Vegetable Pad Thai

Source: Everyday Food, May 2010


  • 8 ounces dried, wide, and flat rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus wedges for serving
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 large eggs (optional), lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted, salted peanuts


  1. Soak noodles according to package instructions. Drain. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, lime juice, and soy sauce.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add scallion whites and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add eggs (if using) and cook, scraping skillet with a rubber spatula, until eggs are almost set, about 30 seconds. Transfer egg mixture to a plate. Add noodles and soy-sauce mixture to skillet; cook, tossing constantly, until noodles are soft and coated with sauce, about 1 minute. Add egg mixture and toss to coat, breaking eggs up gently. Serve noodles with lime wedges, topped with scallion greens, cilantro, and peanuts.

Cook's Note

Any dried, flat rice noodles will work; find them in the Asian-foods section. Easy add-ins: Before adding the noodles, toss thinly sliced chicken breast or peeled and deveined shrimp into the pan.

    I loved this. I added zucchini and mushrooms sliced match-stick style, and also coarsely shredded carrot. I used larger, flat noodles. Yum!

    I have made this a few times for friends and family. Everyone really likes it. It is not the best pad thai I have ever had, but quick, tasty and easy. I would recommend adding 1tsp fish sauce to the soy-sauce mixture for a little extra flavor.

    Good recipe, but I think the bigger noodles are better--soaks up more sauce. Also, could use more veggies, like carrots, maybe mushrooms, etc.

    This is delicious and si,ple. Add cooked shrimp, chicken or beef to complete the meal. It can be reheated by covering the dish and micorwave, the steam will soften the noodles again. My kids loved this!
