Baby Corn & Snow Pea Pad Thai




I love pad thai; it's usually the first thing I look for on any Thai menu. I also do a reasonable number of easy stir-fried dishes at home, so really, I don't know why I don't make this more often.

The traditional Thai recipe would have fish sauce, but for a veggie alternative, soy sauce works just fine.

Baby Corn & Snow Pea Pad Thai
Serves 2

80g (3oz) flat noodles (dried weight)
80g (3oz) snow peas (mange tout)
100g (4oz) baby sweetcorn
150g (5oz) shredded vegetables (carrot, cabbage, bean sprouts, bamboo)
30g (1oz) unsalted peanuts
2tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp shaoxing wine
juice of ¼ lime
a large handful of fresh coriander leaf
  1. Soak the noodles in a bowl of hot water for 5-10 minutes until soft, taking care to avoid sticking (I find it helps to fan out the noodles before adding them to the water).
  2. Stir-fry the vegetables for a couple of minutes over a medium heat. (I use a high-quality non-stick pan which doesn't require any oil, but if you don't have one, you could add 1tbsp sunflower oil.)
  3. Add the noodles, peanuts, soy sauce, and shaoxing wine to the pan.
  4. Stir-fry for a further 5-10 minutes, until the noodles are cooked through.
  5. Squeeze the lime juice over the noodles and stir in the coriander just before serving.
  6. Serve with extra lime wedges.

Sounds delicious! I would definitely use soy sauce rather than fish sauce, though!

Thai food is my favorite, and pad Thai is a really delicious dish. I've never considered making it at home because I was afraid it'd be too complicated, but you've made it into something even I can do! :)
