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!

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.

Note: Hi, it’s Ali! I’m currently taking time off the blog for a maternity leave. During this time, I will be featuring some of the bloggers who have inspired me – they’ve provided spiralized recipes for all of you to enjoy during my absence.

Sweet Potato and Cabbage Pad Thai
- 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
- 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.
