I’ve got a great recipe for you to kick start the weekend.
The kind of recipe that is cozy and comforting and perfect for a quick and easy dinner. Now you may be wondering what exactly is vegan pad see ew? Well, pad see ew is a traditional Thai noodle dish, similar to a pad thai. Think of it as pad thai’s cousin made with thicker noodles and rich soy flavour.
This dish is traditionally made with Oyster sauce, but this version uses hoisin sauce to keep it 100% vegan. You can alternatively find vegetarian “oyster” sauce to use for this dish as well!
This vegan pad see ew is my latest go to when I’m in need of a big bowl of noodles and want something different than my 15 minute sesame ginger noodles! It’s also filled with healthy Chinese broccoli, bean sprouts, and tofu so it’s a complete meal made in one pan.
- Place rice noodles in a large shallow bowl. Boil water and pour over the rice noodles, letting sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
- Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Cut tofu into small cubes and add to the pan, cooking for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
- Push tofu over to the side of the pan, and add the remaining tbsp of coconut oil and reduce to medium heat. Add the Chinese broccoli to the pan, cooking for 1-2 minutes.
- Next add the rice noodles, stirring everything together.
- Add the light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and Sriracha and mix until combined. Add water, 1 tbsp at a time if the noodles begin to stick, and are still a bit tough.
- Taste the noodles as you go until they are your desired texture. Lastly add the bean sprouts, stirring everything together.
- Give the noodles a taste and add in any more soy sauce or hoisin sauce if desired.
- Serve with chopped green onions, crushed peanuts, and a lime wedge.
