10-minute Pad Thai Zoodles for a quick and easy plant based meal10minutepadthai3

MAJOR confusion babes.

I do not like Thai food.

Yes, that is right. I do not like Thai food. The spices and sauces give me a major tummy ache and I just can’t seem to jump on the Thai take out bandwagon. It’s a little odd if you ask me that I don’t like a lot of Thai food since nuts are a common ingredients their dishes. I have a feeling it is something in the oils and such they use but who knows.

Since I don’t order Pad Thai out, I wanted to make an easy and clean Pad Thai recipe for us to enjoy.

This Pad Thai Zoodle recipe is completely plant-based and gluten-free. Plus it is ready in less than 10 minutes, so it doesn’t get much easier than that.

It also has the perfect crunch inside thanks to Diamond Nut’s Shake & Spoon varieties. The Shake & Spoon varieties are completely raw and unsalted nuts that you can add to anything. I have been using it in my oats, chia puddings, on banana bread (wait until you see that one) and more. It is basically my version of salt & pepper shakers. They have 4 varieties: chopped walnuts, finely diced walnuts, chopped pecans and sliced almonds. They are all non-GMO, and with no sodium in them, it is seriously a dream come true.

I used a mix of the sliced almonds and finely diced walnuts in these Pad Thai Zoodles. I know most come with peanuts but since I used almond butter as part of the sauce, it went so, so well together.

I used zoodles as the noodle base but feel free to use whatever noodles you prefer. You can also add some extra protein like tofu, fish, etc. right on top!

  1. I love this plant based twist on one of my favorite dishes. I haven’t had Pad Thai in what seems like forever so this post is making me want some Pad Thai in my life. I understand that Thai food is for an acquired taste and that the spices as well as the sauces can bit a much for some. I still can’t believe that you don’t like Thai food, but I guess we are still cool haha 🙂
