Roberts is a big fan of pad Thai, but makes a cold version in salad form rather the hot dish found in Thai restaurants. To make it healthier, she subs spiraled zucchini and carrots in place of noodles and almonds for peanuts, because so many people have peanut allergies, she says.

You can make the vegetables at home if you have a spiralizer machine, but you can also pick them up at Sprouts or Whole Foods, Roberts says. And for those who don’t feel like cooking, Farm & Craft now has two locations: the original in Old Town Scottsdale and a new outlet on Seventh Street in Phoenix.

1 small carrot, spiraled
