Drunken Noodles (vegan| gluten-free)

Now I’m not quite sure whether a drunk man came home one day to his Thailand abode with the munchies, had no idea what to make and shoved the entire contents of his cupboards and fridge into a pan and fried the shit out of them or if there was ever a recipe adapted to contain alcohol (because apparently the original one features no alcohol whatsoever), but either way, a few drunken affairs happened along the way.

I guess nobody knows nor will ever know what actually happened on the day of this invention, but it was definitely a good one.

The dish itself is a mix of intensely flavoursome sauces fried as quickly as possible with some protein bits and bobs and of course, noodles. I used rice noodles- no particular reason other than that’s just what I was in the mood for.
