Low-FODMAP Pad Thai Perfection Recipe; Gluten-free, Vegetarian
August 14, 2017
This is the rich, creamy decadent low-FODMAP Pad Thai recipe that you and I have been waiting for!
While eating out low-FODMAP is much simpler than it used to be, Thai and other Asian restaurants aren’t the easiest choices. Many sauces are so complex and elaborate, that it may be tricky to navigate these venues safely.
But take heart! This low-FODMP Vegetarian Pad Thai Recipe is rich and peanutty, and better than any restaurant Pad Thai I have ever had. I guarantee you will love this low-FODMAP Pad Thai. It is also so easy.
Be healthy and happy,
