VEGAN PAD THAI
Make THIS, this weekend ✨
TAG A FRIEND AND GRAB RECIPE!
Recipe is very easy, I just explain everything thoroughly for you guys!
Recipe serves 2-3
7-8 ounces rice noodles
2 tablespoons avocado oil or vegetable oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 container baked tofu or firm tofu
4 green onions, cut into 2-inch strips
1 cup bean sprouts
1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons cane sugar sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Sriracha
2 tbsp pure tamarind paste OR (you can make your own… I did! 6 sweet tamarind pods + 1 cup hot water: in this case use 4 tbsp of the homemade tamarind paste)
Notes: -Tamarind paste is sometimes difficult to find thats why I like making my own! It is easy to make too! *DON’T skip the tamarind paste. Its the primary flavor in pad Thai! -You could find tamarind pods in an Asian grocery store and sometimes even regular grocery stores too! -If you buy the rice noodles in an asian market buy the “rice sticks; pho noodles” or at a regular grocery store they are typically just called either Pad Thai noodles or rice noodles.
1.If you have chosen to make your own tamarind paste, take off the shell of 6 tamarind pods then place in a bowl with 1 cup of hot water. Let sit for 5 minutes then using a large fork break down the tamarind, smashing it and mixing…it should create a lumpy sauce, Mix until it becomes a bit smoother…you will see the seeds & a bit of lumpiness.
2.Next grab a medium bowl and spoon out 2 tbsp of tamarind sauce into the bowl (make sure to not get any seeds or big lumps) if using store bought tamarind paste use 2 tbsp, then add cane sugar, lime juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce and Sriracha and minced garlic. Whisk together until smooth and set aside.
3.Prepare the rice noodles according to the directions on package. *The rice noodles I purchased at the asian market required for 6-8 minutes of soaking in hot water. * Its okay that the noodles feel a bit firm (al dente!). Noodles continue to cook in the pan with the sauce. (Recipe cont in comments. ✨)
