These Sweet Raw Yam Noodles were a quick dinner I just whipped up after a (strangely) long day. The recipe needs no pre-planning because I didn't even know I was going to make it until I stepped into the kitchen and noticed we had yams. I was going to make a salad but then I'm like... "Hey, yams, you be lookin' pretty fine today. I will spirooli you up and cover you in sweet miso sauce then put you in my mouth. What do you think?" I love turning yams, bell peppers, carrots, and other willing veggies into spiralized goodness. It's just so fun and you can be uber creative.

  2. Add whatever else you want.
  3. Then toss in the sesame seeds by hand. Set aside.
For the Yam Noodles

  2. Then cover them with the sauce and them get to know each other for a few minutes.
