Paleo Sweet Potato Noodles

I have all the necessary props, but I *still* find myself a bit remedial when it comes to julienning and thinly slicing vegetables. I love my mandoline, and have a great cut-proof glove to wear when I'm using it. I still wind up with some pieces that are too thick, no matter what blade or how much patience I use.

That disclaimer said, please feel free to ignore some of the chunkier noodles in my pic. I was just excited to finally get around to trying sweet potato noodles. I have made chips for nachos with the taters, but never thought to use them as a noodle replacement.

I borrowed Civilized Caveman's use of cinnamon and fresh sage for seasoning, and they were delicious! The kids couldn't get enough of them, and I will definitely make these again.

Paleo Sweet Potato Noodles
adapted from Civilized Caveman Cooking

2 medium sweet potatoes, washed & peeled
2 tbs. ghee or coconut oil
1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
2 tbs. chopped fresh sage
1 tbs. ground cinnamon

Using a mandoline, slice sweet potato lengthwise into thin strips. Then cut strips with a knife to create noodles.

Melt ghee or coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato and cook, stirring often, until soft (about 5 minutes). Season with salt, sage and cinnamon to taste.
