Sweet Potato Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Sweet Potato Noodles with Peanut Sauce

The latest and greatest vegetable to be spiralized, sweet potatoes make hearty noodles that stand up well to thick sauces. Topped with a creamy and rich peanut sauce, this recipe makes the perfect noodle bowl to keep you full while not making you sleepy for the rest of the day. When serving, lay out toppings for each person to customize their own dish. Go crunchy with fresh green onions and chopped peanuts, or throw on an extra layer of flavor with additional Sriracha or herbs.


Peanut Sauce Sweet Potato Noodles (30 Minute)

This sweet potato noodles which have cooked until tender with onions and broccoli. They then have tossed with a creamy peanut sauce created out of nutty pb for creamy-richness, maple to get a sweet touch, fresh-lime, soy sauce to get salty thickness and optional sriracha for some zing.

We need fine al dente sweet potato noodles. Should you overcook the noods, they basically break-down into mashed sweet-potatoes with a killer-peanut-sauce plus a few broccoli thrown in for good measure.

For the note, flavorful, but we’re trying to get Peanut Sauce Sweet Potato Noodles here. So err on the side of undercooking since they will continue to cook after you take them away from the heat.

Sweet potato noodles + sweet and spicy peanut sauce

Do you ever have one of those weeks where all of your worlds collide and explode in magical kind of glittery bomb of greatness? You know, one of those weeks where things that you have been working towards for months or years, all come to a head in a couple of days, and you wonder why the universe couldn't spread it out a little bit? I had one of those weeks this week, and while it required lots of deep breaths, it was so very exciting. Two major life things I have been working on for such a long time both came to a head this week, and hopefully, fingers and toes crossed, they will all work out and I will be able to share both with you soon.

Sometimes when life gets like this, I put my hippy astrology hat on and do some googling about horoscopes, and moon phases . When I used to work in the service industry, there was no better stage for the craziness than being a server in a restaurant to experience the effects the full moon can have on people. I would be able to tell it was a full moon, every single month, just by the way people were acting. It's kind of hard to describe, but like clockwork, I witnessed this unique kind of craziness, and now I am such a big believer in the energy of the full moon.

Well, with the week I had this week, I had to jump on the internet and see what lunar events were happening . and I knew it. There was not only a full moon but a lunar eclipse happening this week, which is meant to be a more potent event than a full moon. This one specifically was meant to facilitate big life changes. Letting go of the old, things that don't serve you anymore, to embracing the new. I can always get on board with that, so thank you full moon lunar eclipse for that big push this week.

These sweet potato noodles don't have much in common with full moon lunar eclipses. But, being such a noodle lover, they are a great way for me to experience a thai kind of noodle dish, with a healthier kind of noodle. Out with the old, and in with the new? Maybe . for the days when I want a lighter, healthier noodle it can be )

  • olive oil

Spicy Peanut Sweet Potato Soba Noodles

This simple soba noodle dish is one of those meals that I seem to turn back to time and time again. I have a version of this salad way back in the archives and I make it often when I’m feeling like preparing something easy yet filling and healthy for lunch or dinner. The spicy peanut sauce is divine and with a bite of fresh cilantro, crunchy peanuts, and raw sweet potato “noodles” thrown into the the mix this salad is winner. Pour a glass of wine or crack open a beer and head to your kitchen.

Spicy Peanut Sweet Potato Soba Noodles

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Serves: 4

  • 1 medium sized sweet potato, peeled
  • 6 ounces buckwheat soboa noodles

  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
  • fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons water + additional to thin if necessary

  5. Dived between bowls and top each bowl with cilantro, peanuts and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce over Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Rice

Please tell me that I am not the only girl who leaves her keys in the door. Or loses her car in parking lots. Or drops her wallet on the sidewalk. Distracted is my middle name, but committing all three of those mistakes over the past few weeks is a personal record.

I suppose I have to tell you the stories now, don’t I? I’ll start with the best one. A couple of weeks ago, I took Cookie outside before dragging myself to bed. I was exhausted—apparently so exhausted that I left my keys in my door when I shut it behind me. Dumb, right? The next morning, I woke up and searched around for my keys. I couldn’t find them in any of the normal spots. It finally occurred to me to check the door. Aha! Keys. Relief.

Then I walked down the front steps, looked over to my left, and saw my car. My car was parked in front of the fire hydrant with a white ticket flapping underneath the window wiper. That’s not where I parked my car, you guys. I walked over to my car with trepidation and peered through the windows.

Everything inside my car seemed to be in order. I got in and noticed that the seat had been scooted back a few inches. All I know about the thief (borrower?) is that he’s a few inches taller than me, drives a manual transmission and has an iPhone, apparently, since he took my cord with him. That leaves a lot of suspects.

I’m still wondering what that stranger did in my car. Maybe he just wanted to cruise around the neighborhood. Maybe he ran out of beer and decided to drive over to the gas station. Maybe he intended to steal it, but quickly realized that stealing my beat-up car was a waste of time and brought it back. Maybe he dropped off some drugs. Let’s hope not. I just wish he’d dropped off the stuff in my trunk at Goodwill while he was at it.

The other stories aren’t so exciting. I was thirty minutes late to Bev‘s baby shower (she’s having twins!) because I lost my car on The Plaza. Then my wallet fell out of my grandmother’s little black purse in between Sur la Table and the corner. Thankfully, a good samaritan found the wallet and brought it to customer service, which is what I would have done for him. All said and done, I’ve really lucked out in all of these situations. I have a sixty dollar ticket to pay but that’s not the worst that could have happened.

Sometimes I wish I had someone around to catch my silly mistakes in real time. I make a lot of them. I do have you all, though. You let me know when I list garlic twice in a recipe, or when there’s a little too much pumpkin in my pancakes. You leave feedback for me in the comments section and tweet/instagram/email me photos of the recipes you’ve made at home, which makes me super happy. Even if I don’t respond right away, know that I’m listening and glad you’re here.

This recipe, for example, was inspired by a convincing comment left on my sweet potato fries recipe. Carla said, “These are wonderful and are even more unbelievable with THAI SPICY PEANUT SAUCE. Sorry to yell, but these two things were born for each other. Ketchup, honey, mayo based sauces do not do them justice.”

She sounded like she was onto something, so I grabbed a bottle of San-J Thai peanut sauce at the store and roasted up some sweet potato fries. She was indeed onto something. I did my best to recreate San-J’s version based on the ingredient list. I switched from fries to roasted sweet potatoes and made it a full meal by adding jasmine rice, red bell pepper, cilantro and chives. Thanks, Carla!
