    FawnM's Note:

    Sweet potato noodles are nothing more than finely shredded or spiralized raw sweet potato. It has the texture of shredded coconut and makes a good al dente noodle. You can also use a zester to create shorter pieces and use in place of rice. The tangy marinara in this recipe balances the starch present in the raw potato, leaving you with a taste of old-world Italy. Please visit my Web site for the complete article with photo and additional raw food recipes.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place sun-dried tomatoes in warm water to start softening. Set aside. **Raw foodists take care not to use water hotter than 118 degrees.
    2. 2
      Choose to peel the sweet potato or leave the skin on (I leave it on). Shred into lengthy strips using the small side of a standard shredder or spiralizer. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Dry presoaked almonds (soak for 2-4 hours) with a paper towel. Place them in a blender or food processor and blend into a flour-like consistency. Add lemon juice, olive oil, and seasonings. Blend until mixed, adding a splash of water as necessary.
    4. 4
      Chop Roma and sun-dried tomatoes and add to the sauce base. Blend into a thick, creamy marinara sauce.
    5. 5
      Divide sweet potato noodles into two servings and top with tangy marinara sauce. Garnish with additional red pepper flakes if you wish.

      I tried this recipe as one of my first after becoming a raw foodist. It was really good! I added some fresh garlic to the marinara. The sweet potato was sweeter than I thought it would be (raw). I used some leftover marinara to eat with carrots the next day. A keeper for sure!
