I love making sweet potato noodles because sweet potatoes are a wonderful ingredient, and I can enjoy this delicious vegan lunch. You won’t really miss the cream or cheese, but if you like them, don’t be afraid to add them in too! My daughter says I should prepare this lunch often because it helps me stay young. I cut the sweet potatoes with a mandolin slicer, but you can also use a potato peeler. You might not get the beautiful slices, but they’ll be perfect. MORE + LESS -


cup cashews. It’s better if they’re raw, but you can also use them toasted

    Cut the sweet potatoes into thin fettuccine-like noodles using the mandolin. Steam them for 2-3 minutes. They need to be soft but firm. Be careful so they don’t break apart.
