Enjoy Vegetable Pad Thai from your own kitchen tonight. This incredible dish is easy to make and ready in 30 minutes or less.

Pad thai is a dish from Thailand that has been around for centuries. It is very flavorful and includes noodles, vegetables, and eggs.

 

Pad thai is typically served as a quick-cooked snack food sold on the street. It has no specific rules about what it should be topped with, but you can find pad thai topped with all sorts of things from papaya salad, tofu, tamarind sauce, and cherry tomatoes.

A traditional pad thai dish is often overly saturated in oil. This is a healthier version of the dish. I like to use brown rice noodles because they give this vegetable pad thai more fiber, which will leave you feeling fuller longer.

How to Make Vegetable Pad Thai

 

Prepare the brown rice noodles according to package instructions. Rinse under cool water and set aside.

 

Add the sauce ingredients to a small skillet on medium-low heat. Stir continually until the peanut butter is melted and the sauce is heated through (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the skillet from the heat and set it aside.

 

Add the sesame oil to a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat. Add the shallot, white part of the green onions, carrots, and red pepper. Cook, stirring frequently until the vegetables are crisp, tender, and develop some color (about 4-5 minutes).

 

Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet with a spatula. Add the whisked eggs to the other side. Cook, stirring and chopping frequently with the spatula until the eggs are cooked through and broken into very small pieces (about 4-5 minutes).

 

Add the cooked rice noodles, one-third cup of chopped peanuts, and the warm sauce to the skillet. Stir to combine everything together.
