Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s national dishes. It is made with a combination of rice noodles, scrambled eggs, green onion, soy sauce, mung bean sprouts, cilantro, and garlic. Pictured in the slideshow below are some of the steps and ingredients used to make Good Measure Meals vegetarian version of this recipe. The final plating of the meal includes the Pad Thai noodles topped with baby corn ears, cubes of roasted tofu and an Asian peanut sauce. We also serve it with a side of stir fried Basil Sugar Snap Peas.
First our chef, Kim, weights and measures out all of the ingredients for the recipe. This is an important step because I have carefully balanced the nutrition content for all of the recipes to ensure that they fit within our nutritional targets. Then production begins. Check out the slideshow to get an idea of how this recipe is prepared.
The non-vegetarian version is a new recipe for the spring summer menu. It is made in a similar way as the vegetarian version, but topped with shrimp instead of tofu.
This recipe is loaded with healthy ingredients that pack A LOT of flavor when they are all combined. Rice noodles have zero grams of fat and 2 grams of fiber/2oz serving. Scrambled eggs add protein to the dish and are also a good source of Choline, a vitamin that keeps your cell membranes working properly, allows your nerves to communicate with your muscles and reduces chronic inflammation. Onions and garlic are members of the Allium family, and both are rich in powerful sulfur-containing compounds that are responsible for their pungent odors and for many of their health-promoting effects. In addition, onions are very rich in chromium, a trace mineral that helps cells respond to insulin, plus vitamin C, and numerous flavonoids, most notably, quercitin.
