Angie’s Recipe of the day: Sweet Potato Noodles with Roasted Red Pepper “Cream” Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper “Cream” Sauce
Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

1 cup steamed sweet potato chunks
1 cup nut milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 cloves raw garlic
1 roasted red pepper
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

Directions:

Throw all ingredients into a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix, and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings to taste.

*If your sweet potato is freshly steamed, be careful when using the blender– the steam pressure can make the lid pop off! I used very cold nut milk, to cool it down a bit.

Sweet Potato Noodles with Roasted Red Pepper “Cream” Sauce

A grain-free, dairy-free alternative to satisfy a creamy pasta craving.

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled (save ½ potato for sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • Roasted Red Pepper “Cream” Sauce (recipe posted above)
  • sea salt, to taste

 Instructions

  1. Begin by making the “noodles” out of the raw sweet potato, using a spiralizer. (You could also use a vegetable peeler to make fettucinni-like noodles.) *I used about 1½ large sweet potatoes to fill a BIG bowl of noodles– use your own judgement when determining portion sizes.
  2. Time Saving Tip: You can make the noodles while your roasted red peppers are steaming away for the sauce!
  3. Steam the remaining ½ sweet potato (about one cup of chunks) for the Red Pepper Cream Sauce recipe.
  4. Saute the fresh asparagus and mushrooms in a bit of butter, until tender. I always use a bit of water, as well, to keep things moving without adding extra butter to the dish.
  5. Add in the sweet potato noodles, and cook just long enough for them to get slightly tender, but not mushy.
  6. Immediately add the cream sauce, and toss with the noodles so that they are well coated. I placed a lid over my pan for about 2 minutes– which was enough time to gently steam the noodles and heat everything thoroughly.
  7. Adjust any seasonings to taste, and serve immediately.
