  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 10 mL (2 tsp.) garlic, minced
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) carrots, julienned/grated
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) cilantro, chopped
  • 500 mL (2 cups) bean sprouts
  • 1/2 green onion stem, diced
  • 30-45 mL (2-3 Tbsp) cooking oil
  • SAUCE INGREDIENTS
  • 30 mL (2 Tbsp.) Tamarind paste
  • 75 mL (1/3 cup) brown sugar
  • 90 mL (6 Tbsp.) fish sauce
  • 15 mL (1 Tbsp.) sriracha chili (to taste)
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) water or vegetable broth
  • 30 mL (2 Tbsp.) soya sauce
  • 75 mL (1/3 cup) ketchup to taste
  • 1 mL (1/4 tsp.) pepper
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) peanuts, chopped and roasted (optional garnish)

Directions

  1. Soak pad thai noodles in a bowl of warm water for 25-30 minutes, or until limp but still too firm to eat.
  2. Drain and rinse noodles with cold water. Place in a bowl and cover with a dampened paper towel to avoid hardening.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Stir well to dissolve the paste and sugar. Set aside.
  4. Warm a wok over medium-high heat. Add 15-30 mL (1-2 Tbsp.) of oil, green onions and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Add the tofu and stir-fry for 2 minutes, then add carrots.
  6. Move ingredients to the side of the wok and add 30 mL (2 Tbsp.) to the center of the wok. Add beaten eggs and stir-fry briefly to scramble.
  7. Add the drained noodles and 1/3 of the sauce.
  8. Stir-fry everything together for 1-2 minutes. Keep adding sauce and stir-fry for 3-6 minutes until sauce is absorbed and noodles are soft but chewy.
  9. Turn off heat and add the bean sprouts and cilantro. Place dish and garnish with peanuts if desired.
