Chilled Pad Thai

Chilled Pad Thai

Pad thai doesn't have to be an extravagant creation. It also doesn't have to be hot to be totally delicious. And finally, it doesn't have to have an ingredient list that calls for shi* like mirin or Chinese cooking wine that you can only order online or five spiced tamarind paste flavored with unicorn tears.

Curried Turkey Cauli Zoodle Bowl with Easy "Peanut" Sauce

This is a "throw everything in the skillet" type of meal. Which are often my favorites. There's nothing better than when culinary ingenuity meets laziness. Thai flavors are among my favorites - particularly that peanuty sauce you seem to see at every Thai joint.

Homemade almond butter takes patience. Lots of patience. But let's not mistake patience with hard work. Because it takes none of that. Literally none. Making nut butter is so easy it hardly qualifies as a recipe. It takes patience because you have to wait through a solid 10-20 minutes of straight blending to get the creamy end result...it's loud...but worth it.
