I love Thai food, so of course I had to take a stab at another dish that I love – drunken noodles! Sometimes it also goes by the name of pad see ew. So of course I had to take a stab at vegan drunken noodles/vegan pad see ew. I healthified even further by replacing some of the ingredients for more wholesome items. Like all my other recipes, this has a ton of nutritional benefits. I loved this dish and could not stop myself from getting more, even though I wasn’t even hungry! But what I love is that there is no guilt when eating these foods. Try it and see!
