Pad Thai is all about the NOODLES and in the grain-free world we can get pretty creative with noodle options. This recipe uses my NEW favorite noodle discovery, KOHLRABI LINGUINE, prepped by my friends at Mann’s Fresh Vegetables, AKA Veggies Made Easy.

What is Kohlrabi?

This gremlin looking root vegetable is kohlrabi. It’s white inside, and it feels starchy, but it’s actually very carb. These noodles kept their bite… NO SOGGY NOODLES. Bonus they don’t taste a lot like veggies. Ha! I know that sounds like I hate veggies and you know that’s not the case, but really, their mild flavor doesn’t take over the dish. I am so freaking excited about these.

  • Once you’ve got your noodles, scrounge up whatever veggies you like. Make the sauce and get to stir-frying! Pro-tip… use a BIG skillet folks! You will need the space for all the tossing.
  • Another pro-tip… if you want to be extra lazy and skip cutting the carrots and cabbage, just buy a bag of shredded veggies or coleslaw! Boom. Just saved you 5 minutes and a lot of clean up.
  • Add in the sauce and protein and you’re set!

This low carb, veggie-packed Pad Thai takes minutes to make, in one skillet! It’s allergen-friendly, delicious and tastes like the real thing!

  • Author: Cristina
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup shredded purple cabbage
1 cup matchstick carrots (optional)
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoons salt
1 bag Mann’s Kohlrabi Linguine
4 green onion, sliced
1 cup bean sprouts (optional)

¼ cup coconut aminos
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoon unsweetened sunflower seed butter

3 eggs, scrambled
2 cups shredded chicken breast (optional)

Lime wedges
Fresh basil or cilantro


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the coconut oil then the cabbage and carrots and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Move to one side of the skillet, add the garlic and cook until aromatic, then mix it up with the remaining veggies.

Add the salt and the Mann’s Kohlrabi Linguine and green onion, sauté for 5-8 minutes until tender, add in a little more coconut oil if needed.

In the meantime, heat the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pot, stirring until smooth. Bring to a simmer then pour it into the noodle mix and toss.

Remove the noodles from the heat. In the small skillet where you made the sauce scramble the eggs if you are using and cook until done then mix into the noodles. Now would be the time to add the shredded chicken breast too! Mix and garnish with lime wedge and fresh basil or minced cilantro. Enjoy!

  1. This recipe came out unbelievably well! I couldn’t find kolrabi noodles, but in an instagram live, Cristina suggested using zoodles. I’m also allergic to sunflowers, so I switched out almond butter for the sunbutter. I’ve spent time in thailand, so I am a thai food snob, and I have to say the flavor profile is on point. I can’t believe I did it myself 🙂 Thank you cristina. Love your recipes and can’t wait to get your book!!

  2. Girl, you are always killing me with your amazing keto dishes! I’m devastated that we don’t get kohlrabi linguine in the UK. gonna be going on the hunt to make my own now <3

  3. Whoa what a cool product! I love that there are so many grain free options coming out these days and I can’t wait to try those out.

  4. I haven’t tried kohlrabi noodles yet. But they look so good. Thanks for turning me onto them. And your pad thai looks legit! YUM!!

  5. Wow! I have got to get my hands on some of those noddles, so cool! And this looks amazing!!! Pad Thai is my favorite, your version sounds so good!

    1. Hi Darryl! If you can find kohlrabi at the market you can spiralize it and make your own noodles. Any veggie noodle would work really 🙂
