For the Veggies & Sauce

  • 1 White Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 3 medium sized Carrots
  • 200 g Tofu
  • 200 g Rice Noodles
  • 1/4 cups Ground Peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups Soy Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk
  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1-3 tbsp Sriracha (reduce for mild heat)


  • 2 tbsp Green Onions
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 Lime


  • First, presoak the Rice Noodles in warm water. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Next, wash and prepare your veggies. Mince the White Onion and Garlic. Slice the Red Pepper. Grate your Carrots. Cut the Tofu into cubes.
  • Then, add the minced Onion and Garlic with a splash of water to the pan. Sauté over medium heat until translucent, about 2 minutes.
  • Using the same pan, add in the rest of the prepared veggies. Sauté again until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Next, add the presoaked Rice Noodles to the pan. Pour in the Soy Sauce, Maple Syrup, Coconut Milk and Sriracha. Add 1/2 cup of water to the pan as well the Ground Peanuts. Mix, until everything is well combined. Let it simmer for about a minute or so or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Turn off the heat and stir the Lime Juice in. Divide the Pad Thai into three bowls and top them with Cilantro Leaves, more Ground Peanuts and Green Onions. Enjoy!


  • Maple Syrup can be substituted with White or Brown Sugar. 
  • Soy Sauce can be substituted with Tamari or Coconut Aminos. 
  • Enjoy the Pad Thai fresh out of the Pan, otherwise the noodles will stick together afterwards.
