Yam Noodles with Sweet Sauce and Mushrooms

  15 rater(s)

One would think that it’s impossible to enjoy raw yams, but that theory is incorrect. Spiralizing a yam into thin noodles is one of the best ways to enjoy it in its raw form. It’s also possible to juice yams, or thinly slice them with a mandoline and dehydrate them to make chips. When you enjoy homemade yam noodles, you get to eat noodles that won’t make you feel bloated. Yams are excellent sources of complex carbohydrates and beta-carotene, and keeping them in their raw form means that you don’t lose out on those nutrients.

For this recipe, you’ll have to dedicate about 10 minutes to marinate/cook the mushrooms. You don’t really cook mushrooms; rather, you warm them up by putting them in the oven at the lowest setting. This helps to warm them up and impart more flavor.

When you spiralize your yam, make sure to use the fine noodle cut because you don’t want thick, fibrous yam noodles. Once you make the sauce, pour it over the noodles and allow them time to soak so that they can soften. This can take about 20 minutes. Finally, stir in the mushrooms and you have yourself a perfectly healthy dish!
