I’ve been branching out and trying new recipes that I’ve never cooked before. I’ve heard so many good things about Thai food, but have yet to try it. I saw an easy recipe that I thought might be something I’d enjoy. I decided against purchasing a ready made Thai sauce as I was unable to pronounce many of the ingredients listed on the label. I used a recipe for homemade Thai sauce found below. I did not include noodles, but I’m sure you could. The recipe was super easy to follow and quick! The whole process took about 30 minutes. It will be perfect for a work night stir fry and no I don’t have a fancy wok – yet. The taste of this was delicious, but it was a bit hot which I love. I’m thinking the heat came from the serrano pepper and not the sauce, so go easy on that if you prefer it milder.
Pad Thai Sauce:
- 2 tbsp coconut yogurt
- 3 tbsp. ketchup
- 1 tbsp. coconut aminos (healthier alternative to soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 tsp. organic hoisin sauce
- 1⁄4 tsp. sesame oil
- 1⁄2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1⁄2 tsp. organic ginger (I used minced ginger in jar)
- 1⁄2 tsp. black pepper
- 1⁄2 tsp. organic cilantro
- 1⁄2 tsp. no-salt seasoning
1. In a bowl combine all ingredients and set aside until needed for your stir fry. Copyright © 2016 Danette May and Mindful Health, LLC
- 4-6 oz. chicken, cubed
- 1 small serrano pepper, minced
- 2 tbsp. Pad Thai sauce
- 1 cubed organic zucchini
- 1 chopped organic red bell pepper
- In pan, add 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, zucchini, red bell pepper, chicken and minced Serrano pepper. Cook until chicken browns and is fully cooked. (I actually had leftover grilled chicken that I cubed so it was done real fast. I cooked the vegetables for a bit first, then added the cooked, cubed chicken to warm.)
- Add pad thai sauce.
- Stir and warm.

This was a meal by itself, no sides required but you could make a nice garden salad with it. Be sure you have something to put out the fire in your mouth. I drank ginger kombucha.
If you try this recipe, please let me know how you liked it. It was part of a 30 day meal program I participated in recently with Danette May.
