Looking for a quick and easy meal that is fresh and will feed the family? It has been tested by hundreds of families and has made its way onto the weekly rotation of many… is there any better compliment?
This Quick Thermomix Pad Thai was originally featured in The 4 Blades Podcast Episode 76: Thermomix Thai Recipes, along with some fabulous Thai curries from Nikalene of Skinnymixers.
Bec wanted to call it ‘Quick Un-Authentic Thermomix Pad Thai’. Joe said no.
What makes it un-authentic? Well, it doesn’t have sugar, as pad thai usually does. Also, the vegetables are chopped up in the Thermomix, rather than left in matchstick form. The great news is that this Thermomix Pad Thai has good-for-you ingredients, it really goes a long way (feeding a crowd) and it doesn’t cost the earth. In fact, we chose to feature it in The Budget Issue of our digital magazine, as it’s such a cost effective meal.
For a bit of fun, check out the video below. It’s Bec and Joe showing how quick and easy it is to make this Thermomix Pad Thai on Day 1 of 30mix. 30mix was the 12 day challenge we run – a new recipe and video every day, each taking less than 30 minutes to complete. It was great fun. Be sure that you are on our mailing list to hear about our next one!
