Vegan Rad Na (Rice Noodles with Gravy)

Vegan Rad Na (Rice Noodles with Gravy) recipe served in a bowl.

Rad Na (rice noodles in brown gravy) is very similar to my fav Cantonese dish Wat Tan Hor ‘滑蛋河’ but with a touch of sweetness.

When I first came to the US, I miss flat rice noodles the most and was super excited when I saw this dish at a Thai restaurant. Fast forward to today, I can now make this dish in my own kitchen when cravings kick in so I don’t miss home food so much.

Sending loads of love to all of you, WoonHeng⁣❤️

  • 7 oz firm tofu pressed & cut into the desired shape⁣ (200g)
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 serving cornstarch slurry *

  • To prepare the tofu, massage tofu with the marinade & let sit for at least 20 minutes. Then, pan-fried them until golden brown on both sides.⁣
  • Noodles: If using fresh noodles, separate the noodles to loosen up the strands. Then, rub the noodles with sauce. Heat a non-stick pan, then add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add in the noodles and using a pair of tongs, toss noodles until you get a charred look. Remove from the pan and set aside.⁣
  • Using the same pan, add 3 teaspoons of oil and sauté garlic until aromatic. ⁣
  • Add broccoli, pan-fried tofu, and sauté for another 30 secs.⁣
  • Then, add sauce, taste test, and season accordingly.⁣
  • Using a spoon, slowly add the cornstarch slurry (added about 5 tablespoons) and let the mixture simmer until thickened.⁣
  • Finally, add the noodles and toss them with the sauce until all incorporated.⁣
  • Serve warm pickled chili or chili flakes.


* For the cornstarch slurry: mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch in 4 tablespoons water.
