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

fresh lime

cilantro

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!!
