#Vegan Recipe of the Day: Pad Thai

1 cup water, plus more for soaking the noodles 
1 10-oz. package rice noodles or ramen-style noodles 
2 Tbsp. olive oil 
2 cloves garlic 
1/2 12-oz. package extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into chunks 
4 Tbsp. soy sauce 
2 Tbsp. peanut butter 
Juice of 2 limes 
3 Tbsp. sugar 
Sriracha, to taste 
Sliced green onions, for garnish 
Chopped peanuts, for garnish (optional) 

  • Fill a large microwave-safe bowl with water and heat in the microwave until boiling. Carefully submerge the rice noodles in the water and let soak for about 15 minutes.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the garlic cloves and tofu chunks. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce over the tofu and sauté until golden brown.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, lime juice, sugar, Sriracha, remaining soy sauce, and 1 cup of water.
  • Add the soaked noodles and peanut butter mixture to the tofu and cook through, about 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions and chopped peanuts and serve right away. Enjoy!
