Vegan Pad Thai Ingredients

So if you hadn’t guessed by now I love the flavours in Thai food.

I have created 2 Thai curries on the blog already Vegan Thai Tofu Curry and a Veggie Thai Green Curry

It has been a LONG time since I have had a Pad Thai so the other day I tasked myself with testing one out and WOW it was incredible.

The flavour this Pad Thai packs is crazy from so few ingredients!

This easy 15 minute Pad Thai will be a complete crowd pleaser!

You can serve this up to the biggest Wagamama fans and I think they will be pleasantly surprised with the flavour this packs.

And be even more surprised that this is completely free-from gluten, dairy, eggs and refined sugar!

Pad Thai Sauce

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • Firstly heat a pan with sesame oil, add in the red onion, garlic and chilli and fry for a couple minutes
  • Now add the broccoli and pepper and fry together for 5 minutes until softened 
  • Meanwhile place some rice noodles on boil (follow packet instructions) and prepare the Pad Thai sauce by adding all the ingredients above into a small mixing bowl and mix until smooth
  • Now to the pan add a large handful of bean sprouts, crushed peanuts, lime juice and the sauce and mix. Cook together for a couple minute
