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!
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!

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!
