PERFECT PAD THAI

Thai food is TRULY one of my favorite foods when I treat myself to a dining experience and night out on the town. Here is a take on one of my favorite Thai dishes!



Serves:
8
Hands-on time: 30 minutes.
Total time: 30 minutes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 oz brown rice noodles ( I use Annie Chun's brand Pad Thai Brown Rice Noodles)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp coconut nectar or raw honey
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 egg white, whisked
  • 2 cups green cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, julienned or thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and julienned or cut into thin matchstick pieces
  • 12 oz firm tofu, cubed (See note at bottom of page)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 2 tbsp unsalted peanuts, crushed
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • Lime wedges and additional cilantro, for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cook brown rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together tomato paste, vinegar, coconut nectar, fish sauce, lime juice and cayenne. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick pan or wok over medium-high for 1 minute. Melt coconut oil . Add egg white and sauté until cooked, about 2 minutes. Remove egg white from heat and dice into small pieces.
  4. In the same pan melt more coconut oil sauté  garlic,cabbage, bean sprouts, onions and carrot over medium-high for 2 minutes. Add tofu and cook for another 2 minutes. Add cooked egg white and cilantro, sautéing for another 2 minutes. Then stir in tomato paste mixture. Add cooked noodles. Stir until completely combined and thoroughly heated, about 3 to 4 more minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and toss with peanuts before serving. Garnish with lime wedges and additional cilantro,if desired.
*Note: If you have a picky eater in your clan who’s averse to eating tofu, swap the vegetable protein for a cup of cooked, cubed chicken or turkey breast*

*Note : Most fish sauces have sugar added to them The ONLY brand I use is Red Boat Fish Sauce. Click the fish sauce link in the ingredient section above to learn more about that brand*
