Easy and Vegetarian Sunday Pad Thaï

in Foodies Bee Hive15 days ago

Hi everyone !

Today we're on a bit of a pace, we took our time in the morning and I think we're only going to eat once during the day, so we might as well enjoy it :) I'll say it right off the bat, this is my first time cooking Pad Thai so obviously I'm still learning ! So, if you're an expert, I'm counting on your advice and indulgence, rather than doing like someone who, in front of my pizza recipe, said : "No, that's not pizza. ^^

Instead, think of it as an inspired recipe that we made as a trial run, to enjoy this afternoon and to perfect later on. Of course, I tried many variations of this dish, with vegetables, shrimps or meat. Compared to the original recipe, we were missing some ingredients, no oyster sauce, no crushed peanuts... But I think we did fairly well !

Here is a first picture of what I was thinking of putting in the base... Cauliflower, pomegranate, some onions, ginger, lemon at the end and of course Thai rice noodles... After that, I added some celery sticks, soja bean sprouts and a few other things.

First of all, soak your rice noodles in a large volume of cold or lukewarm water for about 30 to 45 minutes. This gives us time to do the rest.

I rinse the cauliflower, cut it into pieces and steam it. My objective ? That it is still crunchy, but cooked and tender at the same time...

Let's move on to the pomegranate. A few years ago, I found this technique to prepare all the seeds without getting them all over me ! All you need is a knife and a large bowl of cold water. But I'll let you watch the rest in pictures...

In fact, it's the little white bits that float, you just have to separate them well and end up catching what's on the surface. Ingenious, isn't it ?

Meanwhile, the noodles are slowly softening...

I prepare my two celery stalks and separate the leaves to cook them elsewhere. I add the stalks to the steam for about ten minutes with the cauliflower.

Rinsing of the soja beansprouts which I had not thought of !

I peel and cut my ginger piece very small.

The same goes for sliced onions...

I prepare my pan with a mixture of olive oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce, mustard seeds and curry leaves.

DSC_0303.JPG

Well, now everything is ready and I'm going to start cooking... I check again if everything is good and in the meantime, I take out my steamed vegetables.

DSC_0326.JPG

I start with the onions and coarsely chopped celery leaves over medium heat. I wring out the noodles, which is now quite fluid and supple even though it is still quite hard.

DSC_0328.JPG

DSC_0330.JPG

When my basic mixture is browned enough, I add the noodles and then I think my pan is pretty small. To tell you the truth, we have a great wok at home, but it doesn't work on the electric hobs. It's a bit of a bummer indeed and I can't wait to have an outdoor gas cooking spot !

DSC_0336.JPG

DSC_0339.JPG

The mixture goes well and we add water and diluted miso several times, as well as a little more soy... Towards the end, I add some of the beansprouts and put a lid on it for a few minutes.

DSC_0352.JPG

We finish by setting up the plate, pasta, cauliflower and celery pure and only detailed, pomegranate seeds and a little salt and pepper. This is the moment when my girlfriend asks me to stop taking pictures and then, so that the dish doesn't get too cold, we sit down to eat !

As soon as the plate was finished, I said to myself that next time I would use two pans, one for the pasta and the second for a mixture of sautéed vegetables and meat. To be continued ;-)

I hope you enjoyed following this recipe with us and as announced in the introduction, if you are an expert of this recipe, don't hesitate to share your tips and precious advice with us !

Thank you for reading, I hope you had a great weekend. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones and see you soon,

Salut à tous !

Aujourd'hui, nous sommes à un petit rythme, nous avons pris notre temps le matin et je pense que nous allons manger une seule fois dans la journée, alors autant en profiter :) Je l'annonce d'emblée, c'est la première fois que je prépare des Pad Thaï alors forcément, je suis encore en apprentissage ! Du coup, si vous êtes un expert, je compte sur vos conseils et votre indulgence, plutôt que de faire comme une personne qui devant ma recette de pizza, avait déclaré : "Non, ça, ce n'est pas de la pizza." ^^

Prenez plutôt cela comme une recette inspirée et que nous avons faites comme un essai, afin de nous régaler cet après-midi et de nous perfectionner par la suite. Bien-sûr, j'ai goûté un grand nombre de variantes de ce plat, avec des légumes, des crevettes ou bien de la viande. Par rapport, la recette originale, il nous manquait quelques ingrédients, pas de sauce d'huîtres, pas de cacahouètes concassées...

Mais je pense que nous nous en sommes tout de même assez bien sortis !

DSC_0222.JPG

Voilà une première image de ce que je pensais mettre à la base... Du chou-fleur, de la grenade, quelques oignons, du gingembre, du citron à la fin et bien-sûr des pâtes de riz thaïlandaises... Après cela, s'est rajouté du céleri branche, des pousses de soja et quelques autres choses.

DSC_0223.JPG

DSC_0230.JPG

Avant tout, faites tremper vos pâtes dans un grand volume d'eau froide ou tiède durant environ 30 à 45 minutes. Ça nous laisse le temps de faire le reste.

DSC_0226.JPG

DSC_0270.JPG

Je rince le chou-fleur, le détaille en morceaux et je le lance à la vapeur. Mon objectif ? Que celui-ci soit encore croquant bien que cuit et tendre à la fois...

DSC_0233.JPG

Passons à la grenade. Il y a quelques années, j'ai trouvé cette technique pour préparer l'ensemble des grains sans me tâcher ni en mettre partout ! Pour cela, il vous faut juste un couteau et un grand saladier rempli d'eau froide. Mais je vous laisse regarder la suite en images...

