It’s easy to vary this vegetable pad Thai: Swap in snow peas or sugar snaps for the sweet peas; add some julienned bell pepper in place of the carrots.

  1. 1/2 pound dried pad Thai rice noodles (banh pho)
  2. 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  4. 2 tablespoons sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon Sriracha or chile-garlic sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  7. 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
  8. 4 ounces mushrooms, such as shiitake and cremini, stems removed and halved
  9. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  10. 2 cups julienned carrots (from about 3/4 pound carrots)
  11. 4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces, plus thinly sliced scallions, for garnish
  12. 1/3 cup frozen sweet peas
  13. 2 large eggs, beaten
  14. 1 cup bean sprouts
  15. 1/4 cup ground roasted peanuts
  16. 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges, for serving
  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, sugar and Sriracha.
  3. In a large nonstick wok or skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the shallots, and mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and carrots and stir-fry until soft, 2 minutes. Add the noodles, the 4 scallions and the peas 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 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 bean sprouts, peanuts and thinly sliced scallions and serve with the lime wedges.
