Best Ever Pad Thai Bowls

A recipe for Best Ever Pad Thai Bowls that will satisfy your take-out cravings once and for all. Made with rice noodles, tamari, lime, coconut sugar, peanuts, chives and a few bean sprouts. 

Pad Thai is rated as one of the most delicious foods in the world and I pretty much lived on it when we visited Thailand a few years back.

There are many variations of pad Thai, but I like to keep things simple when I make this dish, and use very little ingredients, which also makes it a great dish for self-isolation cooking.

What is Phad Thai?

Pad thai, or Phad Thai, is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as street food and at most restaurants in Thailand as part of the country’s cuisine. It is typically made with rice noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or tofu, peanuts, a scrambled egg, and bean sprouts,

Pad Thai is a dish that hits five different flavour profiles all at once – salty, sweet, bitter, sour and spicy. 

What I love about Pad Thai is how simple it is to make and how few ingredients you really need.
