Healthier Tofu Pad Thai

A few weeks ago, I met up with my friend Rachel for dinner at Andaman Thai restaurant in Denton.  We chatted and caught up over a glass of wine and some delicious Thai food which has left me craving it ever since. I searched their menu for a good while looking to branch out a bit and order something I’d never had, but I couldn’t quit thinking about the Tofu Pad Thai. It turns out it was a great decision because it was the best I’d ever had!

Tonight I set out to recreate my beloved Andaman Tofu Pad Thai, and let me tell you…it was simply delicious!

Healthier Tofu Pad Thai – Vegetarian & Gluten Free


Serves 4, 391 calories per serving


  • 1/4 C Braggs Liquid Aminos (or low sodium soy sauce)
  • Juice from 3 limes
  • 2 T Brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 T Sriricha (this was realllllllly spicy! Use less if you don’t love spicy foods)
  • 1 t Sesame oil (or whatever kind of oil you have on hand)


  • 8 oz rice noodles, cooked to package directions
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Carrots, sliced
  • 3 Scallions
  • 1 small head of broccoli. chopped


  • Cilantro
  • Crushed peanuts
  • Lime wedges

To start, cut a block of extra firm tofu into small cubes. Don’t worry about draining it – the excess liquid will cook off. Cook the tofu in a greased skillet on medium-high heat.


Pour a lightly beaten egg into a separate greased skillet and cook until set. Transfer to a cutting board in one piece and cut into slices. Go ahead and chop your veggies now too.


Cook the tofu until it is starting to brown and the excess liquid as cooked off, re-spraying with cooking spray as needed to avoid sticking.


Add chopped veggies and sit aside.


In a large skillet, add sauce ingredients and stir to combine. Bring the sauce to just boiling.


Add tofu, broccoli & carrots and cook until the veggies are soft and sauce has thickened.


Add cooked noodles, scallions & egg,


and toss to combine.


At this point taste to adjust seasonings to your preference.


Garnish with crushed peanuts, cilantro, a lime wedge, & more Sriricha if you’re a crazy person like me!


So much tastier than takeout,


and MUCH healthier too!


I hope you love it as much as I do!
