My love of Pad Thai

Pad Thai is a beloved ethnic dish that many people enjoy. The restaurant version is loaded with unhealthy oils, gluten, fats, soy, and other food additives like citric acid and natural flavors, for example. So once you begin a healing journey, it is a difficult dish to include. I loved the taste of Thai noodles as a kid, and even in my twenties, I would order this dish once a week at our local Thai restaurant.

Once I started healing, I had to spend some time grieving that I would probably never eat Pad Thai again. As I started to create more healthy recipes for my family, I thought, why not try doing a healthy Pad Thai?  I have experimented with many types of sauces over the years and finally was able to create a recipe that was not only delicious but actually loaded with healing foods as well. There are fresh herbs, cooked veggies, and clean pasta. This can be made with sweet potato noodles which keeps it as clean as possible, or you can add in millet or chickpea noodles for some extra body.

Tips on cooking Sweet Potato Starch Noodles

Often, when making sweet potato noodles, oil is added to keep the noodles from sticking to each other. I find that as long as you add a sauce immediately to the cooked noodles, there is no issue with sticking. Sweet potato noodles are actually made with the starch from sweet potatoes and that is why they can get sticky.  They will store well in the fridge. They will warm up nicely as leftovers with a small amount of water in the bottom of the saucepan. This also prevents them sticking to the pan as you reheat. You can buy sweet potato noodles here.
