Pad Thai – Peanut Noodle Stir Fry

Hello Dear Reader-

 

Who doesn’t love Peanuty Pad Thai Noodles? Well, I’m sure plenty of people don’t love them…but I haven’t met them yet. These noodles really are one of my favorite go-to  plant based  dishes that please the palates of omnivores, vegetarians and vegans too.

 

This version of Pad Thai is amped up with calcium packed bok choy and ready-in-a-snap frozen mixed vegetables. I love to use a fiber and iron rich brown rice pasta and my very versatile and yummy Asian Peanut Sauce. The dish comes together so quickly, it feels like cooking for cheaters.

 

But hey..there is nothing at all wrong with shortcuts in the kitchen.  In fact, I’m all about finding ways to pack our bellies full of the most healthy foods on the planet: grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Just like you, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen for the sake of delicious food. That’s why this recipe is such a hit in my books and perhaps it will be in yours too.

 

Here are the ingredients for the recipe.

 

The recipe follows my 5-step Healthy Vegan Made Easy system for eating an abundance of health promoting foods. Step 1) Dressing (Asian Peanut Sauce) Step 2) Green and Vegetable (arugula, sweet potato and beets) Step 3) Grain and/or Bean (brown rice and lentils) Step 4) Topping (sunflower seeds) Step 5) Herb, Spice, Condiment (basil)
