This Pad Thai has got to be one of my favourite meals, which is a pretty big thing for me to say because god knows I’ve made a lot of meals. I just add in whatever veggies I have on hand but my non negotiable’s are that they are crisp, fresh, and always covered in the satay sauce. You’ll regret it if you don’t make enough sauce, trust me.
I could rave about this lettuce all day but I’m going to save that for another post. In saying that it is hands down the best, freshest, crisp lettuce I have ever eaten! One of the many foods that is going to get me through this hot Australian summer.
Now, tempeh. My new favourite thing to incorporate in my diet. My wonderful yoga teacher put me onto it and now I’m hooked. It’s usually made form fermented soybeans, but their are versions of other beans out there. e.g. chickpea or fava beans.
I love the nutty firm texture plus it is high in protein, copper, manganese, riboflavin and niacin ✔✔✔✔✔
Is there any better way to eat cauliflower ? Roasting it just makes it so soft and flavoursome with the right amount of crunch on the edges. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I used to think cauliflower was a bit of a meh vegetable, this salad has totally changed it for me. This combo is meant to be together, I first got this idea from Jess Cox Nutritionist (genius) and have put my own little twist on it. I eat this for a main meal or as a side, plus I always make sure I have some leftover to brighten my lunch for the next day #yayleftovers. This recipe is extremely versatile, use whatever beans, seeds or grains you want. I sometimes add in grated beetroot, and I’ve made it with sesame seeds and cannelinni beans >> it always turns out great.
So next time you get a cauliflower, make sure this recipe is on your hit list.
