Put the noodles in a pot of boiling water and cook as per instructions on the back of the packet (usually takes 4-5 minutes). Remove from heat, drain and rinse with cold water in a colander over the sink.
It’s best to prep all the veg first, as this is a fast cooking dish cooked on a high heat in about 5 minutes. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Remove the end off the chilli and finely slice (leave the seeds in only if you like it hot). Finely slice the scallions / spring onions, remove any limp outer leaves and finely chop the green parts. Grate the carrot. Finely chop the mushrooms. Remove the nub at the end of the pak choi and finely chop.
Put 1.5 tablespoons of oil into a non-stick large-bottomed pan (ideally a wok) on a high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the ginger and chilli, and cook for 1 minute, stirring regularly.
Add the mushrooms, scallions and the grated carrot with 1 tsp salt .Cook for further 5 minutes, stirring as it cooks.
In a cup, mix together the dressing ingredients, using a fork (do not worry if it stays a bit lumpy and the coconut milk does not break up completely, it will do once it’s added to the pan).
Add the dressing in to the pan and stir through thoroughly, so that it coats all the veg well. Cook for another 5 minutes.
Next, add the cooked noodles and the chopped pak choi and cook for another few minutes.
Remove from the heat. Roughly chop the fresh coriander or basil and use them as garnish for each serving together with sprinkles of roasted peanuts.
It’s nice served with some pickled ginger and a wedge of lime on each serving.
If dont like mushrooms in this peanut and sweet pad thai, just substitute with your favourite fast cooking veg such as peppers, courgettes or fine beans. Alternative to coconut milk are to make a cashew cream or to replace with low fat coconut milk or simply veg stock for a lower fat version.

This is not the recipe for the peanut and ginger pad thai!
Where is the recipe for Ginger and Peanut Pad Thai? I watched a video but can’t find it or the recipe. I get redirected to Stuffed Chard and Tomato Bake.
