Although vegetables are not strictly part of traditional Pad Thai. Drain well in a colander and cover with a dampened paper towel. Lightly toast the peanuts in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat until golden, then bash in a pestle and mortar until fine, and tip into a bowl. The Vegetarian Pad Thai is a simple and quick dish to make but is one of those dishes that has to be made fresh. The vegetables, sauces and noodles all stir fried on high heat gives the noodles the perfect texture and authenticity.
