More About This Recipe
  • With its unmistakeable complex flavor, glossy noodles coated with spice, fresh toppings, and crunchy peanut garnish, homemade Pad Thai sounds difficult to make, but this version is so stinkin' easy you're going to flip every single last lid you have. You can use boxed Thai noodles (thick rice noodles work just fine). Once you've cooked the noodles and prepared the rest of the ingredients then you seriously just toss it all together -- the noodles, the super zingy dressing, the bean sprouts, the scallions, the eggs, and cilantro. Garnish with peanuts and that's it. So easy! Add some extra lime juice if you want more zing. And you can always toss in some sauteed chicken or shrimp if you want to add more protein to the mix.
