Pad Thai with Kale

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN

This pad Thai is especially delicious with young, tender kale because the leaves get stir-fried very quickly.

  1. 1/2 pound pad Thai rice noodles (banh pho)
  2. 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges, for serving
  5. 2 tablespoons sugar
  6. 1 tablespoon Sriracha or chile-garlic sauce
  7. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  8. 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
  9. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  10. 2 cups julienned carrots (from about 3/4 pound carrots)
  11. One 12-ounce bunch of kale, thick stems discarded and leaves thinly sliced
  12. 4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  13. 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  14. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  15. 1/4 cup ground roasted peanuts
  1. Put the noodles in a large bowl and cover with very hot water. Let soak until just pliable, about 15 minutes (or according to package directions). Drain the noodles in a colander, shaking off excess water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the fish sauce with the oyster sauce, lime juice, sugar, and Sriracha.
  3. In a large nonstick wok or skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the shallots, garlic and carrots and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the kale and stir-fry until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the noodles and scallions and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Scrape the noodles to one side of the pan and add the eggs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, about 1 minute. Toss everything together. Add the sauce and the 1/4 cup cilantro and stir-fry until the noodles are evenly coated and the sauce has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pad Thai to a platter. Garnish with the peanuts and more cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
