When cooked exactly as per the provided recipe, I found the sauce to be too thick (my garlic was burning at 2 minutes, too), and the fettuccine far too large. In later attempts of this recipe, I shot for an "idiot version" pad thai: I combined steps 2 and 3, and shortened the cooking time to about 90 seconds total, used a packet of re-hydrated rice stick noodles instead of the fettuccine, and added 1/4 - 1/2 cup of hot water at the very end, which made the sauce more creamy. My variation has made it into my family's regular menu rotation!
Love the sauce. Used it for egg noodles with stir fry.
I agree with another viewer that if I had completely followed the instructions my meal would have an unfavorable outcome. My garlic was burning at about 2 minutes (even though I had already added in the next few ingredients as per the recipe. I also felt it needed a lot more veggies, so I added 1/2 of a zucchini, 1 portobello mushroom, and doubled the amt of broccoli. We did enjoy this very rich vegan dinner with a cucumber salad on the side.
We've made this recipe quite a few times since coming across it. We've made quite a few modifications such as upping the veggies and adding tofu and peanuts. Also, I use whole wheat noodles and still think it tastes great. I tried to cut back on the noodles and up the veggies! I really think it is delicious and I love that it takes less than 30 min to whip up! :D
Loved this. Added a little Gardein "Chi'kn" for some extra protein, making it a fantastic vegan main. Thanks so much for posting! I will definitely make this again.
This is so good and easy to make! I've made it several times, and I pretty much follow the recipe exactly. Thank you for a delicious vegetarian dish!
Easily 5 stars! This is yummy, easy, and healthy enough. Made this with soba noodles (just felt it more authentic this way). Next time I'll add significantly more vegi's but really won't change anything else...it's really good (and super quick and easy). Thanks @m@nd@!
Loved this recipe! Did most as suggested with the exception of sub honey for sugar and lowering the flame, only, while the garlic was cooking. We neither found the sauce to thick nor the dish in need of additional veggies. Clearly the noodles were the star of this dish. The carrots added a slight crunch and the broccoli a bit of color and texture. Great!
Delicious!!!!! We all loved this dish. I changed it a bit, I took out the Soy Sauce and added my own, because we don't eat soy, cut out the red pepper flakes, just too spicy for us, and changed it to paprika, and was not sure if there was alchol in the rice wine vinegar so used apple cider vinegar, it was quite good.
Soo good! Kinda spicy, but sweet. I used what I had: bag of stir fry vegs, red wine vinegar, cubed garlic, & penne, then doubled it. It's got a bite! Next time I'll try cook pepper more/use less, maybe less vinegar and more PB! Soy was right on though.
