Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Slice the whole butternut squash in half, then scoop out and discard the seeds

Tip: For easier cutting, use a bread knife (oiling the knife helps too!)

2 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Slice each squash half into 1cm wedges and add them to a bowl with the Thai red curry paste, a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil and mix well

Put the marinated squash wedges onto a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and put the tray in the oven for 20-22 min or until cooked through but with a slight bite

Remove from the oven and set aside

3 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Place the rice noodles into a bowl and cover with boiled water

Set aside for 15 min to soften

Once softened, drain the rice noodles and keep to one side

4 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Slice the mangetout in half diagonally

Slice the spring onion[s] and red chilli[es] finely

5 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-low heat

Add the chopped garlic and half of the sliced red chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 3-4 min until starting to caramelise

Once caramelised, add the mangetout and cook for 3-4 min or until starting to soften

6 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Meanwhile, combine the soy sauce, Sriracha, tamarind paste, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] sugar and the juice of 1/2 [1] lime – this is your pad Thai sauce

Add the drained rice noodles and the pad Thai sauce to the pan, stirring until everything is evenly coated in the sauce

7 Spicy Squash Pad Thai With Crispy Onions

Remove the squash wedges from the baking tray and add to the pan, stir to combine for 1 min then turn off the heat and cover - this is your spicy squash pad Thai

Meanwhile, crush the peanuts in the bag with a rolling pin

Slice the remaining lime into wedges
