Hello to you my food loving friend!
Hold on to your Thai-inspired knickers, because I got a soup that is about to blow yo mind.
I'm Boom Clap happy to be working with Progresso's new line of premium cooking stocks, that will knock the socks off your next soup They're now available in grocery stores nationwide (in the soup aisle), and are made by simmering real bones, vegetables and herbs to create a flavor that’s close to homemade.
So if you ain't got the time or stockpile of veggie ends to make the easiest veggie stock you'll ever make, these come in at a close second best. Granted the veggie blend isn't cooked with any bones..unless carrots and celery are now converted vertebrates, but delicious nonetheless.
One recipe that I find myself making time after time is my spaghetti squash pad thai. It's quick, simple, and cheap. But quite frankly, it's pulling an Adele and becoming overplayed far too fast.
So it had to reinvent itself. Shave it's head. Put an umbrella through a car window. Twerk itself all up on Robin Thicke. And there's no better way to come out on top than with a little something the French like to call...#soupyoself.
Since Progresso's veggie stock has such a depth of flavor on it's own, I knew it would help to one up this vegan pad thai recipe to anotha level.Print

Now I made this version vegan, but you could easily add cooked chicken, shrimp, or even some hard-boiled egg instead of tofu. I am available on nights and weekends for taste testings if needed.

So creative! Pad Thai was one of the first dates with my husband. We love it! Great idea to use spaghetti squash. Just shared on the Recipe ReDux FB page!

Fantastic!!! The perfect "winter way" to eat pad thai! Soup!
Love this so much! How creative! Pad Thai is hands down one of my fav dish..looks like I now need to try it with a spoon rather than chopsticks ;). Love the addition of spaghetti squash too!

This looks so easy and flavorful. I can taste the umami just looking at that bowl! Love that you used spaghetti squash instead of noodles - so fun!
