Pad Thai is a classic take-out favorite and is quite easily made at home. You’ll need to do a bit of chopping and mixing, but once you prep all the ingredients, it only takes 15 minutes to cook on the stove.
My very favorite recipe for Pad Thai comes from Cook’s Illustrated. I adapted their recipe a bit to make it grain-free. I used palm shortening in this recipe because it has a neutral flavor, is a healthy fat and can withstand high heats. I buy palm shortening from Tropical Traditions because they purchase from a sustainable farm. So next time, skip the take-out and whip up a batch of homemade Pad Thai. The flavors are vibrant and it’s a much healthier option!
