Ingredients
  

VEGETABLES:

  • 2 medium sweet potato rinsed and chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 40 pcs green beans stems removed
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup tauge
  • 1 cucumber optional

SPICY PEANUT SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup peanut deep-fried or roasted
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce if not gluten free
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
  • 2-3 tsp chili garlic sauce depending on your preferred level of spice
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2-3 tbsp roasted salted peanuts optional
  • Hard-boiled egg optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add sliced sweet potato and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Check and should be tender and slightly golden brown. Set aside.
  • While potato rounds are cooking, steam 3-4 minutes the green beans in the microwave. Alternatively, add to boiling hot water for 1 minute, then transfer to ice water to stop the cooking process (a.k.a. “shocking”). Drain and set aside.
  • Now, prepare the peanut sauce by adding all ingredients except water to a small mixing bowl and whisking. Add hot water 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time until desired consistency is reached, it should have a little liquid.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more chili garlic sauce according to your level of spiciness, maple syrup for sweetness and add the lime juice for acidity.
  • To assemble, sliced roasted sweet potato, steamed green beans, sliced red pepper, bean sprouts, cilantro, a hard-boiled egg (optional) and cucumber (optional).
  • Serve with spicy peanut sauce.
