Spring vegetables Fusion Pad Thai

Hello! Do you enjoy eating foods?

I got bored with eating/cooking a bit and wanted to make something different. Then I experimented with this pad thai recipe using my soba noodles with tahini sauce. It turned out good! It is a vegan recipe, but you can use meats, eggs, or seafood if you like!

I used brown rice noodle with moringa from Lotus Foods.
