Paleo Pad See Ew
Here’s the final dish to complete the series of Thai Takeout Foods!! Check out the recipes for Tom Kha Gai Soup, Yellow Curry with Prawns, and Dairy-Free Thai Iced Tea to put together the perfect Paleo Thai Night!
This is my husband’s favorite dish to order when we’re out for Thai food. Pad See Ew is a dish that is comprised mostly of wide, flat rice noodles in a light brown sauce with broccoli, carrots, and a scrambled egg. It’s almost like a Chinese fried rice, but with noodles. I recreated the noodles by using a vegetable peeler to make very thin ribbons of carrots and then sauteing them with the other ingredients until they were soft and flavorful. I actually prefer this now to the heaviness of the noodles!
- 6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- 1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless
- 2 tablespoons oil (I prefer olive oil for the taste with this dish, but coconut will work too)
- 3 cups broccoli rabe florets and leaves (or chinese broccoli)
- 10 carrots, peeled
- ⅓ cup coconut aminos (the verdict is still out on whether this is SCD legal, so use with caution if you’re SCD)
- 1 & ½ tablespoons coconut sugar (sub honey for SCD)
- 2 eggs
- Lay your peeled carrots flat on a cutting board and use a Y-peeler to create very thin but wide ribbons. A regular vegetable peeler will work too, a Y-peeler is just easier to use when the carrot is flat. You basically just continue peeling the carrot after you’ve removed the outer dirty skin.
- Slice the chicken very thinly on a diagonal. Warm the oil in a deep saute pan or wok over medium heat, then add the garlic and chicken and saute for 5 minutes until the chicken is white on the outside.
- Add the broccoli, coconut aminos, and coconut sugar, and continue cooking for 5 minutes until the broccoli has softened a bit. Add the carrot ribbons and cook for 5 more minutes.
- Push the stir-fry aside in the pan, then crack the 2 eggs into the pan and stir vigorously to scramble them. Let them cook for a minute or so until they have firmed up, then mix everything back together.
