Make It Monday: Slow Cooker Turkey Pad Thai

I just love using my slow cooker, don't you? You are going to love that this recipe will help you use up some leftover turkey too! (Think post-Thanksgiving!) Plus this is a Clean Eating Recipe too! You could make it gluten-free by using gluten free pasta.

2 T low sodium soy sauce

1 C napa cabbage, chopped and packed
1/2 C cilantro packed
1/2 med. onion, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 scallions, chopped
8 oz. whole wheat organic linguine

How many servings will this recipe yield?

Mom of Two said...

I am trying to remember the last time I made it how many it made. I am thinking it would easily serve 4.

Making this today but with chicken (raw) and adding kale just because I have it already. Smells Devine already!!

Mom of Two said...

Can't wait to hear how it turns out with the addition of kale and using raw chicken instead. I only used leftover turkey because the first time I made it was after Thanksgiving and wanted to come up with a new recipe for leftover turkey.

Are there other options to substitute the raw sugar?

Audra you can sub stevia for sugar. It is a 1:1 ratio. Hope this helps :)

Hi! I'm Rebecca from I shared a link to your recipe on my post

I want to make sure it's ok with you that I did so. Please let me know if you want me to remove your image.

I would love if you could share a little love by sharing the post on your social media accounts. After all, in the end it will help you get more traffic too.

I am also open to other collaboration ideas so please let me know if you have ideas of how we can help grow each other’s blogs.

Get More Traffic

In case you're not already a member of our sister site, I would like to invite you to join it.

I was frustrated with how much work it is to submit to food submission sites so I created my own site kind of like Food Gawker. The main difference is that you don't have to submit each recipe. All you need to do is fill out this form - and we will add your recipe images for you with a link to your site (no recipe on our site). We will also promote your content by pinning both directly from your site and from our site.

Bonus - when you join Inspiring Cooks, you can also request to be added to My Natural Family’s most popular group boards on Pinterest.

Make More Money

I make over six-figures on My Natural Family and I wrote a blog post all about how I do it. I think/hope there are some ideas in it that could help you make more money with your blog -
