Vegan Pad Thai
Safe to say I had a thai-ny craving for pad thai over the past week, soooo I created my own take on a classic. This vegan homemade pad thai has so many flavors, it is quite en-thai-cing😋 On the real, Zac has never liked or wanted Thai food so it was a miracle I was able to create a homemade twist on Pad Thai to fit his (& my) liking.
Keeping it short & sweet so let's get down to the goodness:
I N G R E D I E N T S
1 pack of @koyonoodles soba (or any type of noodle you would like)
chopped bok choy, dino kale, celery, mushrooms, onions and carrots
2 finely chopped cloves of garlic
1 tsp turmeric
P E A N U T S A U C E
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp cayenne powder
1.5 inch grated ginger
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp coconut aminos
1/2 tsp pink salt
C R I S P Y T O F U
1 package of extra-firm tofu, dried
2 tbsp coconut aminos
1-2 turmeric drops
2 tbsp Wildbrine Probiotic Kimchi Sriracha
D I R E C T I O N S
1. Preheat the oven to 350 while the tofu is being dried by a towel with a hard weight on top to squeeze any excess liquid out. Once it is dried (~5-10mins), cut the tofu into thin squares. Mix the coco aminos with turmeric, and sriracha (I used Wildbrine Probiotic Spicy Kimchi Sriracha - it has amazing flavors!) and immerse the tofu into the marinade. Once fully coated, place the tofu on a lined baking sheet & set in the oven for roughly ~10-15 minutes.
2. Chop up all the veggies you would like to use and begin to stir fry these on a skillet in avocado or extra virgin olive oil until soft.
3. Mix together the ingredients for the peanut sauce and set off to the side.
4. Boil a pot of water with some pink salt for the noods and place those into the pot once it reaches a rolling boil. Cook for roughly 5-10 minutes or until soft.
5. Mix the noods with the cooked vegetables in the skillet, bringing the heat down to low & adding in the sauce.
6. By this time, the tofu should be good and crispy so remove from the oven & allow to cool.
7. Dish up & enjoy!!
I hope you enjoy this recipe! At the time, it was everything but the kitchen sink so it seems a bit random to have Soba noodles - but I swear, they're amazing!
Please let me know if you enjoy this recipe or if you have a particular recipe in mind that you would like to see my twist on!!
