Healthy Stir-Fry Thai Noodle Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Thai Drunken Noodles

Love Thai takeout but hate the grease and fat that comes with it? FitSugar reader Dara8182 has just the fix for you. She posted her recipe for healthier Thai Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao) in our Healthy Recipe community group.

This recipe is my clean and healthy version of the takeout staple. Called drunken noodles because the dish was designed for late night partiers who needed a pick-me-up, the basil, chilies, and lime create a unique flavor that is highly addictive. I made some changes to this dish, substituting brown rice vermicelli for broad rice noodles and adding lots of veggies.

Find out what goes into this delicious dish after the break!

1 package brown rice vermicelli noodles
1lb ground white meat turkey
2 cups broccoli crowns, washed and chopped
2 cups beans sprouts, washed
2 medium carrots, sliced into matchsticks
1 medium onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 thai chilies, minced (can substitute serrano, habanero or jalepeno)
2 tbsp thai basil, shredded (can substitute regular sweet basil)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
