It seems it's been a while since we've had Pad Thai, and I think we may have a new favorite recipe. We've sort of done our own thing in the past and there's a good recipe we've used a lot in an old issue of Vegetarian Times, but Vegan with a Vengeance continues to impress. Tonight I mostly followed the recipe in there and it was really good. The sauce was very intense, what with the tamarind and all, but very flavorful. In addition to the tamarind concentrate, the sauce had rice vinegar, Asian chile sauce, tomato paste, sugar, and soy sauce. The rest of the dish was the obligatory rice noodles with tofu, red onion, garlic, lemongrass, bean sprouts, scallions and chopped peanuts. It was garnished with cilantro and limes. And we've still got a lime and a big bunch of cilantro left so I'm thinking there may be something Mexican/Southwestern/Tex-Mex in our future (but probably not tomorrow night since we'll be busy and we've still got various leftovers we need to clear out of the fridge). Stay tuned.
