Notes on Ingredients

Shirataki noodles are a fantastic low-carb alternative to traditional noodles. Combined with tofu, mushrooms, and a tangy peanut sauce, this dish is both satisfying and nutritious. You can customize it by adding your favorite veggies or swapping tofu for another meat alternative.

How to Make Shirataki Meatless Meat Pad Thai

  1. Prep the Noodles: Place shirataki noodles in a bowl of hot water and set aside.
  2. Cook the Tofu: Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir tofu chunks until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer tofu to a plate.
  3. Prepare the Sauce: In a small microwave-safe bowl, whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, white sugar, peanut butter, and sriracha sauce. Heat in the microwave until smooth, about 20 seconds. Stir well.
  4. Scramble the Eggs: In the same skillet, cook and stir eggs until cooked through and scrambled, about 5 minutes.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Add mushrooms and cooked tofu to the eggs. Pour in half of the peanut sauce and mix well. Drain the shirataki noodles and add them to the mixture. Pour in the remaining peanut sauce. Mix in 1/4 cup of chopped cashews.
  6. Simmer: Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  7. Serve: Transfer the Pad Thai to a serving bowl and top with the remaining cashews, bean sprouts, and lime wedges.
