Spice up your weekly dinner routine with these spicy Asian style sweet potato noodles which whip up in just 30 minutes in one pot!


Ingredients

For the Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce

For the Noodles:

  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 ounce bag baby spinach leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • Dash of cayenne (if desired)
  • Pinch of salt (to taste)

To Serve:

  • Fresh lime wedges, chopped almonds

Instructions

  1. Add all the sauce ingredients to a small mixing bowl and use a wire whisk or fork to mix until creamy.
  2. Use a spiralizer to create noodles from the sweet potatoes.
  3. In a large, deep skillet add the olive oil and sweet potatoes and turn on medium-high heat. Saute for 2 minutes, tossing to coat the potatoes in oil.
  4. Stir in the almond butter sauce, bell pepper, broth, and garlic. Saute for 2 minutes, tossing pasta to coat in the sauce.
  5. Stir in the spinach and ginger. Cook for 3-4 minutes until spinach is all wilted and mixed into the noodles.
  6. Squeeze in the lime juice and saute another 3-5 minutes or until sweet potatoes are slightly tender but still hold their shape. (Don’t overcook or else your sweet potato noodles will fall apart! They should still have a little bit of a bite to them when you taste one.)
