One of my favorite dishes when eating at Thai restaurants is Pad Thai. It’s a simple mix of noodles, vegetables and meat and usually has a bit of a kick to it depending on which spices are used in the recipe. Obviously, when you are trying to keep your meals clean, Pad Thai falls just a bit short. With that said, I’ve found a Paleo version that uses zucchini in place of noodles from PaleoTable.com:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 medium to large zucchinis
3 large carrots
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced thin
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
4 Tbsp almond butter
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce, pureed
1 lime, juiced
2 green onions, white and green parts sliced thin
