I was saying to my sister-in-law (can I call her that yet? I’m just going to do it) today that I had no idea what to post this week, and this was with just half of Sunday left to go. I mentioned I had this cashew stir-fry as a back-up but felt it wasn’t substantial or exciting enough to share with you. She told me to go for it and I’m glad she did because I forgot just how much the flavours pack a punch.
A few years ago I came across sweet potato noodles in an Asian grocer and I bought them because they were surprisingly gluten-free. The noodles sat on a shelf in my cupboard for a good six months before I finally settled on what I would do with them: make japchae, also known as Korean glass noodles.
Finding sweet potato noodles can sometimes be like finding a needle in a haystack. Without them I could have gone for regular rice noodles, or even pasta but I decided to push myself towards something even healthier and landed on zucchini noodles.
