Thai noodles with tofu instead of chicken. Delicious!

Recipe Ingredients for Pad Thai

14 oz. extra firm tofu, organic
6 oz uncooked rice noodles
2 tbsp canola oil, divided
1/2 lb. chicken, sliced
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1/3 cup peanuts, crushed
2 tbsp paprika
1/4 cup tamarind
1/4 cup sugar
15 oz. bean sprouts, rinsed
1 tsp. red pepper, crushed

Recipe Directions for Pad Thai

Soak rice noodles a couple hours before preparation of food. Cook cubed tofu in 1 tbsp of oil until browned (golden). Set aside. Heat remaining oil in large wok and cook garlic. Then drain noodles and add to garlic in wok. Toss for just a couple minutes and then add tamarind, sugar, peanuts, paprika, and I like to add 2-3 tbsp of thai fish sauce. At the very end I throw in the green onions, bean sprouts and tofu. Some add an egg here, but I don't. The lime, peanuts, and pepper can be added or left to be added by each person as a garnishment. Basically, you can play around with the amounts of all ingredients until you find a taste you love!
