Vegetable Noodle Pad Thai

I had never had Thai food until last summer when my daughter took me to this cute little Thai restaurant in Wichita Kansas.  We had the most delicious coconut sticky rice and pad thai.  I tried to make pad thai once but I think I must have done something wrong.  The recipe I had called for fish sauce and let’s just say that I really stunk up my house with it.  oops!

This recipe is super easy, super quick and has zero fish sauce.  And I can honestly say that it may have just become my new favorite go to recipe.  It is delicious and I truly hope you enjoy it too!  🙂

Vegetable Noodle Pad Thai

Serves 2

Recipe from a challenger in one of my fitness groups.


1 cup  spiraled sweet potatoes

1 cup french green beans

1 cup broccoli slaw

1 cup slivered yellow onions

8 oz cooked, diced chicken breast

Diced garlic

Saute with a teaspoon of coconut oil until the veggies are softened.

For the sauce:

2 tbsp chili paste in 1/4 cup of water ( I admit that I couldn’t find chili paste in my grocery store so I used Thai Sweet and Spicy Chili Sauce and it was so yummy. )

After the veggies have softened, add sauce and simmer until absorbed.  Garnish with chopped peanuts, green onions and cilantro.

Enjoy!  🙂

Make each day count!
