Vegan Pad Thai with Tofu
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until just al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water to stop further cooking and prevent sticking.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add tofu and cook, stirring, until browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and garlic; cook, stirring, 15 seconds. Add sprouts, scallions, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, crushed red pepper, nutritional yeast and the cooked noodles and tofu. Toss until heated through and the sauce has been absorbed, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with peanuts and the reserved 1/4 cup scallions. Serve with lime wedges.
Note: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
