Pork tenderloin + pad thai = @everydayfood recipe fusion. Why cook one recipe when you can merge two? Tonight I combined the roasting technique from “Roast Pork with Squash and Onions” with “Vegetable Pad Thai,” give or take a few ingredients. The result was a delicious pork pad thai that put the leftover citrus in my kitchen to good use.
Notes from the trenches: I prepared the pork as instructed and substituted zucchini for butternut squash. I also made a few modifications to the pad thai. I didn’t have lime so I used lemon juice instead (and added orange juice later after mixing in the zucchini with the noodles). Also, I didn’t have scallions, which would have made a nice addition, or cilantro and peanuts. The original recipe isn’t available online, so leave a comment if you’d like me to share it.
PS – I just discovered a blog that loves Everyday Food as much as I do (if not more): The Bitten Word. Gorgeous photos too! Check them out on Twitter @bittenword.
