Pad Thai

I love pad thai!  I’m not sure how I forgot about the awesomeness of pad thai! and how easy it is to take the starch and sugar out of asian recipes!  Veronica reminded me by posting a picture of her delicious meal and I promised to find a recipe for this catalog!

This is the pad thai from Melissa (The clothes make the girl) Click to go directly to her original post and the recipe

A google search for ‘paleo pad thai‘ will give you a bunch of different options but my favourite is this one from Melissa at The Clothes make the Girl.   I have had it before when I first changed the way I was eating – the ingredients are on this week’s shopping list that’s for sure!  Click Melissa’s photo to go directly to her original post and the recipe —>

Edit (19 February 2014):  I made this for dinner tonight – and I’m telling you it was FANTASTIC!

My tips:  put the sauce through before the spaghetti squash – otherwise it’s a pain to coat everything because the squash gets a bit gloopy (still yummy though – but my picture wouldn’t have come out like that)

Sambal Oelek – I thought I had chilli flakes and cayenne at home – but apparently not.  But 1 tsp of sambal oelek through the dish (I’m a wimp) and another one through my husband’s serve was awesome!

Other veg.  I would imagine, provided you upped the sauce you could also up the veggie content for this and serve more people – I put some red cabbage in for colour (and because I was short on snow peas).  Next time I’ll definitely do some carrots and broccoli!

Edit (27 March 2014):  made this again and it’s still fab – was brave enough to put in 1 tablespoon of sambal oelek and it was great.  Julienne carrots and some broccoli were fantastic additions!
