Pad thai, phat thai, or phad thai, is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as a street food and at most restaurants in Thailand as part of the country’s cuisine. It is typically made with rice noodles, a protein, peanuts, a scrambled egg, and bean sprouts, among other vegetables. Wikipedia
Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it is also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein. Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties.
You can definitely freeze any Turkey Pad Thai leftovers of this recipe but keep in mind that the noodles texture might change a little bit when you freeze it. I would recommend fully defrosting it before you heat it up if you do freeze any leftovers. Turkey also freezes very really well.
