Low Carb Pad See Ew

Jump to Recipe

This dish is one of my favorites to get when I am ordering Thai take out! I love the caramelized noodles and the sweet and savory sauce! It is so good! When we lived in the city pre-kids, we would order Thai take out every Sunday! We would sit on the couch and watch TV and eat take out. It was so fun, but in my older years here, I can’t quite eat take out as often! That is why I love this dish.

I was inspired to make this when I found some fettuccini style shiritaki noodles at the store. Shiritaki noodles are noodles made from the fiber of the root of the konjac plant. They are high in fiber and very low in calories and carbs. I find them a little chewier than regular noodles, but I really like them in Asian dishes because Asian noodles tend to be a little chewy too!

This dish is packed with protein and this portion is huge. This will keep you full and the flavors are traditional so it is very satisfying. Feel free to use regular noodles too if you like. This dish is so much healthier than ordering out, even with regular noodles!

  • 2 cups fresh spinach

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 2 scallions, sliced, green and whites separated

  • 2 tsp Monk Fruit Golden Sweetener (I use Lankato brand, or brown sugar)

  • Combine dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar/sweetener, white vinegar, and water. Set aside.
  • In a medium/large pan over medium heat sesame oil until shimmering. Add chicken, garlic, and scallion whites until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a plate
  • Add broccoli to the same pan and saute until crisp tender, adding water if needed. Move to the plate with the chicken
  • Scramble eggs and add to hot skillet (sprayed with olive oil), cooking through. Move to the plate.
  • Drain and rinse noodles and add them to the hot pan with the sauce. Caramelize for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add chicken, broccoli, eggs and raw spinach back into the pan with the noodles.
  • Cook until spinach is wilted. Top with scallion greens and serve.
