Broccoli & Peanut Pad Thai

Channel the flavours of Bangkok in your favourite South Asian stir-fry! Golden-hued rice noodles intertwine with a medley of sautéed broccoli and red bell pepper. A luscious coating of sweet chili peanut sauce brings the signature pad Thai flavour, with a dusting of crushed peanuts for crunch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Rice Noodles
  • 6oz Broccoli
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Celery Stalk
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 oz Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 Lime
  • 2oz Peanut Butter
  • 1/2oz Crushed Peanuts
  • 2 Green Onions
  • 1oz Soy Sauce
  • 2g Ground Turmeric

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Ingredients: bring a large pot of water to a boil, cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets, thinly slice the green onions, halve the lime, thinly slice the red bell pepper, thinly slice the celery.
  2. Cook the Eggs: in large pan, heat 2 tsp oil over medium high until hot, whisk the eggs in a small bowl, cook the eggs for 2-3 minutes, stirring often until firm and scrambled, use a spatula to remove the eggs and set aside, wipe the pan clean.
  3. Cook the Veggies: in the same pan, heat 2 tsp oil over medium high until hot, cook the broccoli and celery for 5-8 minutes, stir the red bell pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
  4. Cook the Noodles: when the water comes to a boil, add the turmeric and rice noodles, cook for 5-7 minutes, until tender, strain and rinse the noodles in warm water, return the noodles to the pot.
  5. Mix the Sweet Chili Sauce: while the noodles cook, in a medium bowl add the soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, juice from the lime, peanut butter and 2 tbsp of water, whisk to dissolve the peanut butter, add the sauce, vegetables and eggs to the noodles, toss to coat.
  6. Serve: plate the broccoli and peanut Pad Thai, garnish with the peanuts and green onions.

Thoughts: I absolutely LOVE Pad Thai. I would definitely put it at the top of my list when it comes to favourite recipes. I love the mixture of noodles, peanut sauce and stir-fried veggies. This particular recipe was unique thanks to the turmeric noodles. I really liked the flavour of those but the peanut sauce needed a little more oomph. Don’t get me wrong, I still love this recipe, I just think I would add a little more soy sauce or maybe some rice vinegar to the sauce if I were to make it again.
