2 cups sweet potato noodles
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp coconut oil or grass fed butter
1 Tbsp coconut flour
⅓ cup unsweetened coconut milk
½ cup goat’s milk cheddar*
¼ cup shredded parmesan*
¼ tsp powdered mustard
¼ tsp black pepper
*you can use ¾ cup of nutritional yeast instead of these 2 ingredients if a completely vegan dish is desired.
Preheat oven to 400. Toss sweet potatoes in olive oil, and transfer to a baking sheet.
Bake 5-7 minutes, until tender.
In a saucepan, combine coconut oil and flour, and whisk until smooth. Continue whisking for about 2-3 minutes.
Add coconut milk, a little bit at a time, and continue whisking until smooth. When all coconut milk is combined, let cook 3-4 minutes.
Add cheese, mustard, and pepper, and stir until cheese sauce is creamy and smooth.
Toss with cooked sweet potato noodles and serve.
