Pad Thai


There are many great recipes out there for Pad Thai, this is a particularly easy one, that I can whip up in a pinch for a late dinner.  I often replace the shrimp with chicken, tofu, or organic ground beef. Any vegetables you have on hand will work, bell peppers go particularly well.

  1. I loved the sound of this dish and my partner and I were all ready to make it for a friend with food allergies when 🙁 my partner informed me it wouldn’t work, too many things in it that our friend can’t have, like the eggs, bean sprouts and maybe the fish sauce…
    No problem, u have tons of other recipes, I am sure I can find some thing that will work with the shrimp we have.. 🙂
