Our veggie version of pad Thai is better for you and better for your budget than takeout. All of the traditional ingredients come together in a skillet, but we swapped sweet potato noodles for rice noodles so you can still enjoy a takeout-style dinner without the guilt—or the tipping.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups fresh sweet potato spirals
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 small)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • Lime wedges, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat. Beat eggs, garlic sauce and fish sauce with whisk; add egg mixture to skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until eggs are just firm but still moist. Remove to small bowl; reserve.
  • 2
    In another small bowl, mix brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce and pepper flakes.
  • 3
    In same skillet, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil; heat over medium heat. Stir in sweet potatoes, bell pepper and green onions. Cover; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are crisp-tender. Add sauce mixture; stir until vegetables are coated. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until sauce has been mostly absorbed. Stir in eggs. Top with cilantro and peanuts; serve with lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Sweet potato spirals are also called sweet potato noodles or swoodles.
  • tip 2
    If you’re using prespiralized sweet potatoes, measure by the ounce. We used about 16 oz sweet potato spirals in this recipe.
  • tip 3
    If the sweet potatoes start browning too fast, turn heat down, and continue cooking until tender.
  • tip 4
    Chili-garlic sauce is a blend of coarsely ground mild chiles, garlic, vinegar and salt that can be used as either a condiment or a cooking ingredient and can be found in the Asian section of the grocery store.
