Sweet Potato Noodle Bolognese

Sweet potato noodle bolognese is a tribute to traditional Italian cuisine, with a grain-free plot twist. Vegetable noodles are pasta’s heroic substitute – long golden tendrils that add nutrient density to every dish – and the perfect bed for a bubbling beef sauce pulled from the flame.

Sweet Potato Noodle Bolognese:

Sweet potato noodles:

  • 1 package (16 ounces) of sweet potato noodles, or 2 sweet potatoes spiralized
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup filtered water

Bolognese Sauce:

  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, small dice
  • 1 pound organic grass-fed ground beef
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 & 1/2 cups favorite tomato sauce
  • Sea salt and ground pepper for seasoning
  • Salty cashew seed seasoning recipe, adding as much as desired for flavor

Equipment:

  • Spiralizer (optional)
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula
  • Medium saucepan, with lid
  • Food processor

Instructions:

To make the bolognese sauce, warm the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion, a pinch of salt, and cook for about 10 minutes, using a spatula to regularly flip and keep the onions from burning. Set aside.

In a separate or now-empty frying pan, cook the ground beef, dried rosemary, and a small pinch of salt over medium-high heat until the beef is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Use a spatula during the cooking process to break up the ground beef. Return the onions to the frying pan and fold into the cooked beef. Set aside.

To prepare the noodles, heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the noodles and cook, stirring regularly to keep them from tangling, for 5 minutes.

Add the filtered water and cover the saucepan, allowing the noodles to steam cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring once or twice.

While the noodles are cooking, prepare the salty cashew seed seasoning.

Once the noodles have cooked, add the onions, ground beef, tomato sauce, and as much cashew cheese seasoning as desired, incorporating the noodles and bolognese sauce completely. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.

Serve this sweet potato noodle bolognese hot.

Notes:

  • When choosing olive oil, look for brands like Lucini Italia, which contain 100% olives (no other oils are blended to dilute the product).
