This is a great alternative for conventional Pad Thai. Simple, easy to prepare, low fat, oil free and can also be nut free if you so desire!
Let us begin!
For the sauce, you will need:
– 2 to 3 zucchinis
– 1/4 cup pine nuts
– 2 small garlic cloves
– 1/2 yellow pepper
– 1/4 of an onion
– 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
– 2 tsp sesame seeds
– 1 tsp paprika
– 1 tsp turmeric
– juice of 1/2 lemon
– handful of basil
Optional: If you want to omit the nuts to have this be a nut-free dish, substitute 1/2 an avocado for the pinenuts and sesame seeds. It comes out great!
Throw all the ingredients in your high-powered blender, and pulse/blend until smooth and creamy, like so:
