Recipe Ingredients for Pad Thai

4 oz rice vermicelli
1 c water
1 oz dried mushrooms
2 t vegetable oil
8 scallions
1 garlic clove
1 t chili paste
1/4 c lime juice
2 T soy sauce
1 T sugar
3 egg whites
1 c bean sprouts
1/4 c dry roasted peanuts

Recipe Directions for Pad Thai

  1. Cook the vermicelli in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 1-2 mins. With a strainer or tongs, transfer the noodles to a large bowl of cold water to cool, then drain.

  2. Meanwhile, bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; add the mushrooms, cover and remove from heat. Let stand 20 mins. to soften. Drain the mushrooms, discarding the liquid and squeezing out the excess water. Thinly slice the mushrooms and set aside.

  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok. Swirl in the oil, then add the scallions and the garlic. Saute until fragrant, about 10 secs. Add the chile paste; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 10 secs. Add the lime juice, soy sauce, and sugar; cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 30 secs.

  4. Add the mushrooms; cook until they have absorbed some of the sauce, about 1 min. Stir in the egg whites; cook, stirring gently, until they begin to set, about 30 secs. Add the vermicelli and bean sprouts; cook, tossing gently, until mixed and heated through, 2-3 mins. Serve, sprinkled with the peanuts and (if using) the cilantro.
