Pad See-Ew – Fried Flat Rice Noodles

IMG_4876

So quick and easy to make!

This is one of my favourite dishes as it’s super easy to make and I get a whackload of kale in one meal. According to WebMD, 1 cup of kale has just 33 calories but:

  • Nearly 3 grams of protein
  • 2.5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full)
  • Vitamins A, C, and K
  • Folate, a B vitamin that’s key for brain development
  • Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. (While kale has far less omega-3 than fish, it is another way to get some of this healthy fat into your diet.
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts
  • Minerals including phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and zinc

    I’ve also used brown rice linguine for this and it works well!

Serves 2

Right, let’s get to the recipe! For this super quick dinner or side dish, you will need:

  • 200 grams wide, flat rice noodles (sen yai). Fresh or dried is ok, but if you’re using the dried kind you need to soak them first
  • handful medium firm tofu or handful of prawns
  • 1 cup kale cut into 1/2 inch sections – use the stalks and leaves! Broccoli and rapini work well for this recipe too!
  • 1 egg tbsp garlic
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster or fish sauce
  • 2 tsp palm sugar
  • 2 tsp apple cidar vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • red chili if desired

Get your ingredients ready and your wok warmed up. This is a quick dish!

Don’t be an idiot like me and add the kale too soon!

 

  1. Heat the oil over medium heat
  2. Add the garlic and tofu or prawns. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Then add the egg and cook, then the noodles. Stir it all together.
  4. Add the kale and all the seasonings. Stir again for another 2 minutes.
  5. Serve with red chili powder and a slice of lime.
