Easy Cilantro Lime Pad Thai

22 Mar

Easy Cilantro Lime Pad Thai - The First Year Blog #PadThai

For the spicy-food liking people, aka my husband!

8 ounces dried, wide and flat rice noodles (or any noodles will do)
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp fresh lime juice, plus wedges for serving
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Sriracha
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 large eggs, light beaten
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts

After making this recipe for the first time, we discovered that it needed more sauce. So if you like more flavor and sauce, I would suggest doubling the amount of brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, and sriracha.

1. Soak noodles according to package instructions, and drain. Or prepare regular noodles as directed.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, and Sriracha.
3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
4. Add scallion whites and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add eggs and cook, scraping skillet with spatula until eggs are almost set (about 30 seconds). Transfer eggs to a plate.
5. Add noodles, scallion greens, and sauce to skillet. Cook, tossing constantly, until noodles are soft (about 1 minute). Add egg mixture and toss to coat, breaking eggs up gently.
6. Serve noodles with lime wedges, topped with cilantro and peanuts.

    Sounds delicious! I love Thai food, but I’m always intimidated when it comes to making it from scratch.

    Hi Beth!! Gosh it’s been so long, how are you and Ryan doing?? Sometimes I see your posts for this blog on facebook and I happened to come across this recipe…it looks so yummy! I think my boyfriend and I are going to make it tomorrow night, but I was just wondering how many servings this recipe is for? Enough for 2? I hope this isn’t a stupid question haha. Your blog is so cute, I hope all is well :)


    • Beth @ The First Year Blog April 3, 2013 at 8:03 am #

      Hi Ruthie!! If you double the sauce and use about 8oz of noodles, then there should definitely be enough for 2! I hope all is well!
