This is a great Pad Thai recipe- very easy and very very tasty
1/4 c white sugar
1/4 distilled white vinegar
2 Tbl soy sauce
1 Tbl tamarind pulp (found at whole foods)
1 box Pad Thai noodles (also found at whole foods, wheat and gluten free is what I use)
1/4 c vegetable oil
3/4 tsp minced garlic
2-1/4 tsp white sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 c ground peanuts
3/4 tsp wasabi powder
1/4 c chopped chives
1-1/2 tsp paprika
1 c fresh bean sprouts
1/2 lime cut into wedges
1/2 c chopped cilantro and mint (mixed together)
In medium saucepan over medium heat, blend first 4 ingredients
Cook noodles according to package (cooks like pasta but much faster)
In large skillet or wok cook over medium heat. Warm oil, add garlic and eggs. Scramble the eggs. Add noodles and stir until cooked. Stir in sauce, 1-1/4 tsp sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, stir in peanuts and wasabi powder.
Remove from heat and garnish with bean sprouts, lime and paprika.
If you feel adventurous, add a little oriental chili paste to the sauce for some heat.
