Zoodles Pad Thai

Zoodles pad Thai is the perfect low carb meal. Zucchini noodles, that I like to call zoodles are the perfect alternative to pasta.  You get your noodle fix with non of the carbs!  Add a delicious sauce, shrimp, and peanuts for a Thai inspired dish with zero guilt.

Spiralize!

I created my zucchini noodles using the KitchenAid 5 Blake Spiralizer with Peel, Core and Slice attachment for my KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer. This has been the funnest little gadget.  You can core and peel apples, create shoestring fries, shred carrots – and so much more!

A Veggie Filled Meal

For this recipe I used:

  • 5 zucchini
  • 1/2 a head of napa cabbage
  • fresh cilantro
  • green onions

Including all of these greens really lightened up the dish and made it fresh and vibrant. Notice my black knife?  This baby has been my bff lately.  It’s the KitchenAid Ceramic 5′ Santoku. It is the perfect size for dinner prep!

Making your Zoodles Pad Thai

  1. Once your ingredients are prepped this dish comes together very fast!
  2. Add a few tablespoons of oil to your skillet (I’m using the KitchenAid Tri-Ply Copper 12′ Skillet) and cook your shrimp just until opaque.
  3. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add your zoodles and cabbage to the hot pan saute for about 2 minutes.
  5. Zucchini releases a lot of waters, so there is no need to add any.  These zucchini noodles will soften up really quick.

  6. Push the noodles to the sides of the pan and crack 3 eggs into the center.
  7. Do a quick scramble and then toss with the zoodles until egg is set.
  8. Pour your prepared sauce into the pan and add the shrimp back in.  T
  9. oss until sauce is warmed through.
  10. Remove the skillet from heat and add crushed peanuts, cilantro, and green onion.
  11. Serve Immediately.

This is the perfect lunch or quick dinner.  It will satisfy your thai craving without all of the carbs!
