Pad Thai is one of the great classic Asian noodle dishes of all time. Like many Asian foods, it has quite a lengthy list of ingredients, but oh, it is so worth it! Standard rice noodles are tossed in a wok with a fresh garlic, diced turnip, mushrooms, tofu, and a heavenly blend of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Lavender Balsamic Vinegar, rice wine, paprika, tamarind juice, and lime.
The wonderful mixture of tangy/sweet sauce and comforting noodles is then topped with ground toasted peanuts, bean sprouts, and drizzled with Persian Lime Olive Oil. Are you hungry yet? Can you just smell the Pad Thai tossing up hot and sizzling in your wok? This is one dish that will have your family lining up for more!
