Pad Thai is a popular stir-fried dish that combines springy, absorbent rice noodles, flavorful sauce, eggs and vegetables—plus a dash of citrus. In this recipe, we’re preparing a quick summer pad Thai with seasonal tinkerbell peppers, whose vibrant colors brighten up each bowl. Our garnishes of chopped peanuts and fragrant Thai basil perfectly complement the delicious peanut-hoisin sauce.
