Sweet Potato Spaghetti
Once again inspired by another blog post (this time the Civilized Caveman), I wanted to try out some sweet potato pasta.
The original recipe makes the pasta tagliatelle/fettuccine style, but I felt I wanted a creamy spaghetti-like dish, so here’s what I did:
Creamy Sweet Potato Spaghetti
| Prep time||15 minutes|
| Cook time||15 minutes|
| Total time||30 minutes|
| Compliance|| Primal|
| Meal type|| Side Dish|
| Main ingredient|| Vegetables|
Gluten free, but contains dairy...
What you need:
- 3-4 sweet potatoes
- 4 tablespoons butter, clarified butter, or ghee
- 1 cup (2.5 dl) creme fraiche
- 0.25 cup (0.5 dl) full fat cream
- 1-2 teaspoon dried basil
- salt (to taste)
- crushed black pepper (to taste)
What to do:
| 1||Peel the sweet potatoes, cut off the ends, and cut them into "spaghetti" using a vegetable spiralizer.|
| 2||Melt the butter/clarified butter/ghee in a pot over medium heat and add the sweet potato "spaghetti".|
| 3||After a few minutes, add the creme fraiche and let it melt.|
Then add the cream and spices and gently stir until all "spaghetti" is coated in creamy sauce.
| 4||Remove from heat once it got the texture you prefer.|
If you wish to, you can omit the dairy altogether.
