It's no secret. I love pad thai. I like my pad thai with a little bit of chili paste on the side, which I delicately dip the tines of my fork into before each and every bite. Love. It. So I attempted to recreate the taste of it here. As you may or may not know, the best part of pad thai is the crunchy peanuts that you can mix into it, and the fresh lime you can squeeze into it. So this is what we get in our version. Kinda! And close enough to please my taste buds.
So with this one, you warm your entree, mix in all the spices, yes, including PB2 (TRUST ME), and then you squeeze lime juice onto it. You have to, HAVE TO, use the lime juice. It makes it zing.
And it will remind us of what fresh tastes like. It's amazing what a little squeeze of liquid from a fruit can do to an entire meal. Just awesome.
