This gluten-free vegan Pad Thai recipe is delicious and so healthy!
This Pad Thai recipe is absolutely delicious, and it is the perfect healthy alternative to the traditional dish. It is gluten-free, egg-free, peanut-free, and vegan.
Pad Thai is a stir-fried rice noodle dish that is commonly served in Thailand. Traditional dishes can have meat or tofu, peanuts, egg, bean sprouts, and other vegetables. However, Pad Thai is usually the most unhealthy option at a restaurant, due to the sodium and fat levels.
This gluten-free vegan Pad Thai recipe is one of the easiest and tastiest, especially if you are craving an extra special dish.
I used rice noodles to keep the dish gluten-free. Additionally, I used coconut aminos in place of soy sauce. Needless to say, this Pad Thai is ridiculously healthy. The maple syrup gives it a hint of sweetness.
The pad thai is sweet, savory, but also tangy and made from the freshest and simplest ingredients.
- 1/2 head broccoli, cut into small florets
- 1 red pepper, sliced
- 1/2 sweet onion, sliced
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1 package rice noodles (optional, substitute a steamed sweet potato to go grain free)
- 1/2 cup coconut aminos (Coconut Secret brand is my favorite!)
- 1/4 cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (or sub 1/2 tsp dried cilantro)
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional, omit if you don't like spicy)
- 3 scallions, chopped
