Vegan Pad Thai Recipe
- 200 g rice noodles
- 120 g Organic Peanut Butter
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 4 tbsp. coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp. siracha
- 340 ml coconut milk
- 3 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
- Some ginger
- 3 cloves garlic
- 85 ml soy sauce
- 100 g tofu
- Some spring onions
- Handful of bean sprouts
- 50 g peanuts
Cook rice noodles according to instructions on packet.
In the meantime, make the peanut sauce. Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, coconut sugar, siracha, coconut milk in a small saucepan and slowly bring to boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and set on the side.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and stir fry the ginger and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
Add in the drained noodles and cook for another 2 minutes until they have softened. Add the soy sauce and coconut sugar, and keep stirring. Add the tofu in and mix well to combine all the ingredients. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add more soy sauce, chopped spring onions, chopped peanuts, bean sprouts and keep on stirring to prevent the ingredients sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Add a dash of water if it looks too dry. Cook for another 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat and serve it with chopped spring onions, coriander, lime slices, sesame seeds and drizzle the peanut sauce on top.
