Keto Thai Food

There are a few flavors that set Thai food apart from other cultures. For one thing, it’s made with fresh, whole ingredients that they usually buy at the markets. It’s also usually pretty spicy too.

One of my favorite Thai meals is pad Thai. There is nothing quite like that creamy, spicy sauce all over the noodles and chicken.

Best Keto Pad Thai

I love Pad Thai so much that I knew I had to figure out how to make it keto-friendly. That is when I discovered Shirataki noodles and sugar-free honey substitute. Talk about a game-changer. Peanuts, veggies, and chicken are already low-carb. What was holding me back was how to make the noodles keto-friendly and how to make a sticky sauce without honey.

Keto Thai Noodles

Shirataki noodles come in a can. They have a wonderful texture and are also called “Miracle noodles.” They are made from the fiber of the konjac plant. Once you discover these noodles, it opens up a world of possibilities in your keto diet.

By themselves, these noodles don’t have a ton of flavor. Just like any variety of pasta, it’s the sauce that makes the recipe.

Low Carb Pad Thai Sauce

I wanted my sauce to be salty, hearty, sticky, and have the classic flavor that I’ve grown to love from Thai restaurants. To do this, I used the following ingredients:

  • Soy Sauce
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Lime Juice
  • Garlic Chili Sauce
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sugar-Free Honey
  • Chopped Peanuts

Don’t forget the garlic chili sauce and the chopped peanuts. This is what makes it taste so authentic! The peanuts give it that classic crunch and the garlic chili sauce brings the heat that you know and love.

How To Customize Keto Chicken Pad Thai

This is a really easy recipe that you can customize to fit your tastes. If you want it to be spicier, just sprinkle in some red pepper flakes. If you want it to have a stronger peanut flavor, add a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter.

You can also change the meat you use. Instead of chicken, make it with beef, tofu, or even some shrimp.

Leave Out The Eggs

If you are allergic to eggs, just leave them out. They add a stir-fry texture to the dish, but it tastes just as delicious without them.

Make-Ahead and Store Pad Thai

This is another recipe that is perfect for meal prep. Bust out of your lunch-time boredom with something that is savory and tastes like takeout. When you store it in your refrigerator, keep it in a sealed container. It will stay fresh in the fridge for up to a week.

This does not freeze well. If you want to speed up the cooking time, use rotisserie or canned chicken.
