What is Pad Thai?

Chances are you have pad Thai as takeout. However, you can make it at home with fresh ingredients. Pad Thai is a stir fry style dish that is made with rice noodles, peanuts, scrambled eggs, bean sprouts, and tossed together in a delicious Pad Thai sauce. It’s simply a comfort food in Thailand.

Variations

While the mushrooms are meaty and filling, you can also add:

  • Protein: Feel free to add shrimp, steak or chicken to your pad thai.
  • Vegan or Vegetarian: Use tofu and leave out the eggs.
  • Peanut Butter: Feel free to use any variety of peanut butter to this dish in place of peanuts for a creamier texture and sauce.

Ingredients

  • Monterey Mushrooms Sizzling Sautés™ Thai Mushroom Kit
  • Dried goods: rice noodles, soy sauce, rice vinegar, roasted peanuts
  • Fresh Produce: garlic, bean sprouts, bell pepper, green onions, cilantro, limes

How to Make Mushroom Pad Thai

Cook the Noodles: The first step is to bring a pot of water to a boil. Add in the rice noodles and cook until tender, about 7-10 minutes. Be sure to rinse the noodles under cold water.

Sauté The Vegetables: In a skillet or wok, sautee the Monterey Mushrooms with olive oil for 8-10 minutes, until tender. Remove the mushrooms, set aside in a bowl and mix with the Pad Thai Sauce. Add the mushrooms back into the skillet with 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil. Next, toss with the slices of red bell pepper and garlic. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes.

Then, push the garlic and pepper to the side. Add in the eggs and scramble. After the eggs are cooked through, add in the bean sprouts, rice noodles, peanuts, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Finally, toss until combined.
