Note from Ricardo

Use the finest side of a box grater to grate and effectively purée the garlic and ginger.

Pre-cut sweet potato spirals are available in the salad section of most grocery stores (along with other pre-cut vegetables, such as squash, zucchini and beets). You can replace them with julienned sweet potatoes.
