This pad thai was OK. I used the recipe from Vegan with a Vengance. I really prefer a lighter pad thai. I also don't like pad thai with any tomatoe in it - sometimes the sauce tastes like ketchup to me... this pad thai had tomatoe paste in it. I absolutely adore the recipe in 125 Best Vegan Recipes. So, the next time I am craving pad thai, I will stick to that one.
