Pad See Ew — a vegan take on the classic Thai street food dish. Wide rice noodles, seitan “chicken,” and Chinese Broccoli sizzled in a wok with an addictive savory sauce.
Pad See Ew is undoubtedly one of my favorite Thai dishes (along side Pad Thai and Pad Kee Mao). Just like many other Thai stir-fries, Pad See Ew is actually relatively easy to make at home. Traditionally, the dish is not vegan as it is often made with fish sauce, eggs, among other animal protein choices (shrimp, beef, chicken). For my plant-based version, I am using vegan oyster sauce and fermented black bean sauce to mimic those complex umami flavors.
