Sweet Potato Alfredo

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Alfredo

This Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Alfredo is made with sweet potatoes, not traditional pasta! It’s grain-free, vegetarian, and vegan, too!

To make, you’ll need a mandoline or spiralizer (unless you’ve got some serious knife skills). These are two kitchen staples I have in my house to turn veggies, like zucchini and sweet potatoes, into delicious noodles. It’s like Play-Doh for adults – and we get to eat the art.

  • 3 large sweet potatoes , peeled and spiralized
  • 10 stalks asparagus
  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 1 batch Vegan Alfredo Sauce (see below)
  • 10 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped


  • Peel and spiralize the sweet potatoes into thin noodles. Chop the woody ends off asparagus and discard. Chop the asparagus into bite-sized chunks.
  • In a skillet, add 2 teaspoons (10 mL) coconut oil and bring to medium-high heat. Add baby spinach and chopped asparagus and cook until the spinach has wilted and the asparagus has turned bright green, about 3-5 minutes. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • Add remaining coconut oil to skillet and add spiralized sweet potato noodles. Cook on medium-high heat, until sweet potato noodles begin to soften and are almost al dente, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Pour vegan alfredo sauce into pan and toss to combine. Continue cooking sweet potatoes until sauce has thickened and the noodles are al dente, about 8 minutes. Add splashes of water to thin the sauce, if desired. Add the sautéed spinach and asparagus to the dish, along with the chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and mix to combine. Scoop noodles into bowls and serve.

Course: Condiment/Sauce
Servings: 1 cups
Calories: 546kcal


  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight and strained*
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 6 cloves garlic

*Cashews must be soaked in advance, otherwise pour boiling water over cashews in a bowl and let sit for 1 hour. If you do not have time for this, or if you can’t have nuts, you can also substitute the cashews for hemp hearts. Hemp hearts require no soaking before use.
