Pad Thai is certainly one of the most popular Thai dishes in the US. It has a sweet, sour, spicy combination that is hard to beat. Making it at home can be complicated with finding the traditional ingredients of Nahm Prik Pow (hot sauce), palm sugar, tamarind sauce, and fish sauce. The noodles used for Pad Thai are rice noodles that, while delicious, don’t have much nutritional value. This dish is inspired by the flavors of Pad Thai but uses ingredients that you are more likely to find at your local grocery store. The rice noodles have been replaced by hearts of palm noodles that are growing in popularity. They are widely available online and in many grocery stores. Ask if you cannot find them as they can tuck them away in hard-to-find places in the grocery store. We have added more vegetables than you would normally find in Pad Thai to further improve the nutritional value. If you don’t have fish sauce, you can just use all soy sauce. Sambal is an Asian hot sauce that is widely available in grocery stores, you could substitute Sriracha if you like. To make this dish vegetarian, omit the fish sauce. To make this dish vegan, omit the fish sauce and egg.
