Vegan Pad Thai

I never realised how easy it was to make a simple pad thai dish! I used brown rice noodles with the intention of making the dish more wholegrain and healthier. I use Meridian peanut butter when I can find it, as it contains no palm oil. If you’re unsure of why I’d take issue with a commonplace ingredient like palm oil, see here. We can all take action simply by choosing to buy product X over product Y and it makes a difference.
