Pad See Ew Recipe

Pad See Ew, you say?!

Have you ever had the pleasure of eating this tasty Thai dish before?  If you have been on a strictly gluten-free diet for a while, chances are you have not had the chance to experience this delightful dinner recipe.

Here in Austin, TX we are fortunate enough to have many restaurants that cater to gluten-free and other allergen-free diets.  One restaurant holds a special place in my heart…. Thai Fresh.  A large portion of their menu is gluten-free (including their pad see ew!), allowing us gluten free-ers to enjoy delightful Thai cuisine along with our dinner mates.

If you ever happen to visit Austin and want a quick bite to eat, check them out!  They also have a large selection of ice cream that is made with coconut milk instead of regular milk.  (Cohl and I LOVE this!!  No tummy aches or sneezing for us!)  And their Pad See Ew recipe is incredible!

What is Pad See Ew?

Typically, Pad See Ew is a Thai stir fry dish composed of wide, flat rice noodles, a slightly sweet soy sauce-based sauce, and Chinese broccoli.  It is normally served with pork, but chicken or any other protein may be substituted.

How to Make Pad See Ew?

As mentioned above, this pad see ew recipe starts off with a base of flat rice noodles and a sweet soy sauce.

Wanting to add a bit more color, and nutrition, I decided to throw in some carrots and bell peppers into the pad see ew recipe.

Also, instead of using the sometimes-hard-to-find Chinese broccoli, I substituted regular broccoli instead.  Feel free to use regular broccoli, broccoli rabe, or even Chinese broccoli.

  1. Hi London!
    Is there a particular type of chicken that works best for this dish (breast, thigh, etc)? Thank you!

    1. Hi Kristin! Yes, great question! I use chicken breasts for this recipe, but chicken thighs would work great, too! I’ll be sure to update the recipe to reflect this.

    1. Of course! I have used “A Taste of Thai” wide rice noodles as well as a few other brands my local grocery store carries in the Thai food section. 🙂
