I finally got to try out a new toy I bought last week, the GEFU Spirelli Spiral Cutter. Tonight I made the sweet potato noodle bun from PALEOMG. Paleomg had a guest post from Ali of Inspiralized. She has some amazing recipes I can’t wait to try.
Although I was able to have a positive outcome in the end, there was a lot of broken and wasted sweet potatoes left. The sweet potato got caught in the bottom of the cone and depending on which side I used, the sweet potatoes came out in small pieces instead of long curly spirals I expected. Also, once the sweet potatoes reached a certain point, I could no longer turn them around in the Gefu spiral slicer. I didn’t see any instructions in the box so will look for some videos before completely giving up.
I separated the good from the bad and here is what they looked like after I sautéed them. Not too shabby for my first time, but it looks like the one Inspiralized recommends would work better. And, they are almost the same price.
Here is what our dinner looked like. I served the sweet potato noodle buns as a side dish and they were definitely a hit! So exciting to have a new awesome recipe to add to the regular rotation and many more to try.
