How to create a Totally Slurpable Pad Thai Zoodle Bowl for two
Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and combine gently with fingers:
1 medium zucchini spiralized (or shredded coarsely)
2 leaves of Swiss or rainbow chard or kale, de-stemmed and sliced thinly (or spinach sliced thinly)
1 cup cabbage, shredded (sub with bagged shredded cabbage for easier prep)
½ cup edamame, shelled and thawed
1 medium shredded carrot
1 medium red pepper, sliced
½ cup shredded cucumber
1/2 cup sliced scallions/green onions/spring onions
1 cup cooked brown rice (can also sub with cooked whole grain linguini or spaghetti if you eat wheat, which goes great with zoodles!)
Sesame seeds, optional
Put the veggies you love in your bowl (leave out any you don't have on hand or love and put more or less of any to make it the way YOU want it!) For prep, the point is you want all the veggies to be in a similar shape/size - see my bowl below. Portion out two servings. Drizzle each portion with Totally Slurpable Pad Thai Dressing (below) and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Store salad and dressing separately in the fridge and mix on serving.
