What makes this recipe so low-calorie is that it uses kelp noodles (6 calories for 4 ounces!) in place of rice noodles. Look for them in your grocery store's natural foods section. They can be eaten raw, but I prefer them a little bit cooked, as in this recipe. Traditionally pad thai is light on the vegetables- in this version, I add a healthy amount of broccoli to improve nutrition and add bulk. This recipe makes a large helping for one person, and will keep you full for a long time! It's as good as restaurant pad thai, while being much lower carb and containing a fraction of the calories, and best of all it's easy and quick.

I put this in the "fish" category because of the fish sauce, but it is otherwise vegetarian. If you'd like, substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce. It's not quite the same, but it's about the same level of saltiness. Almost all of the sodium in this recipe comes from the fish sauce- if that's a concern, substitute low-sodium soy sauce.

To further reduce carbohydrates, replace the chili sauce with half a teaspoon of chili powder. This eliminates about ten calories, as well. You may need to add a little more lemon or lime juice to replace the missing liquid.

For the Kelp Noodles check out Sea Tangle Brand. If you can't order them then use a mandoline slicer and cut long noodles out of zucchini squash.
