Sweet Potato Noodles

While perusing our Korean market in town I found some noodles that were labeled as Sweet Potato Noodles. One of my favorite restaurants has a dish involving sweet potato noodles so I was set to replicate it.
I made a pressed salad and added it (plus all of it's wonderful juices) to my already cooked noodles. The pressed salad was great, as always, but I need some sort of sauce on the sweet potato noodles. They were a little too dry for me, I'm not sure what they add to keep everything so moist and flavorful. It looks like I need a to experiment more for this dish.

As soon as I got home from CA I made a batch of azuki beans and I've been adding them to meals throughout this week. I had azuki beans and avocado along side my noodle dish. This meal was extremely filling and I almost couldn't finish.
I want to cook with azuki beans more. Do you have any good recipes? My favorite is azuki and squash but this avocado one was fantastic as well
