Recipe Notes

Meal Prep & Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Dice vegetables and mix the sauce up to 1-2 days ahdead of time.

  • To Store: Much like other rice noodle dishes, pad Thai is best when it is served immediately after making. You can store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days. But oftentimes the rice noodles will break down while reheating.

  • To Freeze: I don't recommend freezing at the texture of the noodles will break down.

  • To Reheat: Add noodles and a bit of water to a skillet and warm over medium-low heat. Stir as little as possible. Or, microwave leftovers.
