    • Deliciously Ella sweet potato noodles

      Deliciously Ella's sweet potato noodles

      Sweet potato noodles are a great alternative to pasta if you're following a gluten free diet or simply if you want to up your veg intake. This Deliciously Ella recipe combines the spiralised sweet potato with a creamy and fragrant peanut satay sauce that goes really well these veggie noodles. To make this Deliciously Ella recipe, you will need a spiraliser but we think once you've got one it's a real investment for quick, healthy mid-week meals. If you odn't have a spiraliser then you can get ready made veggies noodles in most big supermarkets now. Once you've got your spiralised sweet potato noodles, all you have to do is cook them for ten minutes in a mixture of ginger, celery, garlic, mushrooms and olive oil, until they're tender. The satay peanut sauce is also super simple and quick to make - all you need to do is put all the ingredients in a blender and whizz them until smooth. This recipe uses crunchy peanut butter, but almond butter would also work if that's what you usually have in your cupboard. Ella says: 'These noodles were quite a revelation to me. Theyíre so much heartier and more filling than courgette noodles, and this satay sauce really brings them to life. Itís so incredibly creamy, with subtle hints of chilli and tangy lime. Together they make for the best pick-me-up dinner, healthy but comforting and bursting with flavour.'
