Easy Vegan Pad Thai

Updated: 2 days ago

Thai food is usually bursting with flavors, and this Pah Thai is no exception. When I first tried Pad Thai at a restaurant I was not a fan, because I thought it smelled a little strange. When I went with a friend later on, and she ordered Pad Thai minus the egg, I tried it again and loved it. For some reason the smell of eggs does not settle well with me, so it was hard to get past that. But now I'm a fan all the way, I just have to make sure it's not made with eggs. Yuck.


There are a lot of recipes at a Thai restaurant that contain fish sauce in them, so beside to ask if they can make your dishes without fish sauce, if you'r going for a plant-based option. But with this recipe you don't even need to go to a restaurant to enjoy Thai food, you can make it at home for a fraction of the cost. That's always a plus in my book, saving money.
