Skinny Zucchini Noodle Pad Thai

This is by far one of my new favorite dinners. I have an obsession with pad thai, but, I hate how fattening it is! If you like pad thai, I am positive that you are going to love my healthy alternative!

Ingredients
  1. 2 medium sized zucchinis
  2. 2 tbsp. ketchup
  3. 2 tbsp. lime juice
  4. 1/2 red pepper
  5. 1 tbsp. sugar-free apricot preserves
  6. 2 tsp. crushed dry-roasted peanuts
  7. 2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
  8. 1 tsp. lite/low-sodium soy sauce
  9. 1/4 tsp. chopped garlic
  10. 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper, or more to taste
  11. 1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  12. 6 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces (optional)
  13. 1/2 pound of shrimp (optional)
  14. Dash each salt and black pepper
  15. 2 cups chopped broccoli
  16. 1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
  17. 3/4 cup 1-inch scallion pieces
  18. Double if serving more than two!
Instructions
  1. Peel and then spiralize the zucchini with a spiralizer (you can get a cheap one on my eBay collections- hit the link in my side bar!) Heat the zucchini noodles in a bowl with water in the microwave until soft, or cook in a pan with water until soft. Set aside.
  2. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine ketchup, lime juice, preserves, peanuts, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Stir thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Spray a wok or large skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat on the stove. Add egg substitute and scramble until fully cooked, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. Remove wok/skillet from heat (if needed, clean it once cooled), re-spray, and return to medium-high heat. Add chicken and season with salt and black pepper. Add broccoli, bean sprouts, red pepper, scallion pieces, shrimp and 2 tablespoons water. Stirring occasionally, cook until chicken is no longer pink, the shrimp has turned pink, and broccoli is tender, about 4 minutes.
  5. Add sauce, stir to evenly distribute, and continue to cook for about 2 minutes, until sauce is hot. Add scrambled egg substitute and noodles, mix well, and continue to cook until hot, about 3 minutes.
  6. If you like, season to taste with additional crushed red pepper. Top with crushed peanuts, scallions, serve, and enjoy!
