Pad thai has been one of my favourite dishes for a long time, along with thai food in general. I was determined to make a healthy pad thai that was paleo and good for you too, but also had lots of flavour. I am happy to say I think I have nailed it! This recipe is super easy, and you don’t need a bunch of random, hard to find ingredients.
I am using butternut squash noodles here but you can use zucchini noodles (zoodles), sweet potato noodles, or even something like Nu Pasta which is one of my fav pasta substitutes made from konjac root.
What is even better is this comes together super quick, less than 10 minutes, making it a great quick meal when you don’t have a lot of time but you still want something delicious.
