Street Pad Thai

A recent trip to Thailand showcased all the wonderful dishes and ingredients that this country has to offer. From fresh fruit, coconut curries, rice and noodles and stir-fried vegetable dishes, Thailand is a country with many options for vegetarian and vegan guests. The most popular and well-known Thai dish is "pad thai", something that can be found easily being prepared by street food vendors. For an amount equal to loose pocket change, you will find yourself with a large portion of pad thai, of better quality than many of the restaurants have to offer. Luckily, the ingredients for pad thai are easily found at any grocery store, so you can make it at home. Just imagine you are eating it on a white sand beach!

On a side note, many pad thai dishes contain fish sauce, which of course is not vegan. I have found that most street vendors don't add it to their pad thai, though restaurants will. In it's place, I have used tamari in this recipe.
