Pad See Ew

Nicole Kearsley
Mmmm this popular Thai street food means noodles fried in soy sauce. Traditionally made with Sen Yai which are wide, thin rice noodles that are not that easy to come by. So use dried rice noodles instead - I've eaten enough Pad See Ew at Thai restaurants to assure you that there is no compromise on flavor!

Servings 3


  • 1/2 bag Soy Curls 4oz
  • 7 ounces Wide Rice Stick Noodles
  • 1 tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Vegan Oyster Flavored Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vegan Fishless Sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Soy Sauce tamari
  • 2 teaspoon Rice Vinegar mirin
  • 2 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup Justegg
  • 6 Stems Chinese Broccoli(gai lan) trimmed and stems separated from leaves, cut in 1" pieces


  • In a bowl, soak soy curls in nearly boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry. I use my salad spinner to remove the liquid from them.
  • Cook noodles according to packet directions, drain and rinse in cold water.  Set aside.
  • Prepare the sauce by combining soy sauces, oyster flavored sauce, fishless sauce, vinegar, sugar, and water. Mix well to dissolve sugar.
  • In a large skillet/wok over high heat add 1 Tbsp of oil. Add garlic, cook 15 seconds. Add soy curls and stirfry until slightly browned approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Add Chinese broccoli stems and continue to stirfry another 3 to 4 minutes; adding 1-2 Tbsp water then covering to steam veggies for 1 minute. Remove cover and add broccoli leaves, stirfry until just wilted approximately 2 minutes. Lower heat to medium. Push everything to sides of skillet, add JUSTEGG and scramble. Once the JUSTEGG is cooked combine mixture and remove from skillet. Wipe skillet clean.
  • Return skillet to high heat with 2 Tbsp oil. Add noodles, toss then add sauce to coat noodles. Continue to cook Noodles and sauce until sauce begins to caramelize onto noodles, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Return soy curl and vegetable mixture to skillet and toss to combine. Serve immediately.


MAIN INGREDIENTS: I bought extra wide rice noodles and both vegan oyster and fishless sauce at your local Asian market but all 3 can be found on Amazon.
*DARK SOR SAUCE: This recipe calls for dark soy sauce, which stains the noodles, but regular soy sauce can be used.
**NOODLES: Other noodles can be made with other noodles, fresh or dried. However, I do not recommend using vermicelli as it is too thin for the strong flavours of the sauce.
***SERVING: This recipe yields 25 grams of protein for each serving.
