Easy Vegetable Pad Thai [recipe]

easy pad thai recipe

I’m a sucker for take-out, especially Chinese and Thai.  It’s easy, cheap and DELICIOUS.  One of my favorite dishes is Vegetable Pad Thai…it has such a unique flavor and it’s (somewhat) healthy too!  If you saw my 10 Simple Weeknight Meals post you probably know that I’ve made an attempt to start cooking more lately, and I’m proud to report that I’ve been doing pretty good!  I ended up experimenting with a simple Pad Thai recipe last week and I was super excited with the results!
