‘I don’t know man.. I just started eating noodles & I was like ‘wow… my problems, where did they just go?’

Hi people & happy Monday indeed. Hope you all had a fab weekend! Me & my boyfriend celebrated our first year together (awww) & had a staycay in Fujairah. We stayed at Le Royal Meridien Al Aqah Resort which I totally recommend & went diving – mind blowing!

Anyway, we loveeee Thai food & a few weeks ago I made this easy vegan pad Thai recipe from scratch with scrambled tofu (which you don’t need to add but it’s so good). The recipe below serves one, just double for 2 & so on.. You can use any veggies you want/have left over – even frozen veg will work.

Enjoy! Jess x