DSC_0238.JPG

DSC_0255.JPG

DSC_0263.JPG

DSC_0266.JPG

En fait, ce sont les petit morceaux blancs qui flottent, il suffit de tout bien séparer et de finir par attraper ce qui est à la surface. Ingénieux non ?

DSC_0271.JPG

Pendant ce temps-là, les pâtes ramollissent doucement...

DSC_0274.JPG

DSC_0289.JPG

Je prépare mes deux branches de céleri et sépare les feuilles pour les faire cuire ailleurs. J'ajoute les branches à la vapeur pour une dizaine de minutes avec le chou-fleur.

DSC_0278.JPG

Rinçage des pousses de soja auxquelles je n'avais pas pensé !

DSC_0285.JPG

DSC_0300.JPG

Je pèle et coupe mon morceau de gingembre en tout petit.

DSC_0287.JPG

Pareil avec les oignons en lamelles...

DSC_0296.JPG

DSC_0291.JPG

DSC_0301.JPG

Je prépare ma poêle avec un mélange d'huile d'olive, de sésame, de sauce soja, de graines de moutarde et de curry leaves.

DSC_0303.JPG

Bon, là tout est prêt et je vais me lancer dans la cuisson... Je re-vérifie que tout soit bon et entre temps, j'ai sorti mes légumes vapeurs.

DSC_0326.JPG

Je commence avec les oignons avec les feuilles de céleri grossièrement hachées à feu moyen. J'essore les pâtes qui sont maintenant bien fluides et souples même si elles sont encore bien dures.

DSC_0328.JPG

DSC_0330.JPG

Lorsque mon mélange de base est assez rissolé, j'ajoute les pâtes et là je me dis que ma poêle est bien petite. Pour tout vous dire, nous avons un super wok à la maison, mais celui-ci ne fonctionne pas sur les plaques électriques de cuisson. C'est un peu con en effet et j'ai bien hâte d'avoir un point de cuisson au gaz en extérieur !

DSC_0336.JPG

DSC_0339.JPG

Le mélange se passe bien et nous ajoutons plusieurs fois de l'eau et du miso dilué ainsi qu'un peu plus de soja... Vers la fin, je rajoute une partie des pousses de soja et je mets un couvercle pour quelques minutes.

DSC_0352.JPG

On termine par dresser l'assiette, des pâtes, du chou-fleur et du céleri purs et seulement détaillés, des graines de grenades ainsi qu'un peu de sel et de poivre. C'est le moment où ma copine me demande d'arrêter de prendre des photos et puis même, afin que le plat ne refroidisse pas trop, nous nous mettons à table !

À peine l'assiette terminée, je me dis que la prochaine fois, j'utiliserai deux poêles, une pour les pâtes et la seconde pour un mélanges de légumes et viande sautés. À suivre ;-)

J'espère que vous aurez apprécié suivre cette recette à nos côtés et comme annoncé en introduction, si vous êtes un expert de cette recette, n'hésitez pas à nous faire partager vos astuces et précieux conseils !

Merci pour votre lecture, j'espère que vous avez passés un très agréable weekend. Prenez bien soin de vous, de vos proches et à très bientôt,

This is simply irresistible, I think nobody would resist it. Good morning from the Philippines!

Hey @afterglow ! Thanks you 😊 it was indeed a true delight !

Hello from Paris ✌️ I hope you're doing well

I am doing good, have a nice day ahead.

Thanks you ✌️

You're welcome (^_^)

Hahah can we cook ANYTHING half way good and NOT take photos? Love the addition of pomegranate! I haven't had noodles in weeks as I didn't take tamari camping with me.....

Haha ! Indeed :)

And I’m taking even more pictures now lol ! This is really pleasant to have a proper tool for that though my phone did the job during a long time.

Maybe one of my favorite fruit, it needs preparation, but it’s always rewarding... when it’s a good one haha !

Mmh, so I can feel you’ll eat some very soon 😉

I have noodles and tempeh on the bench right now. Jamie's upset as he hates tempeh haha. So he can have it without. I've also got fresh thai basil from the garden. Thanks for the inspiration!

Nice, I was really feeling it :D Enjoy the combination !

Here it’s super early in the morning, we’re in a too much heated train to visit a house, the first of this new year. Maybe will it be THE one ? We’ll see..

Bon appétit à vous ✌🏼

Just wow! Looks delicious and Healthy diet... Thanks for coming up with this quality recipe.

You're welcome :) Glad you enjoyed this one !

Have a nice week ahead dear 😘

Hi, amazing cook. I am not familiar with Thai cuisine. But it looks very delicious and appetizing greetings

Thanks you for your appreciated support ✌️ !

I never made lad Thai but you give me a good idea, I'm also on diet and this dish it's perfect full of vegetables!❤️

It's really simple to do and perfect as well for a diet and still delicious :)

Was the first time I prepared rice noodles and that method worked just fine ! Just soak them for 40 minutes and cook them in the pan or wok with a little water and soy sauce.. No gluten, not some much fat and indeed full of vegetables and good nutriments !

Pomegranate - I like it so much but I have never tried it with pasta. Looks healthy and very interesting, if you would live somewhere nearby, I would come (even without an invitation hahaha) to try it out :))

Btw, beautiful photos too 🙌

Generally, it's more in my Lebanese tabbouleh that I add pomegranate, but as it was a kind of freestyle recipe, I was like, okay, why not ? Was great indeed and I can't wait to try an other version of those rice noodles :)

You have a perpetual invitation if you come in Paris and be assured that I will not hesitate as well if I come in Spain haha ! Thanks you, I hope your weekend went nicely ✌️😘
