Pad Thai (or any type of noodle!) is definitely a comfort food for me. You can do so many things with noodles. I grew up eating Italian and Mediterranean foods, but it wasn’t until recent years when I started experimenting with making more Asian cuisine! This recipe for low fodmap chicken pad thai is an easy recipe to make your debut in making copy cat thai food at home.
Asian cuisine can offer a lot of gluten-free, dairy-free and low fodmap choices when you are going out to eat. However, some sauces can be a little tricky to navigate. Sometimes it may be safer to make a meal you crave at home to make sure that it stays low fodmap!
Paying attention to the measurements for broccoli, red pepper , and green onion will be important to keep this recipe low fodmap! If you want more asian food recipes that are also low fodmap, try these Salmon Avocado Lettuce Wraps next!
What if I Don’t Have a Wok?
The advantage to using a wok is that it distributes heat more evenly and requires less oil. If you don’t have a wok at home, you can get the same effect by using a wide, flat pan. Your goal is to give your food as much contact with the heat as possible. A sauté pan is good substitute for a wok, and is something most people have stocked in their kitchens!
