Our recipe for Pad Thai is incredibly easy to make, requires very little time, and is absolutely delicious. It is perfect for those nights when you feel like getting takeout but want something a little more balanced and fresh. We’re keeping it simple and featuring classic ingredients like carrots, scallions, mushrooms, and peanuts, and adding a little tofu for healthy plant-based protein. You can use any veggies you have in your fridge for this one so feel free to swap out ingredients based on your preferences.
While Pad Thai is traditionally made with Tamarind Concentrate , this ingredient can be tricky to find in U.S. grocery stores. We love using Tamarind to achieve the familiar Pad Thai flavor we all know and love, but have also had success with using lime juice instead. We’re giving you both options below so whatever you have access to will be perfect.
Tip: Have everything chopped up before you begin cooking. While this is true for all recipes, it is particularly important here as this dish comes together so quickly.
