Tasty Tuesday

Today I came home and felt like making something different. I had some zucchini that was about to go bad so I decided to make some pasta. I ended up making another amazing new recipe with zoodles.  I looked up a few recipes and them made it a little healthier and with my own twists. It turned out not so pretty looking, but it tasted pretty amazing. Kinda sad I don’t have any left overs this time.

     Pad Thai Chicken with Zoodles  

Serves 2   Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 15  Total: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup cashews  (or roasted nuts)
  • 1/2 tbsp grapeseed oil (or peanut oil)
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp onion powder (or chopped onion)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 8 ounces of chicken tenderloins
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (to cook chicken)

For the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chili sauce
  • 1 tsp honey

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients for the sauce into a bowl, whisk together and set aside.
  2.  Beat together the eggs in a small bowl.
  3. Chop up or crush the cashews  ( I smashed them in a bag with a meat tenderizer)
  4. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add in oil, garlic and shallots. Cook for about 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the shallots begin to soften.
  5. Add in the sauce and whisk quickly so that the flour dissolves and the sauce thickens. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until sauce is reduced and thick.
  6. Once the sauce is thick, add in the zucchini noodles and cilantro and stir to combine thoroughly.
  7. Cook for about 2 minutes or until noodles soften and then add in the scrambled eggs and ground peanuts. Cook for about 30 seconds, tossing to fully combine.
  8. While the zoodles cook, chop up the chicken and toss in a skillet with some coconut oil for about 5-6 minutes.
  9. Plate onto dishes and garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve with lime wedges.
