Vegan MoFo 9- The Happy Herbivore- Cheater Pad Thai


Today's recipe come from The Happy Herbivore (pg 117). His and hers cheater pad thai. I was testing out new noodles with this recipe but it will work with all of them. I switched up the quantities, add more peanut butter, used fresh garlic instead of ground, added more veggies (capsicum, carrot, kale) used fresh chili instead of chili sauce, omitted spring onions on mine etc. The integrity of the dish remains but my version with stacks of veggies and fresh ginger and chili is wonderfully yummy. Just try it and see!
