Two weight watchers Points per serving – makes six servings!

Sweet-and-savory pad Thai is a delicious recipe features classic rice noodles that are mixed with a rainbow of vegetables, tofu, and Sriracha, and topped with eggs, and fresh cilantro.

Keep in mind that rice noodles can vary in thickness, so for the best results, start checking for doneness after 3 minutes. The texture should be cooked through but firm, not mushy. If the noodles need some more soaking time, you should check again every minute and add a little more water if needed.
