We like to experiment around here with our Healthy On You® spice blends in all kinds of recipes from as many cultures as we can. So watch out as we take on Pad Thai and make it our own. We’ve changed some ingredients around and added some in, and that is beauty and creativity of cooking! So excuse us while we add some nontraditional additions to this recipe, but it all comes together to make a fantastic one pot meal that you and your family will enjoy. Our Spice Spice Baby Asian 6 Spice is perfect for this recipe, especially if you are craving something savory (yet sweet). It’s loaded with all of the best veggies too: Shiitake mushrooms, purple cabbage, carrots, and peas (talk about a great recipe when you need to clean out the fridge…). Feel free to swap in shrimp or tofu, but whatever you do, MAKE THIS TONIGHT! ⁠

FOR THE NOODLES

  • 8 oz dried pad thai noodles
  • 8 oz fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup carrots, julienned

Directions

MAKE THE SAUCE

  1. In a small bowl, add the sauce ingredients and whisk together. Set aside.

MAKE THE PAD THAI

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4-5 quarts of water to a boil. Add the noodles and stir well. Allow to boil for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, rinse and set aside.
  2. Heat a wok or a medium saucepan and add the oil. When hot and shimmering, add the mushrooms and sprinkle with 1 tsp of the Spice Spice Baby seasoning. Stir fry the mushrooms for 5 minutes and remove to a paper towel to drain.
  3. Keep the wok heated and add the chicken to the remaining oil. Add the remaining tsp of the Spice Spice Baby seasoning. Stir fry the chicken for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the pan and set on a paper towel.
  4. In the same pan, add the eggs and scramble in the pan. When the eggs come together into a soft scramble, add the noodles and ½ of the sauce. Stir well and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the peanuts, peas, cabbage and carrots and combine. Allow to cook for 2 additional minutes until the cabbage and carrots soften.
  6. Add back in the mushrooms and chicken and the additional sauce. And stir well until heated.
  7. Served with chopped Thai basil, cilantro, chopped peanut, and sesame seeds on top. Enjoy!

Dahl And Rice

here comes the yum

I’m focusing on the Dhal in this recipe because it is hands down, delish. This is a spin on my mom’s dahl recipe. She used yellow split peas but I use red lentils. They cook much faster and have a more creamy texture.

Herby Popovers

bohemian rosemary let the good thymes roll

These popovers are easy, yummy and simple! They make the perfect snack or appetizer. You can also get creative with the flavors, since the popovers themselves are a blank slate for experimentation. In this version, we used our Healthy On You® Bohemian Rosemary Sea Salt and Let the Good Thymes Roll Spice Blend. We have so much fun making this recipe as a family, you’ll want to give this a try!

Heirloom Tomato And Leek Tart

provence youve been gone

It’s tomato season! If you have a garden, growing tomatoes are a test of patience that can sometimes make you want to pull your hair out. Luckily, local farmer’s markets are overflowing with tomatoes so sweet ripe tomatoes should be easy to come by. This tart is perfect for a main course at brunch and also works well with a side salad for a light dinner -with a glass of vino (wink, wink!)
