Rainbow Pad Thai Salad with Tofu Scramble

I’ve been meaning to write up this super fresh recipe for pad Thai salad with tofu scramble for ages now – where does time go?? I was in the process of deleting some of the thousands of photos on my iPad (I hate deleting even them though I know they’re backed up) and came across some pics I’d taken a few weeks ago for this delicious and unbelievably healthy pad Thai salad.
I absolutely love Thai flavours, I can’t say this is completely authentic but I think it captures the key flavours. And I love the colour, texture and contrast of the crisp veg, soft and creamy tofu, edamame and of course crunchy peanuts and cashews.

This recipe has quite a long list of ingredients but don’t be put off its really quick and easy to make and its so deliciously healthy and nourishing with all the amazingly colourful veg; green, orange, purple etc… like eating a rainbow.

    This looks absolutely delicious!! I used to love pad thai but it was just way too heavy and too saucy at restaurants. Your take looks so fresh and delicious to perfection. I love the idea of combining the salad with a tofu scramble!
