Create homemade Pad Thai in the comfort of your own home in 15 minutes. Add the sweet licorice flavor of McCormick Gourmet™ Thai Basil and Thai Kitchen Premium® Fish Sauce to highlight the dish’s umami appeal. Serve with your choice of chicken, shrimp or tofu for a creamy, restaurant-worthy meal.
Cook noodles as directed on package.
Heat oil in wok or large skillet on medium-high heat. Add egg, cook and stir 30 seconds (egg will not be fully cooked). Add bell pepper and carrots; cook and stir until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes.
Stir in cooked noodles, bean sprouts, water, tamarind concentrate, fish sauce, Thai basil and garlic powder. Cook and stir until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 1 minute. Serve with peanuts, green onions and lime wedges.
Substitution Tip: Can’t find tamarind concentrate? No problem! Just omit the tamarind concentrate and fish sauce in the recipe, then increase water to 1/3 cup and add 2 tablespoons each peanut butter and soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon lime juice when stirring in the cooked noodles. All other ingredients will stay the same as indicated in the original recipe.
