Make this healthy version of the tasty Thai classic in less time than it takes to have it delivered. If you have fish sauce and aren't a strict vegetarian, substitute it for the soy sauce. It will give the dish deeper flavor.

    After adding the noodles the sauce seemed pretty skimpy. I had used fish sauce for the first batch of sauce, so I used soy sauce for the second. Loved it, on my favorites list now. The only thing I would change if doubling the sauce would be to not double the siracha sauce. It was fine for me but not so much the 10 year old of the house! Oh well, more for me!

    Basic recipe - needs tweaking. Added ginger, basil, peanut oil - but still kind of dry and bland. Think the tofu should be cooked in the sauce, which you need 2 to 3x as much and cook longer to reduce. No problems with the rice noodles after soaking. May want to brown the tofu in a flat pan then toss all in a wok to have less mess. First attempt - will try again with changes.

    DRY, DRY, DRY. I hate when I spend my hard earned money on ingredients, shop at different stores for ingredients, spend an hour preparing, and it is dry!!! This needs some serious sauce. One star. Best part was the noodles.

    Made this tonight, although with the prep (and chasing around my 3 year old,) it took closer to an hour. I made a few tweaks - I added miso, broccoli, ginger, and peppers, and put the peanuts in with the rest of the proteins. It was really really good, like have two bowls good. If you do the veggie prep beforehand, this is definitely a quick meal. I highly recommend it!

    took more like an hour. good for a basic recipe to build on. needs a few tweaks if you don't use fish sauce. i used soy sauce, doubled the sugar, and added about 2 tbsp tamarind concentrate to the sauce mix. skipped the cilantro due to laziness. sliced the tofu block into thin slices, fried them in batches until crispy in a thin layer of peanut oil so it didn't smoke, then sliced up the slices into strips. chopped up the peanuts and mixed them in at the end rather than sprinkling as a garnish.

    Delicious with complex flavors if you use the fish sauce. However, follow package directions to cook noodles . 1 minute in the stir fry after a 30 minute soak was not enough time to cook them. I had to add water which then diluted the sauce and cook longer. Noodles should be boiled separately before adding to stirfry.
