I absolutely love Thai food, I'm half Thai--so go figure. Well, the other half of me is Italian, so I always knew I was a foodie at heart, and I can stick a fork in it with the best of them.
I came across a great recipe for Pot Sticker Pad Thai from Real Simple. I love it, and must concur that its pretty authentic. This easy recipe is great because its yet another fine example of how you can turn frozen food ( in this case one bag of pot stickers dumplings) into something enticing, like this Thai takeout favorite that's ready in 15 minutes. The peanuts are optional, so omit them if you're concerned about food allergies.
