Vegan Coconut Green Curry Pad Thai

There’s a wonderful restaurant in Vancouver, BC called Chau Veggie Express¬† that I’ve recently been enjoying and the Coconut Curry Pad Thai bowl is my fave so I thought I would try making it myself and it worked out wonderfully!padthai5

The basis of this dish is the rich flavorful Coconut Milk sauce which is made from either a homemade green curry paste or a store bought one (check the label to see if it’s vegan). I also used fresh Swiss Chard from my garden, sweet pepper (I ended up using some frozen yellow pepper as I had frozen 4 containers of them earlier in the spring when I had a surplus), leftover tofu (about 1/3 of a block), grated Butternut Squash in place of carrots and Pea Sprouts.

The Mailwoman came by to deliver a Groupon order for me while I was cooking and they were very enticed by the amazing aromas wafting from my kitchen. This is a simple to make, healthy and gluten free winner! Let me know if you try it in the comments below.
