Walnut Cranberry Pad Thai Recipe - Perfect for a Cool Spring Evening

By Amie Valpone, Culinary Marketing Consultant & CEO of the gluten-free blog, The Healthy Apple.

Here’s a quick and easy dish that is perfect for a cool spring evening. I opted for walnut butter instead of the usually peanut butter because it adds a nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with sesame oil and dried cranberries. You can serve this dish warm or room temperature – either way it’s sure to be a family favorite.

Get those chopsticks ready; this is a perfect dinner for tonight!
