Vegan Pad Thai 

An incredibly easy recipe for pad thai that puts an end to ordering it from any restaurant in your area.  This is actually a peanut free spiralized vegan pad thai recipe.  That sounds like a mouthful already so just know it’s also soy free!  As always, no compromises on taste because high quality ingredients always yield the best meals.  


Peanut Free Spiralized Vegan Pad Thai

This pad thai recipe is vegan, peanut free, very allergen friendly and healthy!

Pad thai is traditionally made with peanuts, and has either a vegetable or animal protein base.  However, sharing a classic vegetarian pad thai just doesn’t align with the kinda easy recipes goal.

The goal is make recipes that are allergen friendly and can easily be modified for different diets, (in this case vegan).  Many people decided to adopt a plant based diet this year.  However, many vegan recipes include grains and allergens that don’t agree with some autoimmune conditions & digestive problems.  Naturally, writing this recipe meant removing the allergens in the classic version, (soy, peanuts, egg) and making it vegan.  

If you are on the GAPS/SCD diet or avoiding starches in general for fitness goals omit the rice noodle and spiralize an extra zucchini for veggie noodles only.


Gluten Free Pad Thai Recipe

This is a healthier take on the classic pad thai (even vegetarian).  Although pad thai is seemingly healthy; vegetables, noodles, and sauce right?  Except, that includes sugar, hidden gluten and excess sodium in MSG, soy sauce, and other ingredients used for flavoring.  Plus, the oils used to cook the rice noodle and vegetables are usually not the best (canola, and other seed oils) which are known to cause inflammation and are linked to weight gain.  


Easy Pad Thai Recipe 

Peanuts are one of the “big 8” food allergens.  Many schools have banned them from cafeterias because of life threatening reactions.  For instance, a few reactions are nausea, hives, itchy skin & throat, and anaphylaxis.  Peanut allergies do not have a direct cause.  However, many families have succesfully used a wholesome diet, supplements and care to help alleviate peanut allergies.   See more on peanut allergies here


Spiralized Pad Thai 

You can chop or spiralize the vegetables for this recipe.  If you are using a spiralizer, make the thin spaghetti shape (I used blade C of the inspiralizer).  Honestly, it doesn’t change the recipe but it does cut out the process where I chop all the vegetables and make a mess.

The fact it takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish makes this the perfect meal for when you need something filling and delicious without hours of slaving away at the stove.  While the spiralized vegetables were cooking I made a small batch of teriyaki sauce and just before it thickened I drizzled it onto the vegetables and added the noodles.  This is completely optional but definitely adds a kick of flavor and makes the meal that much more savory!


Soy + Egg Free Pad Thai

Usually, pad thai sauce is loaded with sugar and sodium.  This healthy dish is lightly sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.  You can make the sauce thicker adding a bit more, especially if you are not used to following a sugar free or low sugar diet.
