Veggie Pad Thai
Pad Thai may actually not be a Thai dish at all! There are rumors that it is actually a Chinese dish, evident in that
its full name “kway teow pad Thai” is actually in a Chinese dialect and means “Thai-style stir-fried noodles.”
SERVES: 6 portions
RECIPE TIME: 10 - 15 Minutes
Try topping your Pad Thai with cilantro and freshly squeezed lime juice for a more authentic and flavourful taste!
- Want to add a bit of spice to your noodle dish? Use chili flakes or Sriracha hot sauce to pack that extra punch!
- When cooking rice noodles you may want to slightly undercook your rice noodles and soak them in cold water! That way, when they soak and absorb moisture from the other ingredients, they won’t become mushy and overcooked!
