Vegetarian Pad Thai

 Vegetarian Pad Thai

Who on earth does not LOVE asian cuisine? Rich in colour, texture and spices, swinging between the sweet and the sour… mmmm just describing it makes my mouth water

In my pantry, I always have the necessary ingredients to stir up an asian dish, but the one recipe I most recently discovered, (and don’t ask me WHY it had taken me so long to try) was the Pad Thai Recipe!! 

You can use any vegetables you have/like. I used carrots and bell peppers because I love the vibrant colours they added to my dish, plus they are in season and have numerous health benefits. This being said, do feel free to add more veggies. The sauce will do the trick, trust me.

At first you might think, gosh, those are way too many unknown ingredients (for the sauce) but trust me, invest in them, you can easily preserve them and use them again for this specific recipe or others to come 🙂
