  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • ¼ white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-inch piece ginger, finely chopped
  • ½ cup non-dairy, unsweetened milk such as almond milk
  • ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp tapioca or corn starch
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder & paprika
  • Dash of red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 oz. macaroni noodles


  1. Pierce sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Wrap in a wet paper towel and microwave for 6 minutes until soft. Scrape flesh into a high-speed blender.

  2. In a small skillet, heat 1 tsp oil. Add onion and ginger. Saute for 5-6 min. until fragrant and translucent. Add to blender. Add the remaining ingredients (except breadcrumbs). Season with salt and pepper as desired.

  3. Turn oven on to high broil. Grease two small cast iron skillets (alternatively, a small baking dish) with vegan butter or oil.

  4. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and add back to saucepan. Pour over sauce and stir to combine. Divide evenly among the two skillets (or baking dish). Top with breadcrumbs and broil for 4-5 min. until golden brown (see notes).

  5. Serve with freshly ground black pepper and a dash of red pepper flakes. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Oven temperatures vary, so pay close attention to the pasta when it is broiling. Don't want it to burn!
