Recipe: Pad Thai


This past May I had the opportunity to travel throughout Thailand for 2 months, which was a life changing experience! Thailand is known as 'The Land of Smiles' - it has the most kindhearted people, astonishing culture and gorgeous beaches. While in Railay, Thailand, I took a cooking class and learned how to make a few staple Thai dishes. My absolute favorite is Pad Thai - it is quick to throw together and is of course made with whole foods. Pad thai when made from scratch tastes slightly sweet with a hint of lime and spice!

Pad Thai
Serves 2

Ingredients:
2 cups of bean sprouts 
2 stocks of spring onion
1 inch cube of tofu -cut into thin slices and then into 1/4
2 garlic cloves minced
2 eggs
2 cups rice noodles; if dry soak in cold water for 1 hour (look for brown rice noodles; vermicelli works fine but a thicker noodle is ideal)
8 prawns
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
A few drops of soy sauce (I use Bragg's) 

Garnish: 
Peanuts, Lime, spring onion and bean sprouts

Preparation:
1. Heat oil on low heat in a wok
2. Mix sweet chili sauce, fish sauce and soy sauce into separate bowl
3. When hot add tofu and cook for 1 minute
4. Add the garlic and cook until brown - stir constantly
5. Add prawns and keep stirring
6. Once prawns are cooked add the eggs and stir until they are dry (cooked)
7. Add the rice noodles and keep stirring until the noodles are soft.
8. Once the noodles are soft add everything else and the sauce from step 2
9. Turn heat up to High and cook until everything is dry and soft; 
10. Add the garnish and Enjoy!


Every time I make this it reminds me of all the great friends and memories I made while in Thailand!

best in health,
