Yams & A Recipe

7c130c14b6a212e8f1c11d85f25b7285

yam noodles with sweet sauce, marinated mushrooms & sesame seeds
serves one
marinated mushrooms:
4 mushrooms
1 teaspoons sesame oil (optional but recommended) 
1 teaspoon tamari
sweet miso sauce:
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon agave/maple syrup/raw honey
1 tablespoon miso
1 tablespoons hummus (not raw, too bad)
1 peeled garlic clove
2 tablespoons mustard
3-5 tablespoons water, as needed
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Yam noodles:
1 peeled yam
To make the mushrooms: slice them really thin then rub in the oil and tamari. Put them in a warm spot (I put them in my oven at its lowest temperature) and forget about them for a minute.
To make the sauce: blend all ingredients except sesame seeds together until smooth. Add whatever else you want. Then toss in the sesame seeds by hand. Set aside.
To make the noodles: put the yam through your spiral slicer (spirooli) or slice on a mandolin  Then cover them with the sauce and them get to know each other for a few minutes. The noodles will soften and pick up more flavour. Now remember your marinating fungi friends being warmed somewhere? Add those on top, and sprinkle on some more sesame seeds and raisins. Yum. Yams, man.
