Pad Thai
Serves 2
125 g rice noodles or vermicelli
2 tbsp neutral vegetable oil
1 shallot, finely sliced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp chopped ginger
½ red chilli, fresh or dried, finely chopped
125 g firm tofu, crumbled
100 g mung bean sprouts
For the sauce
60 ml vegetable stock
2 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp red chilli paste
pepper
For the garnish
1 lime, quartered
1 small bunch fresh coriander, chopped1 handful peanuts or cashew nuts, chopped
Put the rice noodles or vermicelli in a bowl and cover with
boiling water. Drain after 5 minutes. For the sauce, mix all
the ingredients in a bowl with a fork. Heat the oil in a wok
or frying pan and sauté the shallot, garlic, ginger and chilli
over high heat for a few minutes. Add the tofu and cook
for a few minutes, stirring continuously, to brown it a little.
Add the rice noodles or vermicelli and the sauce. Stir gently
so as not to break the noodles. Mix in two thirds of the
mung bean sprouts. Divide between two bowls or plates
and top with lime wedges, chopped fresh coriander and the
remaining mung bean sprouts. Sprinkle with the nuts. Serve
immediately.

Dessert: Mini Strawberry Palmiers (heart shaped!)

Mini strawberry palmiers
Makes about 15 palmiers
1 sheet organic vegan puff pastry
4 tbsp strawberry jam
ground cinnamon
ground vanilla
Unroll the puff pastry and cut into strips about 1 cm wide
along the length of the pastry. Spread them with the
strawberry jam, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and vanilla,
and then roll the strips symmetrically towards the centre
from both ends to form palmiers. Line a baking tray with
parchment paper. Place them on the prepared tray and bake
for 15 minutes at 180°C (Gas mark 4). Use a spatula to
loosen the palmiers and leave to cool on a wire rack.
