This colourful Low Carb Asian Sweet Potato Noodle recipe is bursting with goodness and flavours. Served in peanut butter, sesame and lime dressing, this recipe makes a good alternative to a heavy carb pasta salad.
Some of the vegetables are steamed to preserve vitamins and nutrients while others are added raw for extra crunch.
I developed this recipe for Panasonic as part of their #ExperienceFresh campaign. To steam the vegetables I used their Combination Microwave NN-DS596B but if you do not have a steam oven, you can use a regular steamer. You can read more about the Panasonic Combination Microwave NN-DS596B here.
