300 grams of firm tofu
salt and pepper

1 tbsp chunk of tamarind + 1/4 cup hot water
or 2 tsp apple cider vinegar + 1/4 cup of water
1 garlic clove finely minced
1 large shallot finely chopped
1 tbsp vegan fish sauce* or 1 tbsp soy sauce/tamari + 1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp light flavoured oil (we used grapeseed oil)
2 tbsp sugar or sweetener of your choice

250 grams of dried pasta of your choice (use rice pasta for a gluten free option)

3 cups vegetables of your choice (we used diced bell peppers, diced cucumber, shredded carrot & mung bean sprouts but feel free to add in your favourite veggies)

Cilantro & roasted peanuts and lime wedges for serving

*Vegan fish sauce may be hard to come by but it does exist! This is the brand we use phuclamchay.vn/xem-san-pham/nu... (not an affiliated link)
If you can't find it, fret not, you can use soy sauce with an extra pinch of salt as a substitute. Vegan fish sauce is a bit on the saltier side compared to soy sauce.

Prepare firm tofu by cutting into 1/2 inch cubes and liberally sprinkling salt and pepper on them. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or until crisp.

If using tamarind paste, first dissolve in hot water and strain out pulp and seeds. Mix tamarind paste with remaining ingredients and refrigerate the sauce for 30 minutes to allow flavours to mingle. Stores well in the the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Prepare pasta according to package. Chop vegetables into small dices or shreds.

In a large mixing bowl, gently toss together cooked pasta, chopped vegetables and Pad Thai sauce. Adjust amount of sauce to taste.

Serve with crispy tofu and garnish with fresh chopped cilanto & crushed roasted peanuts and lime on the side
