Living in Thailand for 6 years has taught me how to cook and learn what flavours go together in Thai cuisine. One of my favourite dishes is Phad Thai, a rich sweet and sour noodle dish which is healthy and yummy. I have created a low FODMAP version which tastes just as good. Enjoy!

- In a bowl of warm to hot water place the noodles and let them soak for 30-40 minuets.
- Roast or grill the peanuts for 4-5 minuets, until browned on top.
- In a hot pan add the oil, sugar, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Stir until all is melted together and creates a syrup.
- Chop the vegetables but make sure to leave the garlic whole for low FODMAP dieters (you will pick them out later).
- Once the noodles are soft, add the vegetables and herbs to the pan with the Phad Thai sauce. Turn the heat up high and stir continuously for 5 minuets.
- Turn the heat down, push the noodles to one half of the pan and add the eggs. Scramble them until cooked and then mix them in with the noodles.
- Transfer to a serving plate (don't forget to take out the garlic) and crush the peanuts and sprinkle on top.
- Chop a lime in half and add on the side. Grub's up!
