This tasty Thai noodle dish is so flavoursome and full of good ingredients. If it’s a regular at your house (especially if you are paying for takeaway!) it’s worth investing in the base ingredients so that you can make it time and time again with minimal outlay. Other ideas to make this dish cheaper include freezing your herbs and chillies, and buying packs of noodles whilst on sale. This dish is easily made vegetarian by omitting the chicken. You can add strips of tofu if you prefer. Scroll down beneath the recipe for the breakdown of costs.
This recipe 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 the magazine, as it’s such a cost effective meal.
