Vegetarian Pad Thai

Adapted slightly from this recipe at Brownies for Dinner

Ingredients (Serves 2-4)

  1. 8 ounces of whole wheat pasta, such as linguine
  2. 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  3. 2 Tbsp of lime juice
  4. 3 Tbsp of soy sauce or tamari
  5. 2 tsp of EVOO
  6. 4 scallions/green onions, ends removed and sliced
  7. 1 garlic clove, minced
  8. 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
  9. 1/4 cup of peanuts, chopped
  10. 4 ounces of tofu, cubed (I used a baked teriyaki tofu)
  11. red pepper flakes to taste (optional)---I did not add


Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, and red pepper flakes (if using). In a large skillet, heat EVOO. Add garlic and half of green onions to skillet. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, then add in tofu. Cook several minutes until tofu starts to brown. Add remaining green onions, pasta, and sauce to skillet. Toss ingredients to combine and cook for a few additional minutes until heated thoroughly. Top pasta with cilantro and peanuts. Enjoy!
