Pho-Pad Thai

Pad Thai!!!!

I’m a total tease.

This isn’t really pad thai. I’m not quite sure how the amazing chefs at the Thai restaurants make it. I’m pretty sure they have to go through Pad Thai training. It’s kind of like karate…gaining a black belt in pad thai.

To regain your trust, this does have a great spicy and peanut-y flavor…in noodle form! 🙂

So, I guess this could also be called Thai Peanut Noodles, also known as my Pho-Pad Thai.

I got my inspiration from good ‘ole TJs’ Satay Peanut Sauce.

Anyway, if you’re in the mood for a Pho-Pad Thai. This is your recipe. Mmm…

And you should make this for dessert. Just sayin’.

How-To

  1. i looove pad thai + your version looks perfectly acceptable to me (+ a lot healthier than some restaurant versions, too.) now you’ve got me craving pad thai at 9 AM! i haven’t tried that TJ’s sauce yet so i’ll definitely have to give it a try.

  2. Oh my gosh, you’re so much braver than I am! My boyfriend got me a Thai cooking class at Whole Foods for Christmas and I pretty much learned that cooking Thai food is a lazy person’s nightmare. This looks pretty simple though! I might be able to handle it 🙂
