Sweet Potato Pad Thai with Nuttzo

During high school, I ate at my first raw vegan restaurant. I was amazed at how they made spaghetti with long zucchinis strands— how did they do this, I thought! I soon found out about spiralizers. Sprializers allow you to slice long vegetable strands in seconds! I found my spiralizer on Craigslist for less than $10 and after a few years of letting it dust on the shelf during college, I have rediscovered its magic.

I love sweet potatoes, almost as much as I love pad thai— so why not combine them?! This recipe requires a spiralizer so that you can make long sweet potato noodles. My favorite nut butter, Nuttzo, makes the pad thai sauce have a delicious, seven nut and seed taste! As I recently announced, I have become an Athlete Ambassador for Nuttzo. Check out my post on what Nuttzo stands for and why I joined the Nuttzo family.

Ingredients:

  • You need a spiralizer for this recipe— look on Craigslist 🙂

  • Sauce Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons Nuttzo
  • 3 tablespoons lemon
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Recipe:

    1. I just went to look and does not say on it. I bought it on Craigslist and it did not come with a brand label. It is white and plastic though– sorry I can’t be more a help!
