Pad Thai Noodles with Butter and Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Pad Thai Noodles with Butter and Oven Roasted Tomatoes

  • What's in it?

Noodles (I like Explore Cuisine brown rice, organic pad thai), tomatoes, Miyoko's Vegan Butter, salt, pepper

  • Where did I find it?

This is a simple recipe I came up with in my kitchen!  I had read great reviews about Miyoko's Vegan Butter and finally found some at my local Trader Joe's.  Once I tasted it, I thought it would work well melted on pasta. I had some left over pad thai noodles in the fridge and some left over roasted tomatoes as well. So I put all these together and came up with this simple, tasty dish!

  • Why do I like it?

What could be more comforting than a plate of pasta with butter?  There are vegan options for butter substitutes, but none can compare to Miyoko's creation.  The flavor is wonderful, it melts beautifully, although it does stay relatively firm out of the fridge.

The roasted tomatoes add the right amount of acid to balance out this simple dish.  You could probably add in any vegetable of choice or fresh herbs or fresh lemon juice as well.
