Making dinners from scratch each night can be daunting. Which is why I’m always trying to figure my way around it… without resorting to take-out.
My latest discovery?
Frozen sweet potato noodles!
Rather than scrubbing and spiralizing a sweet potato each time you want pasta, you can prepare a large batch all at once, then freeze the leftovers!
Why didn’t I start doing this years ago?
I recommend freezing the noodles into individual portions, so you can simply throw the entire portion into a hot pan, without trying to break apart a chunk of frozen noodles.
You can pair it with a few cubes of frozen curry sauce, for a complete frozen dinner that can thaw in the pan all at once!
Simply throw 4-5 cubes of sauce into a skillet over medium-high heat, along with the noodles and a splash of water (to prevent sticking), then cover with a lid for 3-5 minutes.
Once the noodles and sauce are warm, and tender enough to stir together, add in your favorite chopped veggies, and cook for another 5-8 minutes until everything is piping hot!
In less than 20 minutes, dinner is ready.
Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and serve immediately! (I sauteed a batch of mushrooms on the side, while everything else was cooking… they’re Austin’s favorite!)
Now, if only I had a bigger freezer… I could be set for the month!
