Zucchini Pad Thai

If you are in the mood for pasta but trying to get your veggies in and stay away from gluten, zucchini noodles are your friend. They are so versatile, mild in flavor and ready to soak up anything that you add to them.  I love them in the Summer for a cold salad.  One of my favorite ways to serve them is a raw pad thai.  Instead of the usual pasta you have the zucchini noodles.  I make a flavorful and delicious sauce to toss them in and this becomes a delicious but healthy meal once topped off with something like baked tofu or tempeh!  This is a dish that is packed with nutrients, and fills you up but won’t weigh you down.
