Vegetable Pad Thai

Healthy and tasty vegetarian meal.



  1. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan; add noodles, stir to separate, then cover and remove from heat. Let stand 4 minutes, stirring once or twice, until softened. Drain; rinse with cold water. In a small cup, combine chili sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, and lime juice .
  2. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger; sauté 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add greens and cover with lid for 2 minutes or until wilted. Add bell pepper, carrots, and scallions; stir-fry 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables to a bowl.
  3. Return skillet to heat. Add remaining oil. When hot, add eggs and scramble just until set. Add to bowl with vegetables.
  4. Return skillet to heat and add chili-sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Add noodles; gently toss, using a pasta fork, for 1 minute, to coat. Return vegetables and eggs to skillet. Cook, tossing with pasta fork, for 3 minutes or until hot and noodles are tender. Stir in bean sprouts, if desired.
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl with cilantro and toss. Top with peanuts, if desired. Serve with lime wedges.

Tried making this, it ended up having very little flavor. what I tasted was a lot of salt, and not much else. The batch was so big that now I am stuck with leftovers and am going to be eating it for a week, and it took a LOT longer to make than 30 minutes. I do not recommend.

FYI fish sauce is not vegetarian. It's made from fermented fish, usually anchovies. You can leave it out though, just throw in a little more soy, chili, or event peanut sauce. Or you can order vegetarian fish sauce online (generally made from soy).

Not for me. Sounds tasty but it's 11 points!

Looks delicious and plan to make it this weekend... however I'm wondering about the fish sauce - this would render it non-vegetarian for people who care about being vegetarian, so I would omit that ingredient or find a substitute.
