Sweet Potato Noodles Stir Fry

This Vermicelli oriental style noodle is gluten-free. In fact, it’s made from sweet potatoes, so it’s a great alternative for people who are wheat and/or gluten-free — plus it changes it up from the regular rice noodle.

A few years ago one of my dad’s coworker, who is Korean, made us a Thanksgiving dish with these noodles, and my dad liked it so much he decided to buy some himself. You can buy these noodles at any Asian food store, like Hmart.

You can make a lot of different dishes with this noodle. My sister and I opted for a stir fry with a little Asian kick to it.


Extra Virgin olive oil

1/4 onion, diced

Sweet Potato noodles

Broccoli, broken into small-ish pieces

Cherry tomatoes

Yellow and orange bell peppers, diced

Kale leaves, ripped into bite-size pieces

Thai red curry sauce

Tamari sauce, to taste

Salt and pepper, to taste


1.Set a large pot of water to boil on the stove. Add the sweet potato noodles and cook according to the directions on the bag (usually, turn down the heat to medium and let simmer, stirring every once in a while until soft. Try testing a noodle to see if it’s edible).

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the onion in the olive oil. When soft, add the red curry sauce. Then add the peppers and tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.

3. Add tamari sauce, broccoli and the ripped kale leaves, cover and let simmer for a few minutes.

4. When the pasta is done, drain in a colander in the sink. Then transfer the noodles to the stir fry pan. Mix well and let the noodles absorb some of the juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
