Easy Gluten-Free Vegan Pad Thai

When I went to Thailand, Pad Thai and fried rice inside a pineapple were my favourite hot dishes! I have been feeling very nostalgic lately and miss everything about Thailand, including those Pad Thais. 

I came across this vegan recipe, whilst reviewing a vegan cookbook called ‘The Vegan Bible’ by Marie Laforêt. I absolutely love this recipe and how yummy it is. I may have, may have eaten the whole wok of this by myself. Just maybe.

For any of your Thai food lovers out there, I am sure you will L-O-V-E this.

  1. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Put the rice noodles in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Drain after 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, heat the oil in a wok or a frying pan and saute the shallots, garlic, ginger and chilli over a high heat for a few minutes.
  4. Add the tofu and cook for a few minutes, stirring continuously, to brown it a little.
  5. Add the sauce and then the noodles and stir gently. Mix in the sprouts.
  6. Divine into 2 bowls, then top with coriander, sprouts, squeeze the lime over the dish and sprinkle some peanuts! Eat immediately!
  1. I usually make it and eat it all myself, the whole 2 portions, its TOO IRRESISTIBLE! I find it so satisfying and delicious, and most importantly so easy to make and not a bad meal to have for lunch or dinner. Try it! x
