Since I’m back on the cooking wagon, I made the Brooklyn Pad Thai from Vegan w/ a Vengeance. The finished product was yummy, but getting there was a pain. When I was cooking the tofu in boiling hot peanut oil, some of the oil splashed up on my arm. Ouch!! I have a big mark now. 😦 Plus, for whatever reason , I decided to ignore the directions (which say to cook it in two batches) and I cooked it all at the same time. Let me just say, a pound of pasta is hard to control. Everything barely fit in our huge wok! My kitchen is a friggin’ mess now…but oh well. I have tons of yummy pad thai for the entire week!
As far as the recipe goes, I couldn’t find lemongrass nor dried chilis (maybe I didn’t look hard enough?), so those weren’t included. Also, I used spelt soba noodles instead of rice noodles-cause I didn’t see rice noodles and the soba noodles were cheap!
I will be posting a picture later-Matt has his camera w/ him right now.
If you can’t wait–check out this pic, which is from the same recipe, but made by someone else. Mine looks more or less like this. http://static.flickr.com/44/107228164_c65c6c9037.jpg
