Paleo Chow Mein

This is the perfect recipe if you’re looking for something healthy, quick, and delicious! So grab your chopsticks and dive into these Paleo Noodles.

Chow mein is one of my favorite dishes. I love ordering it out and I became so addicted in high school, that I decided to just learn how to make it at home. Thick noodles are a must and the secret to my chow mein is using medium sweet soy sauce. If you don’t know about this gem, you’re missing out. But anyways, this is a healthier version. It’s still so tasty when the craving hits but I don’t want to feel too sluggish after.

Feel free to alter the recipe as much as you’d like. You can add some stir fry veggies in there like mushrooms and snow peas. I also like to top it off with grilled chicken but tofu would also be something I’d go for. This would also be amazing with zucchini noodles but I prefer carrot because they’re thicker and have less water content.

Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you’d like to see the not so healthy recipe for chow mein that’s a family favorite.


12 oz carrot noodles
1/2 cup coconut aminos
1/4 cup creamy almond butter
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped scallions
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
optional: sriracha


In a small bowl, add coconut aminos, almond butter, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, ginger, garlic, onion powder, black pepper, chili flakes, salt, scallions, and sesame seeds.
Whisk just until everything comes all together.
In a large pot or wok, add carrot noodles over medium heat. Pour the sauce over and mix until all the noodles are evenly coated. Allow to cook for 6-8 minutes or just until the noodles are tender and soft.
Once the noodles are cooked through, turn off the heat. I then like to drizzle the other teaspoon of sesame oil now because I think the taste stands out more that way. If you like it spicy, add a drizzle of sriracha.
