Vegan Pad Thai

For Day 3, week 1 of BM #48, here is another Thai dish which is a favorite at home.

Next time around, I would scramble the tofu separately and add it to the stir fried vegetables.

Recipe adapted from here
Ingredients - 

Peanut Oil 3 Tbsp
Thai Rice Noodles 6-8 oz
Tofu, scrambled 1 cup
Garlic, grated 1 tsp
Onion, chopped 3 Tbsp
Cabbage, chopped 1/2 cup
Bean Sprouts 2 cups
Roasted Peanuts 1/2 cup
Vegetable Stock 4 Tbsp
Spring onion, chopped as needed for garnish
Cilantro, chopped as needed for garnish
Lime/lemon wedges if needed
Pad Thai Sauce - 
Tamarind extract 1 Tbsp or as needed
Soy Sauce 3 Tbsp
Brown Sugar 1 tsp
Chilli flakes 2 tsp (or as needed)
Vegetable Stock 1/4 cup
Freshly ground pepper as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Soak the noodles in boiling water for about 8 minutes or cook as per instructions on the package. The noodles should be a little less than cooked al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix all the ingredients listed under pad thai sauce and set aside.

In a wok/kadai, heat oil and saute the garlic and onion. Then add in the cabbage and stir fry adding a teaspoon of vegetable stock.

Add in the scrambled tofu and let it cook along with the vegetables. 

Add the noodles and stir fry the whole mixture adding a little pad thai sauce at a time.

Remove from heat and add the bean sprouts. Toss well adding the peanuts as well.

Serve hot with a spring onion and cilantro garnish with some lime/lemon wedges.
