Vegetarian Pad Thai Recipe

Posted on September 19th, 2011 in Alternative Things To Do,Recipes by Stephanie

I absolutely love Thai food and one of my favourite Thai dishes is a noodle dish called Pad Thai so I’m going to share my Vegetarian Pad Thai recipe with you all. This recipe can also be made with prawns, chicken or whatever you want to put in it too.

Ingredients (Serves 4):

250g/9oz rice stick noodles
4 tbsp groundnut oil
4 garlic cloves, finely  chopped
2 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp lime juice
100g / 3 1/2oz beansprouts
75g string beans
4 spring onions, chopped
1 small courgette, chopped
125g / 4 1/2oz deep fried tofu, chopped into 5mm / 1/4inch pieces


  1. Soak the rice noodles in hot water for about 15 minutes, drain thoroughly and put to one side.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok and fry the garlic over a high heat for 30 seconds. Add the tofu, courgette and string beans and stir-fry for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the sugar, fish sauce, ketchup and lime juice and stir-fry for a further 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in the noodles, then add the beansprouts and spring onions and stir-fry for a further 30 seconds to cook lightly.
  5. Turn out onto a serving dish and serve immediately.

This looks way yummy. But is there ever a good enough substitute for rice noodles? I can’t seem to find any where I’m from. All I come across are ramen noodles!

Oh my gosh, pad thai is my absolute favourite meal in the whole world! I like to put Quorn in mine for a great vegetarian alternative to chicken.

Indeed good vegetarian recipes are hard to find, this may be why some of us non vegetarians are afraid to make the full transition… this recipe looks delicous!

This one looks really delicious for a food that’s super healthy. Seems like quite easy to prepare. I’m sure both vegetarians and non-vegetarians are going to love this.
