GF Vegan Pad Woon Sen (Thai Stir Fried Glass Noodles)

February 18, 2020
Thailand is one of the top destinations on my bucket list. Until I get the chance to visit, I just enjoy Thai food. I love meals like this that are delicious and speedy to make, not to mention cheap! Sometimes I even wonder why I spend so much money at restaurants for one plate when I can feed a whole family for less than the price of one dish. This homemade pad woon sen is also healthier, less greasy and salty, and can be so much fun when done together.
