Steamed Yam Noodles w/ Roasted Pepper Sauce

Do you like a warm bowl of pasta or noodles, and yet avoid grains? Let's do it, just make a bowl of steamed yam noodles or pasta and make your own sauce to go with it. You can have all the flavors you can think of in your sauce. I prefer my veggie pasta or noodles any day over a pasta made with wheat or other grains. I have it raw or just warmed or fully cooked depending on the kind of vegetable, and sometimes also depending on the weather outside. Since it is brutally cold outside, I prefer to have my yam noodles cooked and served warm. How about you?




Steamed Yam Noodles:

  • Yam/Sweet potato - 1 large 
  • Peel and slice using a Spirooli slicer. Steam till just tender for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Also steam some veggies to go with the noodles.( I used 1 cup of cauliflower florets and 2 cups of baby spinach) 


Roasted Pepper Sauce:

  • Red/Orange bell pepper - 2
  • Tomato on the vine - 1 
  • Garlic - 3-4 cloves
  • Green chilly - 3-4 
  • EV olive oil - 3 Tbs
  • Sea salt - as per taste
  • Nutritional yeast - 1/4 cup (Optional) 

  • Heat olive oil in a pan and roast garlic, pepper slices and tomato quarters. Let them cool down a little bit.
  • Transfer to a blender jar. Add green chillies, remaining olive oil and salt and puree till creamy.
  • If using nutritional yeast, add it now and blend till it is mixed well with the sauce.
  • Serve warm with the steamed yam noodles and steamed veggies.
  • Enjoy !
