The miso paste in the sauce adds that delicious umami savoriness that you probably associate with a lot of Asian cuisine.

1 (7-ounce) package sweet potato noodles

2 Tbsp low-sodium vegetable broth

1 small yellow onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 stalks broccolini, chopped

2 Tbsp white mellow miso paste

2 Tbsp dark maple syrup

2 Tbsp water

1 Add the sweet potato noodles to a pot of boiling water and cook for 6 minutes.

5 To make the sauce, add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk until everything is well combined.
