Sweet Potato and Cabbage Pad Thai

Miranda Hammer from The Crunchy Radish is doing a total takeout fakeout with this Sweet Potato and Cabbage Pad Thai!

Seriously, who doesn’t LOVE pad thai? I’m so happy to offer up this gluten-free version, thanks to Miranda!

Miranda and I met through blogging and had the pleasure of hosting an event together in the city together and became friends! She was also pregnant at the same time as me, so it was so nice to have someone to talk to during that time who was in the wellness space and pregnant!

Sweet Potato and Cabbage Pad Thai

From Miranda:

Most people are pad thai fans.

It’s delicious, satisfying, and a staple in Thai cuisine. What’s not to love about this classic dish is that it’s often made with rice noodles doused in a sauce heavy on the sugar and the sodium. This version lightens things up with noodles made from nutrient-rich sweet potatoes and cabbage and tossed in a sauce of peanut butter, tamari, ginger, garlic, and lots of fresh lime juice.

It is lightly sweetened with a touch of maple syrup, which can easily be omitted, if you wish. Crunchy peanuts, scallions, and a scattering of gomasio finishes this dish with a nice contrast of textures and flavors.

Recipe

Sweet Potato and Cabbage Pad Thai

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes ends removed and peeled
  • 1 small or ½ of a medium sized purple cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium tamari
  • 2 tablespoons organic crunchy peanut butter or almond butter
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice + additional lime wedges for serving
  • 2 tablespoons ginger minced (divided)
  • 3 cloves garlic minced (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon or more hot sauce depends on how hot you like it!
  • 2 tablespoons avocado coconut, or olive oil (divided)
  • 4 pasture-raised eggs
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • ½ cup roasted lightly salted peanuts coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon gomaiso

Instructions

  • Using the inspiralizer, set to blade C, spiralize the sweet potatoes. Change to blade A, and spiralize the cabbage. Set aside.
  • To make the sauce, whisk together the tamari, nut butter, lime juice, half of the ginger and garlic, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, maple syrup, and at least 1 teaspoon of hot sauce. Taste and adjust if needed.
  • Crack the eggs in a bowl and beat. In a large skillet or dutch oven, warm 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil and ½ tablespoon sesame oil over medium heat. Add the remaining ginger and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the eggs, scramble, break into large pieces with a wooden spoon, and transfer to a bowl for later use. Wipe pan clean.
  • In the same pan used to cook the eggs, warm 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil and ½ tablespoon sesame oil over medium heat. Add the sweet potato and cabbage noodles and cook for 10 minutes or until softened. Add the eggs and peanut sauce and toss well to combine.
  • Transfer to serving bowls and garnish with scallions, peanuts, bean sprouts, and gomaiso.

What is gomaiso? Word reference app doesn’t have a definition.
MARGOT says:
TOASTED SESAME SEEDS AND SALT, GROUND TOGETHER
Amber says:
I am allergic to sesame. Any suggestions what else I could use?
Meaghan says:
It's just a seasoning made from ground sesame seeds and salt.
Amber S says:

What a great idea! I'll have to make a vegan rendition on this recipe someday. I miss Pad Thai already!
Meaghan says:
Yes! Please do!
Sharon H says:
what can I substitute for the Tamari or Soy Sauce....I do not eat Soy or Soy products.
Gia W says:
Coconut aminos should work
Sharon H says:
I wondered about that, thank you!
I would use coconut aminos...found at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, etc.
Meaghan says:
Yes, Coconut aminos is a great substitute!

Made this tonight. Quick and yummy! Thank you!
Meaghan says:
That's so great to hear! Thank you for letting us know.
Jenny says:
Made this for dinner tonight and it was outstanding!! Can’t wait for leftovers at lunch tomorrow. Thank you for sharing!
Meaghan says:
That's so fabulous to hear!!! We're so glad you loved the dish. Thanks for giving it a try.
Amber says:
Made this for dinner with red cabbage and purple sweet potatoes. Didn't have peanuts or tamari, so those got left out. I added baby broccoli greens a couple minutes before the end instead of bean sprouts. I also had to leave out the sesame due to food allergies, but it still tasted great. I love the eggs with garlic and ginger cooked into them.
Katherine says:
Just curious how this is vegan if the recipe calls for eggs?
Meaghan says:
Hi Katherine, we're sorry for any confusion. This isn't meant to be a vegan dish!
OMG this is so good! I made it with what I had on hand and the only cooking difference is that I cooked the spirals in the microwave for three minutes first. It was delish!
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Suzanne! So happy to hear you enjoyed this so much!
diana says:
I think it would be delicious with tofu as a replacement for the eggs. I would saute my tofu using the same spices in some coconut oil. Going to try this for sure!
Laura says:
Adapted this to use up some sweet potatoes and cabbage I had. Used what I had on hand and made it more like a veggie side dish so omitted the egg. Delicious!
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Laura! Sounds delicious!
Audrey says:
This was amazing!!! I omitted the sesame oil, maple syrup and eggs and it was still incredible! I made extra sauce and have been using it as a tofu sauce, absolutely one of my new favorite dishes. Thank you so much for sharing this!
Jhoei says:
Cabbage noodles are something new to me. I love pad thai and I love sweet potatoes too. I would love to try this recipe but if I can't find cabbage noodles, I might as well use the noodles for pad thai.
Jessalyn says:
I love this recipe. Very healthy and yummy!
Carly Glazer says:
So happy to hear!
Anonymous says:
I was looking for recipes to use up some red cabbage. I ran across this recipes and decided to try since I love Pad Thai. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Carly Glazer says:
So glad you enjoyed!
Alanna says:
I'm a bit confused, this is labelled as vegan all over the recipe but it has eggs in it. Eggs are not vegan?
Meaghan says:
You are so right, Alanna! We will have to update that. We're sorry for the confusion!
Mark says:
I dont have your brand spiralizer, do you have any idea what sizes the settings are for the blades, mine are marked in millimeters thanks, Mark
Meaghan says:
Hi Mark! In most cases, the noodle shape is all personal preference. We just recommend matching the shape and size up best with whatever machine you're using!!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
