Sweet potato noodles with lime satay sauce

Posted: July 21, 2017

Sweet potato noodles are an excellent substitute for grain-based ones, and you can make them soft or al dente as you prefer. This recipe takes about ten minutes to make.


2 sweet potatoes, peeled and spiralised

2 cups mushrooms, sliced

4 cloves garlic, smashed or cut small

1 coin of ginger, peeled and chopped very small or smashed

2 handfuls spinach

1 handful fresh coriander, chopped


2 heaped tablespoons peanut butter

juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon tamari

A pinch of salt (optional)

1/2 tablespoon agave syrup

1/2 cup almond milk

Heat a splash of water in a wok; you can also add a tablespoon of peanut oil. When it is steaming, add the sweet potatoes, mushrooms, garlic and ginger. Cook until softened (about 5-10 minutes). Add the spinach and stir in to wilt.

Meanwhile, blend the ingredients for the sauce in a small blender. When the noodle mixture is cooked, serve with the sauce drizzled over the top and sprinkle with coriander.

Here in Cornwall the blackberries are just starting, and there are apples to scrump from the track down to the beach - good for counteracting all the pasties and ice cream we've been eating 😬 - so it seems a good time to mention that:

- apples may seem everyday, but they contain thousands of phytochemicals which work synergistically, boosting each other's power. The vitamin C content in an apple isn't very high, for instance, but is worth three 500mg vitamin C pills thanks to the other micronutrients that come with it. And a fresh-picked apple is worth two cold-storage supermarket apples, so now is a good time to be eating them.

- the rich colour of blackberries and other berries indicates high concentrations of antioxidant, antiinflammatory, anticancer polyphenols. No chance of getting scurvy with these around 💜

If you are after a wheat and/or dairy free crumble, I love oats and almond flour for the topping, and Alpro soya custard to go with it.
