Zoodle Pad Thai

My time in Thailand totally inspired me to create this lightened up version of pad thai, full of amazing veggies & organic tofu, you can always use some chicken cubes but I kept it vegetarian today…. give it a shot!

What You Will Need:

To make the sauce:

  • 1 TBL coconut sugar
  • 2 TBL tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 TBL fish sauce
  • 4 TBL organic sesame oil
  • 2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • juice of 1 lime
  • pinch of salt

For the Base:

  • 5 Zucchinis
  • 2 blocks of organic tofu
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup organic edamame beans
  • 1 pack of organic Asian veggie mix ( I only use this because of the water chesnuts & its quick, if you can use fresh veggies of choice like bean sprouts, carrots and bean sprouts).
  • 1 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1 TBL of organic olive oil
  • hot peppers * optional

What To Do:

  1. In a large pan heat up some olive oil and begin to saute the minced garlic
  2. While the garlic is sauteing take the tofu & press out all of the water with a clean tea towel, really press hard.
  3. Cut up the pressed tofu into little cubes
  4. Throw in the tofu & pan fry until golden brown & transfer to a plate,  in a separate pot cook your veggies, either fresh or frozen
  5. In the mean time bust out your veggie spiralizer buy one here OR just use a veggie peeler to make your zoodles!
  6. When you are finished spiralizing all 5 of your zuc’s take a paper towel and press out all of the water out of the zoodles.
  7. Take the tofu out of the pan and add some more olive oil in & throw in the edamame and veggies, cook for about 3 minutes
  8. While your veggie mix is pan frying, make the pad thai sauce up ( just whisk everything together and add in )
  9. Next up, add in your zoodles & 1/2 cup of peanuts and stir to combine everything up
  10. Now add the pan fried tofu chunks and turn off the heat and let heat through for about 2 more minutes
  11. Scoop your glorious Zoodle Pad Thai into a cute bowl and garnish with more peanuts!
