    I’ve been searching for a good pad Thai recipe and I’m so glad I tried this one! Absolutely incredible. Love love love this.

    Soooo happy that I stumbled upon this recipe!!! Flavorful just like you’d expect from a pad thai, yet giving up all the extra grease and oils. Made this for my family and we enjoyed it so much we decided to make it a second time and incorporate some additional veggies like broccoli, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and shredded carrots. I would have incorporated baby corn as well, but we couldn’t find any at the store. Next time. Second time around, we had dinner with my father over, and he enjoyed it as well! It is a great dish by its self, or paired along with a fried rice, like I chose the second time around. Don’t skip the garnish of chopped peanuts, green onions and cilantro. The lime juice is the cherry on top. We also added tamarind the second time and it gave it a deeper flavor. No one had any idea it was any type of “healthy” version! BONUS!

    I didn’t have bean sprouts so I added a bag of frozen broccoli instead. I found we needed more sauce in order to get the amounts of coverage we wanted for the veggies/meat, and the noodles. I kept adding a splash more of the liquid ingredients and another glob off peanut butter until it looked right. It did taste good!!

    Added broccoli and water chestnuts, added ½ more liquid-plus lemongrass, Ginger, and chili paste...made mine with butternut squash spirals. My man had regular noodles and mine was much better. Saving this one!

    Yummy flavours and wasn’t hard to make. I ended up adding sugar snaps and red capsicum with bean sprouts for my vegetables.

    Very good flavour. Mostly followed the recipe, but ultimately got frustrated with trying to figure out amounts of each ingredient while watching the I kinda winged it and it turned out great after all.

    Really authentic tasting Pad Thai! We like adding a little bit of coarse cane sugar sprinkled on top for an even more authentic taste. Not my 9-yr old's favorite, but the rest of us loved it!!!
