A note about serious food allergies

Perhaps the most classic take-out dish of all time, Pad Thai just gets us. Could it be the succulent rice noodles soaking up the sweet-and-savory sauce? Or the crunchy sprouts and roasted peanuts playing against the soft, stir-fried tofu? Maybe it's the egg that makes this dish feel like a meal that satisfies your every craving. Whatever the case, you'll love our make-at-home version that's every bit as authentic as the original, without weighing you down.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Large Pan
  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients
    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Drain tofu, rinse under cold water, and pat dry. Cut into ½" cubes. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Halve lime. Thinly slice green onion at an angle (called a “bias” cut). Chop garlic into thin slivers. Stem cilantro.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Vermicelli
    2

    Cook the Vermicelli

    Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, remove the pot from the heat, and add the vermicelli. Let the vermicelli soak until tender, about 5 minutes. (Rice vermicelli only needs to be soaked in hot water, instead of boiled.) Drain, pat dry, cut into 3" lengths, and return to the pot.

  • Step 3 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together juice of the lime, fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, 1 tsp. of sambal to taste (sambal can be spicy), ⅔ of green onion (reserving a pinch for garnish), and chopped garlic. Place the sauce in the pot with the cooked noodles, ensuring even coating, and let sit and marinate while you cook the eggs.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Eggs

    Cook the Eggs

    Finish the Pad Thai

    Heat the same pan that you cooked the eggs in over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and tofu and cook for 1 minute or until warm. When warmed, add the vermicelli, sauce, and eggs, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes until warmed throughout.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish
