Sweet Potato Noodles |

I once quit my job to travel around Thailand and Bali for 2 months. I traveled solo, which had it’s ups and downs; but one thing is for sure: it helped me to be present. Without a travel partner to influence my plans, I lingered longer at each meal, listened with more curiosity to the sound of the ocean waves, let my eyes take in more color, and more deeply felt each passing thunder storm. These vegan sweet potato noodles will make me feel like I’m in Thailand for the time being!

It took me about 4 years, but I am finally rediscovering presence and appreciation for the simple things in life. Both when I’m alone and with others.

One of my favorite ways to drop into the here and now is to cook a beautiful meal full of color, flavor, and texture. Cooking is my creative outlet, my moving asana. Eating is my meditation. These soul-full sweet potato noodles are inspired by my Thai travels. The ginger, lime, garlic, and coriander leaves all take me back to the place where I could effortlessly just be.

I hope you enjoy this sweet potato noodles recipe––every single bite. And I hope it inspires you to dip a little deeper into this river called life.

Sweet Potato Noodles with Tangy Almond Sauce

By: Jenné
These creamy sweet potato noodles with almond lime sauce are really delicious and easy-to-make. This is definitely one of my new favorite vegan recipes.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, use fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced or grated
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil, or other oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced or thinly sliced
  • 1 Thai chili pepper or 1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped or thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 package extra firm tofu, about 1 cup, cubed
  • 2 sweet potatoes, medium, peeled and tips removed
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped, loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds or peanuts, chopped
  • 1 lime wedge for serving


  • Pour your sauce ingredients (almond butter, water, lime juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and maple syrup) into a sauce pot on medium heat.
  • Whisk vigorously until smooth, as the contents begin to simmer.
  • Reduce to low heat, cover, and allow the sauce to continue cooking
  • Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the onion, Thai chili, and red pepper, and cook until the veggies begin to soften (3 minutes)
  • Add the red cabbage and broccoli, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Make a space in the middle of the skillet, and add the cubed tofu. Allow it to brown on each side for a few minutes, before stirring all of the veggies and tofu together. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender.
  • While the veggies are cooking, spiralize the sweet potatoes.
  • Once the veggies are cooked, remove them from the skillet.
  • Pour the almond sauce into the skillet on medium heat, immediately followed by the spiralized sweet potato noodles. Stir to coat and combine.
  • Cover and allow the sauce and noodles to cook for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes stir and taste to see if the sweet potatoes are soft enough to your liking. They will need no more than 15 minutes to cook. Be careful to not overcook them.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in the cooked vegetables.
  • Serve with chopped cilantro, toasted almonds/peanuts, and a lime wedge. Enjoy hot, room temperature, or chilled.
