Thai Zucchini Noodle Peanut Bowl

Thai Zucchini Noodle Peanut Bowl

I love Pad Thai but I don’t always love how heavy it can feel. That’s why I made this Zucchini Noodle bowl to share a healthier version of the famousEast Asian dish.  I made this dish vegetarian, there is protein and plant based fats with the cashews and peanut butter but adding some grilled chicken or shrimp would be delicious too!

  •     ¼ Cup shredded purple cabbage
  •     Handful of cashews ( to top and add crunch)

  •    2 TBSP Honey
  •    2 TBSP Rice Vinegar
  •    3 TSPFreshly grated Ginger
