noodle Egg Nests

I’m pretty sure that my spiralizer is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets of all time. I have made noodles from different fruits and vegetables: broccoli stems, zucchini, apples, and cucumbers to name a few. For this recipe I wanted to try something new; try to incorporate veggie noodles into a breakfast meal! Thus came the sweet potato veggie noodle hash browns! Add an egg and you have a great protein + carb mix!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled with ends cut off.
  • 4 eggs (2 per person)
  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Attach the sweet potato to the spiralizer and begin spiralizing! For further instruction watch this YouTube video. Divide the noodles into four piles (should be about a small handful or <1 cup).
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the noodles to the skillet, making sure to keep them in four separate piles. Gently hollow out a circle in the middle of the pile for the egg to settle. Let the noodles cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown on the bottom and form holding.
  4. Gently flip the noodles over and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy (like hash browns).
  5. Crack eggs into middle of hollowed area of noodle and cook 2-3 minutes, or until desired consistency. If you don’t like a runny yolk, you may want to flip the “egg nest” over to allow the yolk to cook.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy! 

Santé!

Broccoli Waldorf Salad

Waldorf Salad with Broccoli and Apple Noodles

About a year ago, I remember cruising through Pinterest and stumbling on something amazing…something that would forever change food for me. That something was a zoodle. For those who have never checked out Inspiralized, stop reading this post and go check it out right now.

Thanks to Pinterest and Inspiralized, my spiralizer is one of my most prized kitchen gadgets. My love of produce and noodles have finally been united as one. I’m pretty sure that I have not stopped talking about this gadget since I discovered it.

I’ll be honest, I tend to spiralize the same vegetables over and over. I love zucchini, seedless cucumbers, and carrots. Today, it was time to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.

Since my wonderful boyfriend, Tony, has been away in California for two weeks on training, I thought it would be nice if I made him some of his favorite foods when he returned. Broccoli Waldorf salad is on that love list and also seemed like the perfect recipe for me to spiralize!

Waldorf Salad ingredients

Start with your basic ingredients, washed and ready to go. I start by cutting the florets off the broccoli and saving them to throw into the salad later. Then I make sure the broccoli stem has a clean cut on both ends.

Attach the broccoli in the spiralizer and begin spinning away!

Collect the broccoli noodles (broodles?) on a plate.

spiralized apple

Remove the stem from the apple and attach the apple into the spiralizer.

Be careful the you have your apple attached correctly, you don’t want to spirals any apple seeds!

Once you have your apple and broccoli noodles, cut the noodles (broodles and appoodles) to the desired length.

sliced onion

Slice onion, preferably to the thickness of the noodles.

Next, cut grapes in half and mix all ingredients (including sunflower seeds and broccoli florets) in a bowl with dressing.
