Vegetable Pad Thai in Tamarind Sauce

This pad thai recipe is full of only the best unrefined, healthy and nourishing ingredients. Tamarind tastes a bit like a date but is less sweet (and more sour), and is sometimes known as the Indian date. It is a key ingredient in Worcestershire sauce.

  • 1 pack brown rice or udon noodles
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • ½ large red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, cut into fine matchsticks
  • ½ cup spring onions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • ½ cup toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup red radish, very thinly sliced
  • Fresh lime slices
Tamarind sauce
  • 2 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 2 tbsp brown rice vinegar
  • 1½ tbsp shoyu
  • 1½ tbsp rice mirin
  • 1 tbsp ume plum seasoning
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed ginger juice
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions and set aside. Add the tamarind sauce ingredients to a small pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer on a very low heat for one minute. Remove from the heat and set aside. Heat a splash of filtered water in a wok over high heat and add the garlic, onion, carrot and spring onions, with a pinch of sea salt. Mix together and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the noodles, tamarind sauce, bean sprouts, and herbs. Stir to combine and turn off the heat. Add the radish slices and seeds on top.
