Let me first preface this with I’m a complete spice wimp.  So this recipe might seem a little mild for some people which is why I’ve added some optional extra spices to zing up your stir-fry!  Traditional Pad See Ew is also made with much thicker rice noodles (kinda looks like strips of tagliatelle) but I wanted something a little less dense in texture so that all those wonderful veggies and the truly delicious thing that is Fry’s Family Foods Rice Protein Stir Fry Strips really shine through.

It’s much easier being vegetarian or vegan these days, especially if you’re new to it and still missing certain flavours.  And I’m constantly surprised by the up and coming range of vegan ‘meat alternatives’.  SO MUCH CHOICE!

And this stir fried noodle dish is just SO easy to put together, making it a great staple and regular go-to in our meal plan.  Fresh veggies, translucent almost glass like noodles, delicious Asian flavours and and these vegan protein strips.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE cake. But when I’m hungry it’s food like this (and this!) that I dream about.  A BIG bowl of unbelievable flavour and comfort.

As a spice wimp I make this as one whole dish then take out my portion and add all the extra bits for my spice loving husband.  If you’re a fellow spice wimp, don’t worry.  This vegan Pad See Ew is just as delicious without any extra “omg my mouth’s on fire” extra heat!

I also highly recommend the extra step of the dry fried salted peanuts.  I’m a total nut lover – raw, roasted, salted, all yum to me!  But warm, freshly salted peanuts give this whole vegan Pad See Ew a complete crunchy lift.  I’m actually salivating writing about this, just so ya know ?

  • […] … and lovely fresh veggies – spring onions, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, and grated carrot.  With careful spicing these are anything but bland!  We’ve tried quite a few of their products now – all vegan and all delicious with these Cauliflower and Prawn Style Tacos and my take on a Pad See Ew.
