Vegetarian Pad Thai
We love this Thai dish, not just because of how quick it is to make, but because it's so easy to add loads of vegetables to it, without feeling like you are eating a lot of vegetables. You still have all the comfort from the noodles, but all the colour from the vegetables and plenty of protein from the eggs. Healthy takeaway at its best.

We ate a ton of pad thai when we were in Thailand. Literally a ton, that probably isn't an exaggeration. Whilst we ate in plenty of restaurants during our 3 week tour round this stunning country, we spent most of our eating time at street markets, as that is where the really good authentic food is, not to mention cheap. There was always a stall selling pad thai and that was usually the one with the longest queue, along with the mango and sticky rice stall.
I had never been able to make a pad thai that tasted anything like the the ones we ate at those street markets, so when we got down to the island of Koh Samui for my birthday and Dave surprised me with a Thai cooking course, I was excited to learn how to make a real pad thai. It's so simple and although there are different variations of it, we went with a vegetarian version that gets protein from eggs.
Seeing as today marks the beginning of British Egg Week, we thought it would be a good time to share the pad thai recipe that we learnt to make when we were in Thailand. The aim of British Egg Week is to encourage people to #putaneggonit and use eggs in a way that they wouldn't usually think to, like in a noodle dish. You all know how much I love my eggs and avocado on toast, but there is SO much more that you can do with them.
There are a little super food, as they are packed full of goodness including healthy fat and protein and they are cheap too. Eggs are always quick to cook, which is why you will be seeing lots more egg recipes coming from us, as we try to shorten the time that we spend in the kitchen.
Farang London chef Seb Holmes, has teamed up with British Lion Eggs to deliver six quick and tasty Thai street food inspired recipes, so we were inspired to share our own street food recipe too, to show how versatile eggs are. Seeing as it is British Egg Week, why don't you get create with eggs yourself and try them a way you haven't done before. There are lots of delicious egg recipes over on the British Lion Eggs website.
