I love pad Thai. It’s one of my favorite Thai dishes. Unfortunately, it’s usually made with vegetable oils, sugar and MSG, or as I like to call it, a cancer cocktail. This is one of the recipes from Ditch The Diet. Like I say in the program, you could make this recipe using rice noodles to make it more authentic, or even zucchini noodles (because DTD is customizable! you can sign up for my newsletter for more info on the program) but I really love kelp noodles and was totally craving them. This recipe came out so well, creamy, spicy, garlicky and awesome.

 Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients up to but not including the kelp noodles until smooth.
  2. Saute the sliced onion and carrot in coconut oil until very tender. Add the garlic.
  3. Whish the two eggs and add them to the onions and carrots. Cook until set.
  4. Add the noodles and sauce. Stir to combine.
  5. Optional: top with chopped cashews and cilantro.

SO tasty!

    I agree with Stacy, where’s the Tamarind sauce? Otherwise looks fantastic. Also thanks for posting, I hadn’t heard of kelp noodles before. Can’t wait to try them!

    Asian bean thread noodles (also called clear noodles or cellophane noodles) are even closer in taste and texture. You cannot tell the difference. They are wonderful. Put in a pot of boiling water, turn heat off. Let sit for about 5 mins till totally clear. Drain well and toss with whatever sauce. Taste them, if they need to soften a bit more, heat the whole thing in the pan for a min or two. Done.

    Tamarind sauce is not what makes it pad Thai. But that’s my opinion. I make this and love it but I use zucchini for the noodles.

      Thanks! I wish I could eat zucchini, that sounds delicious. For some reason it gives me the worst stomach cramps.
