Pad Thai Pseudo recipe













Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Low Sodium


¼ cup fish sauce
¼ cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon paprika
8 ounces rice noodles
8 ounces tofu
2 tablespoons shrimp
2 each garlic cloves
2 large eggs
¾ pound mung bean sprouts
3 each scallions, spring or green onions
¾ cup peanuts


Combine first four ingredients and let sit until sugar dissolves.

Soak rice noodles/sticks in warm water until they are soft but don't disintegrate when pressed, about 40 minutes.


Drain tofu by wrapping it in a clean towel and pressing with a large can of tomatoes, about 30 minutes.

Cut into ¼ inch cubes. Rinse dried shrimp in water and drain.

Put oil in wok, heat to medium, put in crushed garlic.

Swirl around for about a minute.

Add noodles and mix around for a minute or two.

Add the tofu and shrimp then immediately add the liquid.

Keep stirring until the liquid has all been absorbed into the noodles, about a couple of minutes.

Lower heat to low or medium-low.

Push some of the stuff aside at one end of wok, and break an egg in.

Immediately cover with noodles.

Do the same at the other end of wok.

Let the eggs cook undisturbed until the yolks are practically cooked, about three minutes.

Slip a slotted spoon under each egg in turn, and bring upward, through the noodles, shaking as you go.

The idea is to break up the cooked egg into the rest of the mixture into tiny bits.

Mix in sprouts and green onions.

Let cook for another two minutes.

Turn off heat.

Add crushed peanuts and enough roasted red chilies to your desired hotness.
