Sweet potato "noodles" (spiralized sweet potatoes) are a nutritious, gluten-free alternative to starchy rice or wheat noodles. Look for them in the produce department of your supermarket. If you have a spiralizer, you can certainly make your own "swoodles" (start with 2 medium sweet potatoes).

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine vinegar, fish sauce, honey and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl. Place near the stove.
  2. Heat a large wok or skillet over high heat until hot. Swirl in 1 teaspoon oil. Add eggs and cook, without stirring, until set on the bottom, 30 to 45 seconds. Flip over and cook until completely set, about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a cutting board and slice or chop.
  3. Swirl the remaining ¼ cup oil into the wok (or skillet). Add sweet potato noodles, bell pepper, scallions and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add bean sprouts, the reserved sauce and the cooked egg; toss until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve, garnished with peanuts, cilantro and lime wedges.
