Spicy, Salty and Sweet – YUM! If you don’t have a spirooli to make zucchini noodles use your vegetable peeler to create long thin strips to be used as noodles. This is a go-to recipe for it's simplicity and flavour. It takes less than 30 min to prepare and, lets face it, we all want dinner to take less than 30min on a work night! It also stays fresh for a couple days in the fridge without becoming that sticky dry consistency that rice and wheat noodles get. It's the perfect meal to make a double batch of and take to lunch the next day. Now for the best part - it's actually good for you! Traditional Pad Thai is made with rice noodles which are essentially just sugar. You'll feel quickly energized but then a couple hours later feel worse than before you ate because your blood sugar just plummeted. Zucchini noodles provide sustained energy and lots of micronutrients.
