  • Place all sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  • Follow package instructions and cook noodles. 
  • While the noodles are cooking, place a large pan or wok on medium heat. Once hot, drizzle oil and spread it around evenly.
  • Add vegetables/protein and cook until vegetables/protein are cooked through.
  • Mix in prepared sauce, 2 Tbs peanuts and cooked noodles. Cook for 1 minute and remove from heat. Serve hot and enjoy with toppings of your choice.

Cooking Notes:

  • If your peanut butter is high in sugar, don’t use additional coconut sugar.
  • Can substitute Pad Thai noodles for Vermicelli or any other rice noodles. 
  • Suggested vegetables: carrots, beansprouts, purple cabbage, celery, bok choy.
  • You shouldn’t need additional salt; the fish sauce and Tamari already have salt.
