Sweet Potato Noodles in Maple Cashew Sauce

makes 4 servings


3/4 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours

1/2 cup water

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. avocado or olive oil

1 cup broccoli florets

4 small sweet potatoes, spiralized

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional garnish: paprika, fresh basil and toasted cashew


1. Place soaked cashews in a high-speed blender. Add water, salt, maple syrup, and garlic. Blend until smooth and creamy.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add broccoli and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Cover pan for about 3 minutes to help cook the broccoli. Remove lid and add the sweet potato noodles. Season again with salt and pepper and toss in the pan for about 6 minutes, until just tender.

3. Lower heat to low and add the sauce to the pan and toss to combine. Add a little water if the sauce gets too thick. Season with salt and pepper and a drizzle with olive oil. Enjoy!
