Pad Thai is a Thai classic.
It’s so popular that you can find it at any Thai restaurant.
You can even buy a bottle at a local grocery store.
Here’s how to make Pad Thai at home.
Ingredients 1 can coconut milk 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/3 cup plain yogurt 1 cup of coconut milk (or more if you prefer) 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/16 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 garlic cloves, minced 3 green onions, sliced 1 red bell pepper, diced 1 small green bell pepper (about 2 1/5 inches long), sliced 1 yellow bell pepper about 3/4 inch long, sliced (optional) 1 cup Thai basil 1/6 cup lime juice 1 tablespoon freshly grated coconut 1/12 cup grated Parmesan cheese, grated 1/32 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (optional for dipping) Directions In a medium saucepan, combine the coconut milk, yogurt, lemon juice, yogurt and salt.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic and green onions.
Pour the coconut mixture over the bottom of the saucepan and stir to combine.
Cover the pan and simmer over medium heat until the sauce is thickened and thickened enough to coat a spoon, about 10 minutes.
Let the sauce cool slightly.
In the meantime, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine all of the remaining ingredients.
Bring the mixture to a low boil, reduce the temperature to medium-high and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick enough to form a paste.
Notes For best results, heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Once the oil is hot, stir in the garlic, green onions and bell peppers, stirring to coat all of them in oil.
Cook for another 5 minutes, until they start to brown.
Once browned, stir the coconut sauce into the oil mixture.
Season with salt and pepper.
