Vegetarian Pad Thai



An authentic Pad Thai recipe for real vegetarian Thai food lovers, or those who want a lighter noodle dish without the meat. This Pad Thai recipe does offer adequate protein in the form of eggs (vegans can omit this ingredient), and ground nuts. Plus, because it's made with rice noodles, Pad Thai is a gluten free recipe.

  • 2 tbsp. sweet soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. oil
PREPARATION:

  • Wash all vegetables well.
  • Cut the kale into short lengths and remove hulls and root tips from the bean sprouts.
  • Cut yellow tofu into the cubes size
  • Heat oil in a wok over high heat and add the small rice noodles, sweet soy sauce and water and stir fry for several minutes.
  • Add cubes of tofu, kale and the remaining ingredients and continue to stir fry until done.
