    About this recipe: Ribbons of sweet potato are tossed in beurre noisette (brown butter) and garnished with crisp sage leaves in this delicious side dish.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and halved crosswise
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more as needed
    • 55g butter
    • 9 fresh sage leaves
    • salt to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:9min  ›  Ready in:19min 

    1. Slice sweet potato into spaghetti-like ribbons with a spiraliser.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add sweet potato ribbons; cook, stirring often and adding more oil to prevent sticking, until starting to soften, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
    3. Heat butter in the same pan until melted and foaming, about 1 minute. Add sage leaves; swirl until butter is a rich caramel colour and leaves are crisp and dark green, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove sage leaves from the butter. Add sweet potato; stir to coat well.
    4. Season sweet potato with salt and garnish with crisp sage leaves.

    Bomb. I was looking for a way to use up the Sweet Potato Ribbons I got from Trader Joes... This was easy and delicious. Probably not the healthiest considering the amount of butter, but oh well!  -  27 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is officially on our Thanksgiving menu!!! Too easy and delicious to pass up. I used the large toothed plate on my spiralizer, so the ribbons were pretty thick. They took a bit longer to cook than written. Thank you for the recipe.  -  07 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
