UH YES PLEASE! Pad Thai is my absolute favourite thing to order when I'm out at a thai place! It's so delicious and flavoursome. Although, sometimes they are just too sweet because they've been loaded with sugars. This recipe has a low sugar option, and is just as delicious! So, if you're like me and love savoury things....you'll love this!

Pad Thai:
Serves: 4-6 

250g dried Pad Thai noodles, cooked according to packet
1 small red capsicum, sliced into thin strips
1 medium carrot, sliced into thin strips
1 small broccoli head, cut into small florets
6 baby corn kernels, cut lengthways
5 Snow peas, sliced into strips
2 garlic cloves, sliced into silvers
1/2 a small red onion, sliced into thin strips
1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
1/2 cup coriander leaves (or to your liking)
2 eggs
1/4 cup crushed nuts (for garnish)
1/2 lime (for garnish) 
1 tbsp. sesame oil

2 tbsp. Fish sauce
1 Tbsp. oyster sauce (optional)
2 tbsp, Soy sauce
2 tbsp. vegetable stock
1/2 lime, juiced


1. Cook noodles according to packet instructions. (Most use boiling water to soften, but just check incase!)
2. Add sesame oil to a wok. Bring to a high heat. Ensure the wok is super hot before using!
3. Add garlic, chilli and cook for 1 minute.
4. Add all vegetables in at the same time. Keep stirring, to ensure they're evenly cooked. Cook for 7-8 minutes.
5. Crack the two eggs into the wok and stir to combine.
6. Add the coriander here (save some for garnishing!) and then add the cooked noodles. You may need to cut the noodles before hand, to ensure you're able to stir them in the wok, they do become sticky!
7. Add Fish sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, vegetable stock and lime juice into a seperate bowl and mix to combine.
8. Pour mixture over the noodles and stir through.
9. Take off heat and transfer to serving bowls.
10. Sprinkle with crushed nuts, coriander  and a wedge of lime.

  • Hi Leah, love your work! I was just wondering if you added one chicken breast to this recipe how would you adjust the dressing? Thanks!

  • Hi Leah,
