Pad Thai Sweet Potato Meal Prep- 4 containers

This Pad Thai sweet potato meal prep is inspired by my Pad Thai zucchini noodles but simpler because it’s a meal prep and because I’m older and lazier. It’s recipe #3 in healthy meal prep series, preceded by teriyaki chicken meal prep and healthy breakfast meal prep. You can actually make any of iFOODreal’s recipes into a meal prep for your chance to win Cosori pressure cooker.

I decided to keep it vegetarian in an effort to eat less meat. With all the Instant Pot frozen chicken and Instant Pot fried rice recipe testing going on lately, we need to watch our animal products intake. But you can add chicken, instructions below. My healthy Pad Thai sauce is super simple, it takes just minutes to spiralize sweet potatoes. If you are not a huge fan of yams like me, you will love them more in a shape of noodles. And what you will love more is a fridge full of healthy lunches and dinners for a week!

Embrace the meal prep and you will see how much easier your life with work and kids will become! Check out how I do weekly meal prep for our family of 4.

How to Make Pad Thai Sweet Potato Meal Prep

First, spiralize sweet potatoes. Don’t peel to save time and consume vitamins and nutrients contained in the skin. North American produce is well pre-washed, so all it needs is another mild wash and scrub at home.

If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can chop sweet potato into 1″ cubes.

Next, in a small bowl, whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Scrambled eggs come out fluffier with water.

Load large skillet with sweet potato noodles, might look like a lot but they will shrink. Cook until noodles shrink a bit and are cooked to your desired doneness, about 5-7 minutes. You don’t want them too mushy but rather with some crunch. The only seasonings I use are soy sauce, fish sauce and maple syrup.

Make scrambled eggs. Self-explanatory.

Now, if you would like to add chicken to your sweet potato meal prep, cook it now after the eggs. I would use cubed chicken breasts or thighs, and pan fry with salt and pepper until cooked through.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare 4 plastic or glass meal prep containers. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, water, salt and pepper; set aside.
  • Preheat large ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat and swirl 1 tbsp of oil to coat. Add sweet potato, cover and cook for 5-6 minutes or until al dente, stirring a few times. Add garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce and maple syrup; stir a few times and divide between meal prep containers.
  • Return skillet to the stove, swirl 1 tbsp of oil and add egg mixture. Cook until scrambled, stirring (folding) constantly. Divide between meal prep containers. If you would like to add chicken, cook it now. I would use cubed chicken breasts or thighs, and pan fry with salt and pepper until cooked through.
  • Top each container evenly with bell pepper, cilantro, green onion, peanuts and red pepper flakes.

Store: Refrigerate for up to 5 days.

    Notes

    • *Pick large and wide yams that are easier to spiralize. I used 2 large ones.

      This recipe is a staple in my weekly meal planning. It is beautiful and so delish!! I always omit the fish sauce and replace with rice vinegar. I also recommend getting the spiralizer attachment for your Kitchen Aide mixer if you make this a lot.

    2. I made this! It’s so flavorful and the textures make it fun to eat! Finally found a use for that bottle of red boat fish sauce. After smelling I was afraid to use it! But it really works! Thanks for this one, it was nice to have to have lunch ready for us. Btw, I used chicken because we had it.
