Asian Style Sweet Potato Noodles – Sweet potato noodles and veggies cooked in an Asian style peanut sauce.
My favourite gadget in the kitchen has to be my spiralizer, I love using it to create delicious salads, veggie rice dishes or noodle dishes like these Asian Style Sweet Potato Noodles. It is such a great tool for getting more veggies into kids’ diets, turning “boring” vegetables into fun noodles. The noodles can also be processed into rice and “hidden” in a range of dishes.
It was only recently that I started to spiralize sweet potatoes, previously I stuck to zucchini, cucumber, apple or carrots. I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to try sweet potato as it is one of the boy’s favourite foods and something we eat at least once a week. I’d say it is probably now my most preferred food to spiralize and this dish has to be my favourite way to enjoy them.
The blog I like to visit most for spiralized veggie inspiration and tips is inspiralized.com. If you haven’t already checked out this blog then I highly recommend it. Here there are a list of all the fruit and vegetables that you can spiralize with details on the best blades to use.
To make the sweet potato noodles I use the blade with the most holes, to produce the thinner noodles. I follow the tips given on inspiralized.com which are:
Peel the sweet potato
Use a good amount of pressure when spiralizing
Use a non stick pan when cooking.
I try to keep my dishes low in salt and sugar so even babies can enjoy the dishes. This dish does contain soy sauce and although I used a low sodium version the sauce is still quite salty and I wouldn’t recommend this to under ones. I added a small amount of chilli, this is of course optional!
