This Zucchini Noodle Pad Thai features spiralized zucchini noodles in a spicy peanut sauce. It’s delicious, low carb and much healthier than Thai takeout!
I spent the weekend hanging out with family, which was awesome. I got to see my dad for Father’s Day and visit with my sister, bro-n-law, mom, nieces and new baby nephew.
I also experimented with local zucchini I purchased from the farmers market and came up with a new recipe using my spiralizer. Zucchini noodle pasta (a.k.a zoodles) is nothing new as I’ve made that many times before, however this weekend I decided to use zucchini noodles to make a tasty Thai-inspired dinner.
The final product reminded me of Pad Thai when served warm. Although to be perfectly honest I’ve only ever had bites of Isaac’s Pad Thai entrées because I’ve never actually ordered it for myself. I’m more of a papaya salad, Tom Yum soup and fresh spring roll girl when it comes to ordering at Thai restaurants.
This dish is so easy to whip up and has a lovely blend of fresh flavors and a hint of richness from the peanut sauce. It’s not only delicious, but much healthier than traditional Thai takeout. Feel free to serve it warm or cold. If there are leftovers, I like eating them cold from the fridge. Although when it’s cold I like to add a little almond milk to loosen up the sauce a bit. Enjoy!
