Ingredients:

  • One large purple sweet potato (any variety of sweet potato will work)
  • Two medium zucchinis
  • Two large carrots
  • One large red bell pepper, de-stemmed and seeded
  • cup of sliced crimini mushrooms
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • One shallot
  • One bunch of scallions, chopped
  • One thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger
  • Three tbsp. of coconut aminos (soy sauce or tamari will also work)
  • ¼ of a tsp. of garlic powder
  • ¼ of a tsp. of onion powder
  • ½ of a tsp. of lime juice
  • ¼ of a tsp. of red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • Pinch of pepper (to taste)
  • Vegetable broth for sauteeing
  • Optional: salt to taste if needed
  • Avocado for serving

How to make:

  1. Slice the mushrooms and use a spiralizer to spiralize the sweet potato, zucchinis, carrots, and red bell pepper, then steam the spiralized sweet potato for five minutes. (I like this simple spirlizer and this fancy Veggie Bullet!)
  2. Mince the garlic, ginger, and shallot, then sautee them in a large pot in vegetable broth for five minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms and sautee for three minutes, then add the spiralized zucchinis, carrots, and red bell pepper, and sautee until the veggies are mostly cooked through (about five minutes).
  4. Add the steamed spiralized sweet potato, chopped scallions, coconut aminos, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, lime juice, salt (if needed), and pepper to pot, then stir to evenly combine.
  5. Once all of the ingredients are soft and fully cooked, serve with avocado and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • If your carrots are too thin to spiralize, simply shred or julienne them instead.
