Recipe Index: Paleo Pad See Ew

There are times when moving towards a Paleo diet is just so delicious that I don't miss any of the things I used to eat. 

Admittedly I fall off the wagon regularly, but I am always trying to pick myself up, dust myself off and start over again. Trying to improve each time. 

This Paleo Pad See Ew from Against All Grain is just gorgeous. It doesn't feel like you are substituting or altering your lifestyle in any way. I would happily eat this over chinese takeaway, which is saying a lot! 

Paleo Pad See Ew:


6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless
2 tablespoons oil (I prefer olive oil for the taste with this dish, but coconut will work too)
3 cups broccoli rabe florets and leaves (or chinese broccoli)
10 carrots, peeled
⅓ cup coconut aminos (the verdict is still out on whether this is SCD legal, so use with caution if you’re SCD)
1 & ½ tablespoons coconut sugar (substitute this with honey for SCD)
2 eggs


Lay your peeled carrots flat on a cutting board and use a Y-peeler to create very thin but wide ribbons. A regular vegetable peeler will work too, a Y-peeler is just easier to use when the carrot is flat. Your basically just continue peeling the carrot after you’ve removed the outer dirty skin.

Slice the chicken very thinly on a diagonal. Warm the oil in a deep saute pan or wok over medium heat, then add the garlic and chicken and saute for 5 minutes until the chicken is white on the outside.

Add the broccoli, coconut aminos, and coconut sugar, and continue cooking for 5 minutes until the broccoli has softened a bit. Add the carrot ribbons and cook for 5 more minutes.

Push the stir-fry aside in the pan, then crack the 2 eggs into the pan and stir vigorously to scramble them. Let them cook for a minute or so until they have firmed up, then mix everything back together.
