Ingredients for Instant Pot Pad Thai:

  • 2 tsps sesame seed oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tsp ginger grated and fresh, or 1/2 tsp dry ground ginger
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 pkg tofu extra firm, cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 4 tbsp aminos or soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 zucchini diced
  • 2 carrots peeled and cut into sticks
  • 2 bell peppers red and green, sliced
  • 1 pkg rice noodles
  • 2 cups vegetable stock low sodium
  • 1/4 cup basil chopped
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper crushed, optional

Garnish with cilantro, peanuts, and lime


    Directions for Instant Pot Pad Thai:

    • Using the sauté mode on the Instant Pot heat sesame oil. When the oil hot add the garlic, ginger, and onions. Sauté for about a minute.
    • Mix in the tofu and put to the side. Add the egg and scramble in the Instant Pot. Pieces of the onion or tofu may get in the egg while scrambling. That is ok.
    • When the egg is scrambled mix it together with the tofu and onions.
    • Mix in the rice vinegar, aminos, and honey. Add the zucchini, bell peppers, and carrots.
    • Place the rice noodles whole in the Instant Pot and pour the stock over the noodles.
    • You may need to push the vegetables and tofu to the side a bit so that the noodles can sit in the broth.
    • Add the lid and make sure the pressure valve is turned to sealing. Using the manual setting cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Let pressure release naturally then mix in the basil and red peppers.
    • Serve immediately garnished with cilantro, peanuts, and lime if desired.
