We all love the classic pad thai that we can get at a restaurant, but these recipes are a nice change of pace from what you’re used to. The first recipe is made with organic black bean spaghetti, peanut satay sauce, mango, and shrimp and the second recipe is made with zucchini noodles AKA “zoodles.”

Pad thai originated as a Thai street food, but now, you can bring this authentic dish right to your kitchen. You can even make your Thai peanut sauce from scratch by using this awesome recipe. The combination of all of these ingredients may seem a little nuts at first, but trust me, it’s definitely a meal worth making. Warning: an explosion of flavor may erupt in your mouth.
