Spicy Curry Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

 

I’ve been on a little asian food kick lately.  If you had to pick one cuisine to eat for the rest of your life, what would you choose?  Hands down, I would pick asian food. There are so many incredible flavors in every dish, you’ll never get tired of it.  I made a healthy little bowl and packed it chalk full of amazing veggies, and I think I have a new favorite dish.  Let me know if you feel the same!

Serves 4

What you need for the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced (or use ginger paste)
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 14-ounce can full fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoon sweet and spicy chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce

What you need for the bowl:

  • 5 cups spiralized sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • half an onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • sesame seeds for topping
  • a handful of fresh cilantro for serving
  1. Sauce: Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and ginger; stir fry for 3-5 minutes. Add the curry paste; stir fry for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, sugar, chili paste, oyster sauce, and soy sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes or so while you prep the rest of the ingredients – it should thicken slightly. If you’re adding the broth to make the sauce go farther, you might need a little extra simmer time for the sauce to thicken.
  2. Vegetables and Assembly: In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the onion, carrots, broccoli, and asparagus. Stir fry for about 5 minutes until the broccoli and asparagus are bright green. Add the noodles to the sauce and toss to coat.  Let simmer for 5 minutes so that the noodles cook a little. Add the vegetables and toss together until just combined. Serve topped with the purple cabbage and sesame seeds and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Enjoy!

    So you don’t cook the sweet potatoes? Just toss in to coat with sauce? This looks really good. I want to make sure I’m not missing any steps!
