Pad Thai is a stir-fried rice noodle dish, traditionally served as street food. In fact, pad means “rice,” and thai means “thai style” or “fried.”
I didn’t know until recently how incredibly easy it is to make pad thai — and it actually takes less time than waiting for take out. Why does take-out always take forever?! But you can’t get healthy, fresh pad thai from take out. Really, I promise, it’s incredibly easy.
Many of the ingredients are things you can always keep in your house. I do recommend using a quality fish sauce; it makes a huge difference. I like Red Boat.
