Good to know!

This is a low-calorie version of the restaurant Pad Thai with no compromise on flavors but a huge compromise on calories (which is a good thing). The sauce used in the recipe is pretty much comparable to the one used in high-end restaurants. This recipe also keeps the noodle portion in check so that you don’t overload on starch.
