Recipe type: Vegetable Side Dish
Serves: Serves 4 side dishes
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 apple, peeled
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ Navel orange, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/16 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp minced chives
  1. Spiralize both the sweet potato and apple. When spiralizing the apple, attach the apple onto the coring blade where the apple core is. Alternatively, core the apple using an apple corer. Toss the apple spirals with lemon juice.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat and heat until the butter browns. Stir in the oil, add the potato spirals and carefully toss to coat, using a large metal spoon or tongs. Continue to turn every minute or so for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the apple spirals and orange juice. Cook for another 5 minutes or until both the potato and apple is 'al dente'.
  4. Mix the brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt together and toss into the potato and apple 'noodles'. Top with the chives and serve warm.
