BLT Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

This easy recipe for BLT Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls includes the best parts of a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich without any bread. I used spiralized sweet potato noodles and added avocado to make this fast and healthy dinner. This recipe can be made gluten free, paleo, or Whole 30 compliant.

I finally started using my spiralizer for something other than zucchini. I can't get enough of these vibrantly colored sweet potato "noodles."

Spiralized sweet potato noodles bake fairly quickly {30 minutes} and are almost as fun to eat as curly fries. I admit my digestion feels much better after eating the sweet potato version.

K and I have been making simple recipes for dinner lately, to maximize our time with baby C and recover from the inevitable sleep deprivation. C has been a champion sleeper but the 8 month sleep regression is no joke! Thankfully this recipe takes only a few steps to put together.

I baked a pan of nitrate-free turkey bacon and spiralized sweet potatoes while prepping the other ingredients. Halved cherry tomatoes, crunchy romaine lettuce, avocado and a simple dijon vinaigrette dressing is all you need.
