Healthy Noodle-Free Pad Thai

Healthy Noodle-Free Pad Thai
Chicken pad Thai dish of stir fried rice noodles with a contemporary presentation.

Of all the many delicious Thai dishes out there, Pad Thai would have to rate up there as one of the best. Only problem is, it’s often cooked up with a few (unnecessary) nasties in it like; sugar, refined vegetable oils, MSG and of course (gluggy) noodles. For a super healthy, noodle free version without any of the usual nasties, try this one!
