Plant Based Pad Thai Salad - Nurse Kristin

Plant Based Pad Thai Salad

A Salad a Day. That’s been my jam lately. Eating one big ole’ salad each and every day.

Well, when you eat the same type of dish everyday, you need a little variety right? So, I got to thinking, what is my favorite kind of food to eat…

Answer: Thai Food

What is one of my favorite Thai dishes to eat…

Answer: Almost all of them! LOL!

But for real now, I love Pad Thai. Always have. One thing I don’t particularly like about Pad Thai, is that it’s usually a pretty oily dish at most Thai restaurants. And sometimes, there are very little veggies so it’s not a dish I order often but I just love the flavor.

I mean, come on, who doesn’t love peanut sauce?

So, today, I give you a healthy plant based spin on a traditional Pad Thai recipe. You can eat this as a main course or it would pair great with some soup like Tom Kha (which actually is my favorite Thai dish).

As with most of my recipes, this is a whole food plant based dish, it’s oil free, requires minimal ingredients, takes minimal time, and it’s loaded with goodness.

Enjoy!

My daughter and I were just talking about flavors and dishes we can’t live without and Pad Thai is one of our top three! We’ll be trying this one.
