Regional Recipe - Pad Thai for one

Finding a recipe for one can be challenging, but that doesn’t mean solo diners should sacrifice a great meal.  Here is a scaled recipe for that beloved Asian dish, Pad Thai. 

INGREDIENTS

• 4 ounces pad thai noodles
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 1/2 clove garlic, minced
• 1 large egg
• 3 teaspoons soy sauce
• 3 teaspoons fresh lime juice
• 1 tablespoon brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
• 1 small pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
• 1 green onion, sliced
• 1/8 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves only, roughly chopped
• 1/8 cup chopped, unsalted peanuts

PREPARATION

Note: Cooked chicken, shrimp or tofu are optional additions
1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the noodles and cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until tender. Drain the noodles and set aside.
2. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until tender.
3. Whisk the eggs lightly with a fork. Pour them into the skillet and cook just until they solidify, but are still moist, moving the eggs around the skillet slightly as they cook so that they lightly scramble. When the eggs are cooked, remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
4. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, and red pepper flakes. Pour the sauce into the skillet with the scrambled eggs. Add the noodles and toss to coat in the sauce.
5. Sprinkle the green onions, cilantro, and peanuts over the noodles. Toss lightly to combine. Serve warm.
