I’m always looking for recipes to make for dinner that I’ve never made before. This one from Eating Well Magazine popped up on my Facebook feed, I freaked out a little bit and added it to my meal list immediately. I made it and it was soooooooo delicious and easy (my two favorite qualities in a meal I’m making). My husband has been raving about it ever since. Because of my dietary restrictions and the fact that I’m using bone broth to heal my gut, I adapted the recipe to suit my needs. You can find the original recipe at eatingwell.com.

What’s in the Magic:
- 2 large sweet potatoes (it’s easier if the potato is as close to a beer can shape as you can find)
- 3 large organic free-range eggs, beaten
- 1 cup grated cheese (I used almond cheese)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (Himalayan)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 bunch basil, chopped
- 1 8-ounce package sliced mushrooms
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 5-ounce package baby spinach
- Put on your favorite music and dance. Here’s a playlist I made.
- Boil water in a large pot
- Spiralize the sweet potatoes with a spiralizer or a julianne slicer to make noodles
- Cook the sweet potatoes in the boiling water, gently stirring once or twice, until just starting to soften but not completely tender, about two minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain. (Instead of keeping 1/4 cup of the cooking water I used bone broth instead…your choice)
- Return the noodles to the pot and turn off the heat
- . Combine eggs, cheese, salt, pepper and the reserved water or bone broth in a bowl
- Pour over the noodles and gently toss until evenly coated.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add spinach and basil and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the vegetables to the noodles and toss to combine. Top with a generous grinding of pepper.
- Put it on a plate
- Sit down at the table
- Take three deep breaths
- Express three things that you are grateful for in the moment
