Vegan Camote Pancit (Sweet Potato Noodles)

Here’s a delicious and nutritious vegan meal for Filipinos using noodles, onions, and camote (sweet potato):


200 grams of rice noodles or bihon

2 medium-sized camote (sweet potatoes), peeled and julienned

1 large onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium-sized carrot, julienned

1 cup shredded cabbage

1 bell pepper, sliced

2-3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 cups vegetable broth or water

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional: chopped spring onions and lemon wedges for garnish


Prepare the Noodles:

Soak the rice noodles in warm water for about 10 minutes or until they soften. Drain and set aside.

Cook the Camote:

In a large pan or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat.

Add the julienned camote and cook until they are tender and slightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Sauté the Aromatics:

In the same pan, add a bit more oil if needed.

Sauté the onions until they become translucent.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.

Cook the Vegetables:

Add the julienned carrots, bell pepper, and shredded cabbage to the pan. Stir-fry for about 3-5 minutes until the vegetables are tender but still crisp.

Combine Ingredients:

Return the cooked camote to the pan.

Add the softened noodles and pour in the vegetable broth or water.

Add soy sauce, salt, and pepper to taste.

Mix and Cook:

Gently toss all the ingredients together to ensure they are well combined.

Cook for another 3-5 minutes until the noodles have absorbed the broth and the flavors are well incorporated.


Transfer the Vegan Camote Pancit to a serving dish.

Garnish with chopped spring onions and lemon wedges on the side.


For added protein, you can include tofu or tempeh. Adjust the vegetables according to your preference or what’s available. For a bit of heat, you can add sliced chili peppers or a dash of hot sauce. You can also different sauces such as avocado, peanut or tomato
