“This was created one evening, when I was in "need" of a Pad Thai. These were the things I had on hand, thus it's creation. It can easily be made on stove top (much faster).Don't be afraid to add ingredients, or to leave any out. It's all a matter of taste, but this is the way we enjoy it most!I enjoy this more than going out for a Pad Thai now!”
