Several years ago we hired a personal chef to come teach my daughter how to cook Thai food since she wanted to be a chef. The sweet lady we hired had been a missionary in Thailand for 17 years and had even adopted a child while there. The stories she told of living in a forest, no running water, no electricity, and yet providing not only for her family but for a small village, were amazing. Of course the food she taught us to cook was just as amazing. Since we’ve begun eating Paleo I’m slowly taking the recipes and trying to convert them to Paleo friendly versions.
This Pad Thai turned out pretty darn close. The sauce is a little thicker, but the flavor is amazing. The kids are begging for a glass noodle salad next, not sure I can capture the texture of the glass noodles though.
I think draining the zucchini noodles is key, so don’t skip that step. Just let them sit on a few paper towels while you prepare everything else. If you can let them sit for 30 minutes or so, even better!Print
