Reviews for Vegetable Pad Thai
"I Really, really wanted to like this. But the recipe didn't pull together the way pad thai usually does. Not a favorite in our house. Followed directions as is. Would not make again."
"Very nice dish. Used spinach fettuccine, omitted the fish sauce and cilantro (can't stand it), and substituted some chopped shallot for the green onion which we didn't have.We'll keep this on our regular rotation!"
"I don't think this tasted too much like Pad Thai, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. This was my first time cooking with and eating tofu. I followed other reviewers advice and used chili garlic sauce as oppose to hot sauce. Otherwise I made as directed and was quite pleased."
"I love pad thai and was looking for a cheaper alternative to going to a restaurant. I've made this recipe a couple of times. It's good but the flavor is not very similar to what I'm used to from other pad thai I've eaten (I've eaten pad thai at four or five different thai restaurants).I added boiled cubed chicken breasts to the recipe. I also didn't use snow peas or the carrots and substituted rice noodles for the fettuccine. I'm still on the lookout for a better pad thai recipe but this one was not bad."
"This was delicious! I did add hoisin sauce (1 heaping tbsp) since I didn't have fish sauce and found just using extra soy sauce not to be all that thrilling. Also, because I have bees, I used honey for the sugar. Delicious dinner!"
"This was excellent...I don't eat tofu, so substituted halloumi cheese for it... this is a cheese that doesn't melt when heated and is very tasty (this cheese can also be grilled)... this was over-all a delicious dish... I also substituted Pad Thai rice noodles for the fettuccine; if you do use the rice noodles, I would cut back to 8 oz. instead of the 12 oz."
"No need to go out for Thai anymore! This is quick, easy and oh so good! I have substituted shrimp for the tofu when my daughter is home as she's not big into tofu. We make this frequently!"
"I added 2 spoons of peanut butter to the sauce and totally skipped the Tofu and just went with a whole bag of frozen veggies that I stir fried with noodles. The peanuts on top added some great crunch. I loved it and will make it over and over again."
"Excellent!! Easy and quick. I didn't have peanuts so I substituted peanut butter 1/4 cup. Added the pb to the sauce - tasted authentic. I will make this again very soon."
"Made exactly as recipe although I did add some chili-garlic sauce rather than the Louisiana hot sauce. The only change I would make next time is to double the sauce."
"Needs a few more vegetables, but was a delicious and filling dish that the kids loved!"
"We had this for dinner tonight. It was the first time I ever cooked with tofu. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised and my husband thought it tasted very authentic!"
