Pad Thai is one of the most well-known Thai dishes in Australia and around the world even scoring the title of one of the most ordered takeaway dishes back in 2014. It’s tasty, not too spicy yet still packed with flavour it is easy to see why it has become so popular.
Tradionally the dressing/sauce is made with a flavour combination of salty, sweet and sour, not unlike majority of Thai dishes yet this dressing I have served it with has the addition of peanut butter adding that creamy texture and flavour that takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness. Pad Thai is typically made with flat rice noodles and a meat protein such as chicken, beef or prawns. I have opted to make it vegetarian and used gluten-free buckwheat noodles instead, only because I didn’t have any flat rice noodles in the house (really didn’t make any difference at all).

Mountain bread wraps are my favourite healthy alternative to bread and other doughy wraps also the big winner for me is that they are preservative free not like most other brand wraps on the market. They come in all sort of varieties and are easily found in the wrap section in your local supermarket. But did you know you can make other things besides eating them as wraps?
I have used Mountain Bread sheets to make all sorts of things from pizzas to enchiladas and this recipe of using them as casing for eggy cups or frittatas if you like. It gives them the outer crunch without all the butter and calories of pastry. You can use whatever ingredients you like in the egg mix, I used chopped ham, grated cheese, corn and tomato to make them kid friendly for my kid’s school lunches. You can add other cooked veggies like broccoli, pumpkin or spinach to add extra veggie goodness. They are super easy to make even the kids can help you make them.
Some of us are great at sticking to and leading a healthy lifestyle no matter what time of year it is, others aren’t so much and fall off the bandwagon from time to time does this sound familiar? Don’t worry never too late to get re-inspired again. Lucky for you I have a tasty quinoa meal that is full of superfood goodness and will help you get back into the swing of things.
