Quick Thai Fix …

16 Dec

You know, the Phad Thai packages from the ‘ethnic asile’ at the grocery store really aren’t that bad. For those of you who don’t know – Phad Thai is basically a Thai stir-fry dish made with rice noodles {that are gluten-free btw}, eggs, bean sprouts {look yuck, taste great}, chicken, shrimp, or tofu, and seasonings. You could buy the Phad Thai sauce and rice noodles separately – but these all-inclusive boxes work great. They look like this:

There isn’t much involved in cooking it. You basically get the noodles ready by letting them rest in some boiling water (removed from heat), scramble one egg and set to the side, cook some chicken/shrimp/tofu {I use fresh chicken cut into very small chunks}, add the rice noodles and sauce, saute for a bit … add the egg back in, add the bean sprouts … and Whala! Done. When you serve it, you can garnish it with some crushed peanuts and a wedge of lime. And, no – unlike most Thai dishes, these prepackaged dinners don’t really have too much spice to them – so they appeal to the masses.


Hope you take me up on the suggestion. Really simple and easy. Oh, but bean sprouts don’t last that long in the refrigerator – so don’t buy them too early! Enjoy! And, as always, let me know how it goes!
