Vegetable and Tofu Pad ThaiMake a healthier version of the tasty Thai classic in less time than it takes to have it delivered. If you have fish sauce and aren't a strict vegetarian, substitute it for the soy sauce. It will give the dish deeper flavor.

  • Not my particular cup of tea

    Easy enough reciepe. Probably just personal tastes but I didn't much care for it.

    This was my 1st time trying tofu though and I have to say that I would try tofu again because of this reciepe!

    The peanuts are must. Things are a little mushy without them.
  • Pretty Good

    This was my first time cooking with tofu. I liked the meal, but I think it would have been better without the tofu or with shrimp.

    Made it! Used the recipe exactly except for at the end adding some prepared low sodium chicken broth sprinkled on top while in the pan because the noodles had dried out somewhat. It was yummy and I usually don't like recipes without some sort of meat but this was very good!
