What You'll Need
  • 1 cup WATCHAREE’S pad Thai Sauce
  • 8 oz. (medium width) dried flat rice noodles or Banh pho noodles (about 1/2 of a 1 lb. bag)
  • 4 tablespoons Oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup fried soybean curd or firm tofu, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons preserved sweet radish
  • 1 cup chives, sliced to 1 inch long
  • 3 cups bean sprouts, pea shoots or sunflower shoots, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup ground unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1 lime, cut to wedges
  • 1 tablespoon ground hot chili (optional)
  1. 1. Soak noodles in cold water until soft for 20- 30 minutes, drain and set aside. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat until hot.
  2. 2. Add noodles and stir until noodles are soft. Add water a little at a time to further cook the noodles to around 70 percent. Do not overcook the noodles at this stage. With spatula, move noodles to the side of the wok and add eggs.
  3. 3. Break egg yolks and cook eggs until almost done. Stir the noodles to cover the eggs, add WATCHAREE’s Pad Thai Sauce, tofu, chives, radishes, and 2 cups of beansprouts, pea shoots or sunflower shoots. Mix well and turn off the heat.
  4. 4. Arrange noodles on a serving dish. Serve with fresh beansprouts, pea shoots or sunflower shoots, ground peanuts, and lime wedges. Add hot chilies if you like spicy pad Thai!

Hiya. I'm a vegetarian but I believe that the term Vegan is not typically used when there are eggs present in a dish. Maybe I'm wrong?
