1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Sriracha

4 tbsp+chopped shallots
14 to 16-ounce) package firm tofu
1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil

Recipe Directions for Vegetarian Pad Thai

  1. Soak noodles in a large bowl of warm water until softened, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain well in a colander and cover with a dampened paper towel.

  2. Meanwhile, make sauce by mixing soy sauce, brown sugar, and Sriracha, stirring until sugar has dissolved.

  3. Rinse tofu, then cut into 1-inch cubes and pat very dry.

  4. With oil in wok over high heat fry tofu in 1 layer, gently turning occasionally, until golden, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer tofu to paper towels using a slotted spoon. Pour off frying oil and reserve.

  5. Lightly beat eggs with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in wok over high heat until it shimmers. Add eggs and swirl to coat side of wok, then cook, stirring gently with a spatula, until cooked through. Break into chunks with spatula and transfer to a plate.

  6. Cut shallots crosswise into very thin slices with slicer.Cut scallions into 2-inch pieces. Halve pale green and white parts lengthwise. Heat wok over high heat until a drop of water evaporates instantly. Pour in 6 tablespoons oil, then swirl to coat side of wok. Stir-fry veggies, when almost done add scallions, garlic, and shallots cook until softened.

  7. Add noodles and stir-fry over medium heat (use 2 spatulas if necessary) 3 minutes. Add tofu, bean sprouts, and 1 1/2 cups sauce and simmer, turning noodles over to absorb sauce evenly, until noodles are tender, about 2 minutes.

  8. Stir in additional sauce if desired, then stir in eggs and transfer to a large shallow serving dish.

  9. Sprinkle pad Thai with peanuts and serve with lime wedges, cilantro sprigs, and Sriracha.
