Pad Thai is one of the most famous and best-loved Thai dishes. The decisive factor in a good Pad Thai is the balance of the individual ingredients: from the saltiness of the fish sauce, to the heat of the chilli, the acidity of the limes, the sweetness of the coconut palm sugar, and the crunchiness of the roasted peanuts. Together with the typically generous portion of noodles, the sauce quickly becomes incredibly calorific. To make a somewhat lighter version, I took inspiration from the generous plate of vegetables on the previous page, and that's how rice noodles became carrot noodles. Carrots lend the dish a natural sweetness and go extremely well with the sauce. Calling all fans of Pad Thai: you can enjoy this carrot Pad Thai as often as you like, without a guilty conscience! You simply have to try it!

How it's done


Cut the carrot into long, thin noodles using a peeler (or into long strips using a Julienne peeler). Prepare three quarters of the spring onions, bean sprouts, coriander and Thai basil; put the rest to one side for the topping.


Mix all the ingredients well.

Tofu and nuts

Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and briefly fry the garlic and onion, then add the tofu and fry until golden-brown. Add 4 tbsp of sauce and continue to fry for 5 mins. Add the carrots and the rest of the sauce, mix well and fry until the carrots are cooked but still have some crunch. Now add half of the peanuts, vegetables and herbs (bean sprouts, spring onions, coriander, Thai basil) and fry for 1 min. until the bean sprouts and spring onions are a little softer.

Serving and topping

Serve the Pad Thai onto the plates, drizzle over some lime juice and scatter over the bean sprouts, spring onions, herbs and nuts reserved for the topping. Place the lime slices or segments on the side. For more spiciness (an absolute must for me!) Drizzle over the Sriracha sauce or scatter over some chilli flakes.

Good to know
Tip: Use half a carrot or half a courgette instead of a whole carrot. Use a spiral slicer to cut the courgette, too, but only add it with the other vegetables right at the end and just fry it briefly until the herbs and bean sprouts are a little softer (otherwise it becomes too watery and loses its texture completely).
Tip: Use Tamari or soy sauce instead of fish sauce for a vegan version.
