This recipe is a vegetarian version of Pad Thai, Thailand’s most famous dish. It’s so flavorful. Even without the most important ingredient, fish sauce, you will still taste the tanginess and sweetness that is needed for Pad Thai. Moreover, adding mushrooms will give a meaty texture to this vegetarian Pad Thai!
