Serves: 8 servings
Sweet Potato Pasta Salad
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled
1 large zucchini
1 tablespoons coconut oil
¼ cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
¼ cup vegan pesto (regular subs great too if you aren’t vegan)
1-2 tablespoons water
Spiralize the sweet potatoes and zucchini on small spaghetti setting. Cook sweet potatoes in coconut oil in a saute pan over medium heat until tender (about 10 minutes). Add zucchini and cook until just softened (about 3-4 minutes). Remove to a mixing bowl.
Combine pesto and water to thin pesto to a dressing. Add to mixing bowl with cherry tomatoes and toss. Serve immediately. If serving later hold pesto separate and mix just before serving.
Make garlic basil dressing: combine basil, garlic, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Blend until well-combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. If sauce is a pesto versus a dressing add water ½ tablespoon at a time and stir until loose consistency.
