Vegan Pad Thai

I just love Pad Thai.  Now that I am vegan, I wanted to make a Vegan Pad Thai.  This vegan pad Thai came out really yummy!  In addition to being vegan, this healthy pad Thai recipe is also gluten free and grain free!  I used zucchini noodles to make this healthy pad Thai recipe.  I just love my spiralizer.  That is what I used to make the zucchini noodles.  Totally worth getting in my opinion.   This super easy recipe can be made up in no time at all.  If you like to use your spiralizer, you may also like this and this.

I highly recommend keeping the sauce and the vegetables separate until you are ready to eat.  The zucchini noodles can release moisture that can make the sauce seem a bit watery.  I actually spiralized my zucchini the day before I went to use it in the recipe.  I just stored it in a strainer with a bowl underneath to catch the excess water.  It seemed to work well.   We actually ate this meal cold, but I am guessing you can heat it up as well.  This may not taste exactly like traditional pad Thai, but it is a great option for vegans. Very yummy!

Some foods are really hard to photograph.  This is one of them.  Even though the picture isn’t great, I promise the recipes is delicious.  I am slightly obsessed with sun-dried tomatoes these days.  In my opinion, the sun-dried tomatoes are what really makes this recipe delicious.  Every other bite you get the sweetness of the tomatoes.  It pairs very well with the onions and garlic.  Since I made this recipe with quinoa, it can be a complete vegan meal.

Quinoa, Kale and Sundried Tomatoes

I often will make a large batch of quinoa at one time.  Then I stick half in the fridge and half in the freezer.  That way, I always have some on hand to add to meals.  My husband has been trying to eat less and less grains, so we have been eating a lot more quinoa than rice these days.  I hope you enjoy quinoa, kale and sun dried tomatoes recipe.
