Yam noodles in a cashew sauce with fresh turmeric


I was asked by a number of people to share this recipe! So, here it is! It is so simple and I made it two nights in a row over the weekend! You can add extra embellishments if you like! This recipe is so easy and super tasty!

What you’ll need:

  • Raw organic cashews
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Fresh garlic
  • Fresh turmeric
  • Salt
  • Lemon
  • Water
  • Coconut oil or butter (grass fed)
  • Yams or sweet potatoes
  • One onion
  • Spiralizer


  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Pea shoots or micro-greens

Cashew “Cheese” Sauce:

1.5-2cups of raw organic cashews soaked for 20min

3TBSP of nutritional yeast

1 Tsp lemon juice

One garlic clove

One piece of fresh turmeric

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup to one cup of water (start with 1/2 cup and add more if too thick)

Drain soaked cashews first before adding more water**

Blend all ingredients until smooth and set aside.


Spiralize two large yams or sweet potatoes with whichever thickness you would like.

In a pan heat up the coconut oil or butter and saute the onion until soft and then add spinach and cherry tomatoes if you like. Then add the spiralized noodles to heat through. Once they are sauteed a bit, pour the cashew sauce over top and heat up. I like to finish off with some fresh pea shoots or micro-greens for a bit of a healthy crunch! That’s it, so easy!
