Pad Thai is possibly one of the most popular dishes amongst new travelers in the kingdom of Thailand, and it seems to be a top pick as a evening snack for a lot of people no matter how long they have been in Thailand. If you are unfamiliar with the dish it is a stir-fry of noodles and bean sprouts with a sweet tamarind sauce often served with lime and nuts.
It is often sold as a street food made with low quality instant noodles, dried prawns and lacings of MSG, so it can often be off the menu to many people because of this, our version is a cheap and easy gluten free recipe that tastes authentic and of course is vegan.
Vermicelli noodles are used in this recipe, they are gluten free and are sometimes called ‘glass noodles’ because of their appearance. If you don’t like these noodles, you can always use thicker rice noodles and follow the same method, it will be just as good!
