Easy Pad Thai

Easy Pad Thai

I absolutely love Thai food. Ditto for my family. And while we love going out for Thai, it is fun and easy to make Thai dishes at home too. Here is a very simple recipe.

8 ounces dried flat rice noodles/pad thai noodles (I like Annie Chun’s Brown Rice Pad Thai noodles which I found at HEB)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

juice of 2 medium sized limes plus wedges for serving

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon sriracha or chili oil

2 teaspoons grapeseed, peanut, or sesame oil (or combination of two or three)

8 scallions, chopped (separate white from green parts)

3 garlic cloves

2 large eggs

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

4 shredded carrots

1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Soak noodles according to package directions and rain. In a small bowl or pyrex measuring cup, whisk together brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, and chili sauce. Heal oil over medium high heat. ( I used a cast iron skillet.) Add white part of scallions and stir fry for a minute or two. Add eggs and scramble until set. Transfer to a plate. Add noodles, scallion greens, and sauce to skillet. Cook and toss until noodles are soft (1 to 2 minutes). Add eggs and toss to coat, breaking up eggs. Serve noodles and top with lime wedges, cilantro, carrots, peanuts and an additional spoonful of chili sauce if desired.
