    Probably the best post I’ve seen all month! I just got my miracle noodles at Walmart and I’m making a quick chicken version tonight!

        DELICIOUS!! Pad thai flavors were spot on! I also didn’t mind the shirataki noodles here, and I had hated them in carbonara! I guess pad thai noodles are on the chewy side anyways thnx!

      For Asian foods you generally want lime (the green one!). I’m pretty sure it’s always read lime?! Enjoy Kay! x

    This was outstanding. The noodles were unremarkable–just what I’m looking for in a dish like this–and the shrimp and flavors were perfect. Next time, I won’t forget the green onion at the store!

  3. Jean says:

    I’ve made this one a few times already with both chicken and shrimp and I must say that were it not for the shirataki it would taste EXACTLY like pad thai! Damn shirataki lol! But in all honesty thank you for this recipe, no longer crave takaway now!

    I started with a silly grin after the first bite and couldn’t help but smile until I was done eating the whole thing! THANK YOU for bringing Pad Thai back into my life!

    Delicious recipe, but I ended up with a stomach ache and discomfort due to the miracle noodles. I looked at the reviews of miracle noodles, and it might have been that I ate too many or it just doesn’t agree with me. Might be good for others to start with smaller portions to see if it agrees with them.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Rayan! Thank you so much about reporting back with this, I just did a quick google on the matter and it does say that if eaten in excess (and/or not chewed thoroughly or consumed with enough water) it can cause discomfort in some peeps. I’ll add a note to the post! xo! P

    I just made this with chicken and it was absolutely amazing!!!! I can’t believe I’m eating a low carb dish. It tastes just like the real thing!!! You are a star!! 🙂

    Made this twice already, it’s amazing! I love the texture of shirataki noodles and the sauce is so flavourful, I didn’t notice their flavour. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Paola says:

      So happy you enjoyed the pad Thai too Penny! And thanks so much for reporting back, appreciate it so very much! xo!

    Made this last night for hubby and I. He got some regular pasta in his and I just got more bean sprouts. He was very satisfied with his meal and asked me to make it again. Mine was absolutely delish even without any noodles. I cant find the noodles in the recipe so just settled for without. Still absolutely fabulous and I was totally satisfied.

    This was wonderful, I made this for my husband and I tonight and everything was magnífico! Thank you, your recipes are written so well and easy to follow for me. I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and already this is my 5th recipe of yours. Your photography is what got me here, but the amazing food keeps me coming back.

    Great recipe! Thought the sauce tasted gross on its own so I was concerned. But all mixed together, it totally worked and was delicious! Pretty darn close to the beloved carb-laden original. Will definitely make again.

    • Paola says:

      Lol yeah the sauce on it’s own has a very distinctive taste! So happy you enjoyed Vanessa than you!

    I made this tonight (with chicken and tofu-shirataki fettuccine noodles) and I could hardly even tell that it wasn’t the real thing. I can do keto forever with recipes like this.

    Hi Paola! I love your recipes. I wanted to add (as someone that uses Miracle Rice a lot), you can microwave the noodles in order to dry them out and to greatly reduce their odor. I drain them in a sieve, then microwave them for 2 minutes. Drain the water released and then microwave for another minute or two. They’re usually pretty dry and have almost no odor. I know some people are against using the microwave and obviously, this method would not be for them. But for others, like myself, it is very fast, easy, and effective. *the length of time might vary on different noodles* Also, I have a 1000W microwave – as an FYI.

    • Paola says:

      Kim this is an AWESOME tip thank you for sharing!! I actually don’t own a microwave (total hippy food blogger here lol!), but always SUPER helpful to readers 🙂 xo and have a lovely weekend!

  13. Donna says:

    Cannot WAIT to make this recipe…but…but…are peanuts paleo or keto compliant?! Not sure I can imagine Pad Thai without some kind of peanut…or at least some kind of crunchy nut factor!! Thank you for your endless ingenuity and creativity in devising all of this lusciousness.

    • Paola says:

      Lol! So happy to hear you’re enjoying the recipes Donna! Peanuts aren’t paleo because they’re a legume, but they’re lower in carbs than almonds so technically keto? There are different thoughts on this, I say go with what your own body says (for instance, they work great for me but cause immediate inflammation for my mom who has arthritis). Hope this helped xo!

  14. Donna says:

    OOPS…totally neglected to read your note with the almond sub!!! So sorry and should have realised you amazingly think of everything…and everyone’s particular eating lifestyle situations!

    I found this website looking for a pad thai recipe using konjac noodles. I made this recipe and it’s actually better than most pad thai I’ve eaten at thai restaurants. I added in some lemongrass and made mine with chicken, shrimp, and tofu. VERY good. I have since also tried another recipe from your blog – the super fudgey brownies and also my favorite brownie recipe! Thanks!

    • Paola says:

      Oh wow that’s wonderful to Hera Milovat! And I LOVE your addition of lemongrass! Also awesome to hear about the brownies, those are def top 5 favorites of mine too 😉 xo!

  16. Kim says:

    I’m in heaven and can’t believe this is low carb!! I’m not going to lie though – when I opened that pack of noodles and caught a whiff, I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out!! My fiancee walked in and wanted to know where the “dead fish” smell was coming from hahaha!!!
    But this really is delicious!! Thank you!!

    • Paola says:

      Oh lol Kim definite yes on the noodles the first time around, I was like whaaaaaat…..?! The rice version can be pretty awesome too! So happy you enjoyed the recipe though, and thanks for reporting back again! xo
