Kimchi and Zucchini Pad Thai

Our SponsorsHay House, Inc.

The sweet-and-sour tamarind sauce balances perfectly with spicy kimchi and smoked tofu. If you don’t have a spiralizer, run a peeler along length of zucchini to make large ribbons and slice into strands with a knife to resemble noodles. Alternatively, try using a julienne peeler available at kitchen stores.Kimchi-and-Zucchini-Pad-Thai-FINAL
