This is a quick and simple way to make Pad Thai.  You probably have most of these items in your fridge and pantry already.  Tamarind Paste may be the only thing you could have trouble finding.  If you don’t see it at the grocery store, check out an Asian or Indian market.  If you don’t do tofu, go ahead and take it out.  Just heat the garlic and ginger together, and add the other stuff sooner. If you do not like spicy, use less of the jalapeno pepper. Enjoy!
