Ingredients
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes
  • Garlic basil dressing:
  • 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast (you can add more if even more “cheesy” flavor is desired)
  • Juice of ½ large lemon (to taste)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • water to thin out, if needed
Instructions
  1. Spiralize the sweet potatoes and zucchini on small spaghetti setting. Cook sweet potatoes in coconut oil in a saute pan over medium heat until tender (about 10 minutes). Add zucchini and cook until just softened (about 3-4 minutes). Remove to a mixing bowl.
  2. Make garlic basil dressing: combine basil, garlic, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Blend until well-combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  3. Toss sweet potato mixture in dressing. Serve immediately. If serving later hold dressing separate and mix just before serving.
