Chicken & Sweet Potato Pad Thai

Pad Thai is a dish that I’ve always really loved because of the balance of creamy peanut sauce, fresh vegetables, and hints of lime and cilantro. But if you’re like me, I usually feel pretty guilty eating a big portion of it since it can be pretty high cal. I decided to try a lighter variation of it with sweet potato noodles since I’ve been loving my spiralizer recently.

This recipe was absolutely delicious. Next time, I’ll definitely be making additional sauce since I love the peanut flavor so much.

Ingredients

  • 1 1” piece peeled fresh gingerroot
  • ½ cup smooth cashew, almond, or peanut butter
  • ¼ – ½ cup water (see cook’s tip)
