Super-fast Pad Thai. Super Good Plastic Animals.

I’m not joking with you. This video is a scream.

Pad Thai is one of my husband’s favorite foods. He can never resist ordering it if he sees it on a menu. Since it is so easy to make, I try all sorts of different variations at home.

This recipe is one of the best I have tried for Pad Thai. Super fast it is. I liked the addition of peas.

Super-fast Pad Thai


200g rice noodles
140g frozen peas
200g frozen prawns
2 Tbs sunflower or vegetable oil
100g beansprouts
small bunch green onions, sliced
2 beaten eggs
3 Tbs roasted peanuts
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs sweet chilli sauce
small bunch cilantro, leaves only


1. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the noodles and cook for 3 minutes, adding the peas and prawns for the final minute. Drain, and set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the noodles, prawns, peas, beansprouts and spring onions, tossing to coat in the oil for a few minutes. Push everything to one side of the pan and pour in the egg. Stir until cooked, then mix everything well.

3. Toss through the peanuts, soy and sweet chilli sauce so everything is combined. Scatter with the cilantro and serve.
