Ingredients
  • For the sauce:
  • 3 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. Thai chili paste
  • For the noodles:
  • 4 ounces or half a box brown rice noodles (Pad Thai noodles)
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 2 large, thick carrots*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ¼ yellow onion, cut into lengthwise strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1½ c. bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, chopped, divided
  • ½ c. roasted peanuts, chopped
  • ¼ c. fresh cilantro, chopped
Directions
  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, soak the noodles in cold water.
  3. Spiralize the zucchini and carrots into small noodle-shaped strands. In a large skillet set over medium heat, add 1½ tablespoons of olive oil. When hot, add the zucchini, carrot, onion and garlic and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until soft. Make a well or nest in the center of the pan and add the egg. Cook for a few minutes, until scrambled; transfer everything to a plate.
  4. Add the remaining half tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Drain the softened noodles and stir-fry for a minute. Turn heat up to medium-high, pour in the sauce and let it simmer for a minute or two, or until the the sauce thickens.
  5. Add in the vegetables, sprouts and the white parts of the green onions. Cook for a minute or two, then remove from the heat, serve and garnish with the remaining green onions, peanuts and cilantro.
Notes
*You'll want to use the thickest carrots you can find. They should be at least an inch in diameter, preferably way more.
-You can always by pre-made pad Thai sauce, however this is a delicious, homemade alternative.
-Add you favorite protein to the dish to bulk it up!
