Tips for Cooking Sweet Potato Noodles
Before the best way on how to Cook Sweet Potato Noodles, here are some pro tips:
1. RIGHT POTATO
Overripe sweet potatoes fall apart, and the noodles become brittle. They don’t spiralize well. So, choose the right sweet potato. Plus, make sure the flesh is firm and doesn’t have many dark spots on the skin.
2. PEEL YOUR POTATOES
When you spiralize the sweet potato, the skin will make things difficult. And the skin is tough. So, peel the sweet potato before spiralizing.
3. MORE PRESSURE
Sweet potatoes have tough flesh, so you need to apply a good amount of pressure while spiralizing; otherwise, it won’t work properly! And, don’t be afraid to use force and make sure you’re using that side handle for leverage.
4. RIGHT PAN
To avoid sticking to the pan and breaking, you should use a non-stick skillet. Most importantly, do not grasp them roughly; they are veggies, so be nice and gentle! Plus, you can use plenty of oil.
Best way to cook sweet potato noodles in microwave
- 2 Sweet potatoes (1/2 pounds)

First, wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly and trim bad spots away. Then to make spiralizing easier, slice off both ends and slice in half through the center. Peel the sweet potato before spiralizing. Sweet potatoes are ready to spiralize.
