Have you tried sweet potato noodles? I often use zoodles aka zucchini noodles in my recipes, but after stumbling across these pre-spiralized sweet potato noodles at Whole Foods, I had to give them a try… and they did not disappoint!


I am constantly amazed at how the simplest of dishes can be so satisfying. This recipe only uses 7 ingredients and can be whipped up in as little as 20 minutes. Also, if you like ground turkey, be sure to check out my recipes for Skillet Turkey Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy and Italian-Style Turkey Burgers!


Sweet potato noodles are a great option if you are on a grain-free diet. Even if you aren’t, you’ll love this simple and tasty dish! It can easily be made meat-free by subbing the ground turkey for grilled mushrooms or tofu, simply sauté them in a little oil or broth before adding the other ingredients.


I love using my spiralizer to make veggie noodles, but it’s nice to have the option to skip a step and have them all spiralized and ready to go. If you don’t own a spiralizer, call your local Whole Foods and ask if they have pre-spiralized veggies. It’s a huge time-saver, plus a great way to change meals up in a healthy and delicious way.

Sweet Potato Noodles Skillet! A quick and easy, one pan meal featuring savory ground turkey, spinach, and sweet potato noodles.



  • 1 lb of ground turkey
  • 2 big handfuls of baby spinach
  • 67 oz of sweet potato noodles
  • 3-4 tbsp of veggie or chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • Himalayan salt to taste


  1.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey to the skillet along with salt, cumin, and pepper.
  2.  Halfway through cooking the ground turkey, add the sweet potato noodles. Cook for 5-7 minutes, tossing with a spatula. You can add a few tbsp of broth to prevent noodles from sticking.
  3.  Add in baby spinach and cook for a few more minutes, or until the spinach is wilted.


I used pre-spiralized sweet potatoes from Whole Foods in this recipe, but feel free to use a spiralizer and make your own sweet potato noodles.

If you aren’t a fan of sweet potatoes, feel free to substitute them with zucchini noodles! Adjust cooking time as needed.

To make this meal meat-free, use diced mushrooms or tofu instead of ground turkey.

    • Hi, Carolyn!

      The spiralized sweet potato I used in the recipe comes in a container of 10 oz from Whole Foods: I used a little over half of it to make this dish. Feel free to adjust the amount to your liking, as this recipe is pretty adaptable. This is an older recipe, so I don’t have the exact amount of servings that it made, but it fed my family of 3, plus we had leftovers. I will be sure to post the approx. serving amounts in my newer recipes and will update this dish when I make it again!

      • Thank you! My husband says this is one of his favourite meals now. I’m following The Acid Watcher Diet by Dr. Aviv, and some of your recipes are compatible. I’m glad I found you!

  • Love love love love it!

    Made this recipe for lunch today for my husband and I. I didn’t have sweet potato swirls for noodles, so I improvised and used an apple corer/peeler and made them myself LOL

    Turned out great! I *could* have given the potato’s another minute or so in the skillet because my attempt resulted in some thicker potato swirls but ultimately the flavour was wonderful and I will absolutely be adding this to our GERD friendly diet!

    Thank you for yet again providing a wonderful recipe!
