Peanut Butter Pad Thai
In: Healthy Foods, Mains, Recipes0

This vegan peanut butter Pad Thai was a great hit when we had guests over. It contains all the right elements of Pad Thai, but it is heavy on the vegetables, making it healthier! If you don’t have all the veggies I included here, no problem…use what you have!

It easily doubles! You may even want to double the sauce in case you want to add a bit more. You can put the rest of the sauce into the fridge for another night! The sauce is great with spring rolls or as a salad dressing.
