Easy Paleo Pad Thai

|Easy Paleo Pad Thai

Last time I showed you how to prepare shirataki noodles so they have the best texture and taste great. After sharing my Prawn & Noodle Stir-Fry, it's time for another delicious recipe. This recipe is both keto and paleo friendly and is ready in less than 30 minutes. It's definitely one of the all-time favourites in my house!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

Sauce:
Stir-fry:
  • 500 g chicken thighs, boneless and skinless (17.6 oz)
  • 1-2 packets shirataki noodles, drained - depends on the brand (400 g / 17.6 oz)
  • 4 large eggs, free-range or organic
  • 2 medium spring onions (30 g / 1.1 oz)
  • 2 cups bean sprouts (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds, toasted (15 g / 0.5 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice (~ ½ lime) + more for garnish
  • 1 tbsp + ¼ cup ghee or extra virgin coconut oil (you can make your own ghee) ( 55 g / 2 oz)
  • Optional: 2 cups red cabbage, shredded for garnish (140 g / 4.9 oz) + 1.8 g net carbs per serving

When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives). The reason I'm using both Erythritol and stevia is to mask the aftertaste some of the sweeteners may have.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the shirataki noodles by following the steps in this post (wash & boil to eliminate their natural odour & pan-fry to get the best texture). When done, keep in a bowl and set aside. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients to make the sauce: fish sauce, coconut aminos, Sriracha, crushed garlic, Almond & Cashew Butter, salt pepper,...

  3. ... Erythritol and stevia (if used). When done, set aside. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  4. Meanwhile, cut the chicken thighs into 1-inch pieces. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  5. Place in a large pan greased with ¼ cup ghee and cook over a medium-high heat until pale and cooked through. Mix a few times to ensure even cooking. When done, set aside. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the omelets. Heat a pan greased with ½ tablespoon of ghee. Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and season with salt.
    I used a well-seasoned cast iron skillet both for the chicken and the omelet. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  7. Whisk well and pour in the hot pan and swirl to coat the surface to make a very thin omelet. Cook over a medium-high heat for a couple of minutes or until firm on top. Using a spatula, flip on the other side and cook for another 30 seconds. When done, transfer on a plate. Then, repeat for the remaining 2 eggs. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  8. Set aside to cool down, roll up and cut into thin strips. Slice the spring onion and place in a bowl filled with water to clean. Transfer on a paper towel and pat dry. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  9. Place the chicken back on the heat and add the spring onion. Cook over a medium-high heat for just a couple of minutes. Then, add the omelet strips and bean sprouts and cook for another minute while stirring. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  10. Add the sauce (see above) and prepared shirataki noodles. Cook briefly until heated through and take off the heat. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  11. Mix well and add the fresh cilantro, ... |Easy Paleo Pad Thai
  12. ... lime juice and toasted almonds.
    To toast the almond flakes, place them on a dry hot pan and cook over a medium-high heat until fragrant for 1-2 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent burning. |Easy Paleo Pad Thai Garnish with shredded red cabbage, lime wedges, cilantro and enjoy! :-) |Easy Paleo Pad Thai

Allergic to Almond & Cashew Butter, is there an alternative?

Hi Safaa, if you are allergic to nuts, try coconut butter or sunflower butter. Hope this helps!

On a strict keto diet are you allowed shirataki noodles? Looks so good!

Thank you Amaya! Yes, they are great for a keto diet so unless you follow a "zero-carb" approach, shirataki noodles are on the list Smile
