Paleo pad thai with kelp nudels

November 27, 2014

I made this delicious recipe yesterday. Delicious! I’ve been a little skeptical to kelp nudels but these were great.

I added the kelp nudels to the pot with veggies and pad thai sauce and let them cook for a while to my surprise they started softening after a few minutes, which I did not think they would..

I exchanged carrots in the recipe for sliced red bell pepper and next time I will add a little sated mushrooms as well. I also added loads of bean sprouts that I let cook from the start to make them soft and add to the nudel texture of the dish. I think the thing that had the most impact on the success of the dish was that the sauce was pretty sticky and I will try to mix the nudels with cream sauces in the future as well. (Such as flavored creme fraiche or mascarpone + parmesan(?!) etc. when serving with a bolognese or tomato based dish.

1-2 Tbsp butter 1 dl almond milk 1 Tbsp coconut flour 2 eggs 1 Tbsp flax seed flour 1/3 Tbsp psyllium seed flour 1/2 dl whey protein powder Mix on the stove until it really starts to thicken, first it will become viscous from the flax but then when the protein/egg bakes the porridge becomes more solid! Serve with cinnamon, xylitol (or erythritol) and almond milk mixed with some double cream.

Transfer the dough into a baking paper covered baking tray, spread out 1.5 to 2 cm thick and cover with puppy seeds. Bake in the middle of the oven for 10-15 min.

Nice to toast!
