Vegan Pad Kee Mao (Thai Drunken Noodles)

Pad Kee Mao is one of our favorite Thai dishes. This delicious vegan Pad Kee Mao, or Thai drunken noodles, recipe has a lovely combination of vegetables, sauce and spices. Learning this recipe at a cooking school while visiting Thailand was very fortunate. After reminiscing about that trip, quite a bit lately, we decided to play around with a few of the recipes that we learned in that class. We truly wish that we could have visited the amazing Floating Market or infamous Chatuchak Weekend Market to access all of the authentic ingredients needed for this dish. Although we didn’t have all of these authentic ingredients that we wanted, we still had fun recreating a few of our favorite Thai recipes with a plant-based twist! We have to admit that we think this version of Pad Kee Mao came out super delicious. We really hope you enjoy it too!
