Vegan Pad Thai is a popular dish that originates from Thailand, and is made with stir-fried rice noodles, vegetables, and a variety of seasonings and spices. Although traditionally not vegan, this recipe doesn't use any animal-based ingredients, such as meat or fish sauce, and replaces them with plant-based alternatives.

It's a delicious and nutritious meal that is easy to make at home. It is a great option for those following a plant-based diet or looking for a flavorful and healthy dish!


  • 1 14-oz. package rice noodles
  • 3 T. toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 lb. broccoli florets, divided
  • 8 oz. white mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/3 c. soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • ½ c. peanut butter
  • 1-2 T. Sriracha sauce
  • Hot water, if needed



Prepare rice noodles according to package directions and set aside.


Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan or wok. Add vegetables and cook, stirring continually, for approximately 5-6 minutes, or until crisp tender. Remove from heat and set aside.


In a medium bowl, whisk soy sauce, peanut butter, Sriracha and remaining sesame oil together until smooth. If the sauce is too thick, add a small amount of hot water to reach the desired consistency.


Stir half the sauce into the noodles and half into the vegetables, and then toss everything together to combine. Serve immediately and enjoy!
