"One of our favorite dishes with tofu is Pad Thai. We were eating it out so often, I had to create my own recipe." --CL Reader

How to Make It

Step 1

Place noodles in a large bowl. Add boiling water to cover; let stand 10 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Step 2

Combine vinegar and next 5 ingredients (vinegar through garlic) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle tofu with salt, red pepper, and black pepper. Add tofu to pan; sauté 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan. Add onion, broccoli, and carrot to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan. Add egg to pan; stir-fry 20 seconds or until soft-scrambled, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Return tofu and onion mixture to pan. Stir in noodles and vinegar mixture; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in juice; sprinkle with peanuts.

We left out the tofu for a fast vegetarian dinner! I've also made it with left over rotisserie chicken! Fast and good!

This dish was super easy to make and delicious! I didn't think it was overly spicy at all, and I'm sensitive to spicy food. Also I thought the vinegar would be strong but i didn't taste it at all. The longest part was cutting up the veggies and tofu, the actual cooking went pretty quickly

I thought this was a really good recipe. I bought the wrong rice noodles, and they did not soften up, but that was not the recipe's fault. Next time I will leave out about half of the sugar, but otherwise for a good, healthy Pad Thai it was wonderful.
