Easy Vegan Pad Thai

On a random day of scrolling through the internet looking for a quick meal to whip up for dinner, I stumbled across a recipe from PETA for “Easy Vegan Pad Thai” and thought to give it a try. It actually turned out pretty good and I ended up making it a second time for my mom, so I decided to share it with you.

What you’ll need:

Soy Sauce
Rice Noodles
Peanut Butter
Olive Oil
Sriracha Sauce

Green Onion

A word of warning the Sriracha sauce can get very spice after a few splashes so please don’t what I did and get Sriracha happy and decided to add a few extra splashes after you added the rice noodles to the sauce…. It makes people not want to eat your cooking again…. Sorry mom.


1 Pack of Rice Noodles
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
½ of a 12 oz. pack of Firm Tofu –drained and chopped-
4. Tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
Juice of 2 limes, or 2 squirts of Lime Juice
3 Tbsp. Sugar
Sriracha Sauce –to taste-
Sliced Green Onion- For garnish,-


·         Boil a pot of water for your noodles, Let the noodles sit for about 15 minutes…. Or however the package tells you to do it

·         In a Frying pan, heat your olive oil on medium heat and add the garlic and tofu chunks. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. of soy sauce on the tofu and garlic and cook until golden brown

·   In a bowl mix together the peanut butter, lime juice, sugar as much  Sriracha sauce as you would like, the remaining 3 Tbsp. of soy sauce and 1 cup of water

·         Add your cooked noodles and the peanut butter sauce to the frying pan with the tofu and garlic and let that cook thoroughly for about 5 minutes

·         Mix in the green onion, serve immediately

In the end, this is a favorite vegan dish I whip up on a lazy day when I don’t feel like doing too much. If you do make the Pad Thai send me pictures to my Twitter @TericaJohnson1 or to my Instagram @Citihippie I would love to see how they turn out.

 Sending you peace, love and happiness
