Peanutty Sweet Potato Noodles — A #glutenfree recipe with a tangy and addicting peanut sauce. A quick & easy veggie-packed dinner idea!
While some may complain about losing an hour of sleep when we set our clocks forward, I take it as the opportunity to eat pancakes at a more reasonable hour than my usual 5 AM rise and shine.
And what better way to “Spring” forward then with a snow shower. Just pretend you can actually see the snow from my afternoon walk.
Just in case you’re curious “hand gel” is code word for “hand sanitizer”… After squirting half the bottle and wondering why there were no bubbles in my mixing bowl pedi bath. At least I should be free of any potential foot fungus for a while.
Now that I thoroughly grossed you out, let’s talk about food!
After getting a Veggetti for Christmas, I’ve been on a mission to make every vegetable that passes my hands into noodles. Cucumbers. Zucchini. Squash. Carrots. And now, Sweet Potatoes.
I’ve been eating sweet potatoes literally everyday lately. Can’t get enough! And much like any other food, I can’t eat it without a dosage of peanut butter. So it was only natural to pair the two in noodle form!
- 1 small sweet potato
- 1 tsp coconut oil (or olive oil)
- 1 Tbsp water
- 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
- ½ Tbsp Tamari (or soy sauce)
- ½ Tbsp lime juice
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp fresh ginger
- Protein of choice (egg, chicken, tofu, etc)
- Wash and dry sweet potato.
- Use spiralizer or veggie peeler, peel sweet potato into noodles.
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add sweet potato noodles and cook about 3 minutes.
- Add tablespoon of water, and cook another 2-3 minutes, or until noodles are tender.
- In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
- Turn heat off skillet, and add half the peanut sauce. Mix to combine.
- Portion noodles and top with remaining peanut sauce.
- Serve with protein of choice & enjoy!
And you can’t put an egg on top of something and not have some #yolkporn going on.
Aww yeahh baby. Pea-nutty, yolky goodness.
Eating with chopsticks automatically makes you look either highly intelligent or slightly challenged. 9 times out of 10 I opt for a fork half way through.
Make it a great day!
