Pad Thai?

These days, Brit and I are specializing in quick, easy meals. When you don’t get home from practice until 6:30 or later each night and you’ve got midterms and assignments (all due at the same time) up to your necks, meals have to be something that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less.

We’ve posted a few different recipes that are super fast to whip up:

Crispy Fish Cakes
Lemon Dijon Chicken over Carrot-Broccoli Grain Salad
Protein Power Bowl
Pulled Chicken Tacos
Split-Pea Lentil and Date Patties
Szechuan Chickpea Burgers
Spicy Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadilla

However, probably one of our fastest, favourite things to do for dinner is make pasta. A nice big bowl of pasta filled with sauteed veggies and sprinkled with cheese. Way back in September, we posted a recipe for pasta sauce and in that post we talked about making one of these said pasta bowls. Well, we did that again, accept this time, we took a different spin on it!

This time, instead of marinara sauce, we took a Thailand approach and made a dish reminiscent of Pad-thai. Sounds amazing, right?

Right.

And the best part about this meal, is the amount of time it takes you to sautee the veggies and make up the sauce is the same amount of time it takes you to cook the noodles. So it’s really, really fast!

In our bowl went crispy tofu, red, orange and yellow peppers, onion, mushrooms, and frozen veggies, but you can put anything you want in it, really! Brit and I both agreed that chicken or salmon would be delicious, and I’m sure if you are a shrimp lover (neither of us are!) than that would be delightful, too. 🙂

Thai-Peanut Pasta Sauce! Yum. 🙂

  1. I love the looks of this Pad Thai! I always forget how good it is, and definitely need to make it more often:)

    • Agreed! We always order pad thai when we go out for Thai food, but for some reason we very rarely make it at home! Now that we’ve come up with our own recipe, this will have to change… 🙂
