Thai Flat Noodles in Gravy Sauce

New recipe video of Thai Flat Noodles in Gravy (Pad Lad Na.) This is a dish I had many times as a child but after learning about the correlations of high sodium and hypertension, I don’t eat it as often. In collaboration with my parents, I recreated the recipe to omit two ingredients: soy sauce and fish sauce.

The reason for the omission, both soy sauce and fish sauce are high in sodium, but the recipe already includes plenty of sodium from the hoisin and oyster sauce. The addition of lime juice will bring in the missing flavors giving the dish a balanced taste of sweet, salty, and sour. For the complete recipe, check it out at our blog at TSDA. The link will be in my profile!
