Gluten-Free Pad Thai with Goldbaum Brown Rice Fettuccine Noodles

I received a very nice package from Goldbaum’s. In it was all sorts of great things, including a package of brown rice fettuccine. You know what what rice fettuccine is like? Pad Thai noodles!

The timing was perfect as well. My husband had a long standing tradition with his college roommate: Asian food Sunday. I say Asian food, because sometimes it was Thai, sometimes Vietnamese cuisine. This was a tradition that we continued after we got married. Recently we started eating out at Thai restaurants, until we realized that most of the dishes I liked (like Pad Thai) were made with soy sauce. Most restaurants use traditional Kikkoman Soy Sauce, which has wheat in it. So we began a tradition of making Pad Thai at home, often on Sundays. We liked using the Taste of Thai line of products because they clearly state gluten-free on the label! Our Kroger stopped carrying it though. Therefore, we’ve switched to using Thai Kitchen, which is also labeled gluten-free.

If you’ve never had Pad Thai before or have never tried to make it on your own, there is a very easy to follow version on the back of the Pad Thai jar. We’ve been known to make a few alterations from time to time. Sometimes bean sprouts can be tricky to find. In those cases we’ve used thin cut cucumbers or broccoli slaw mix. I’ve even used sauteed green beans! Sometimes I’ll add an extra bit of Asian chili sauce. Sometimes I’ve forgotten to purchase green onions, and I’ll just saute some regular onions up with the dish. And if you’re not a meat eater, you could easily make this vegetarian and substitute tofu. (I like prepping tofu like this.) Basically, what makes Pad Thai is the sauce and flat noodles. From there I think you can play around a bit.

Goldbaum's Gluten-Free Pad Thai


We preferred using the Goldbaum’s pasta for our Pad Thai than the traditional noodles. They have more nutrition since they’re made from brown rice. They also lend their own flavor, which adds depth to the dish. Goldbaum’s Brown Rice Fettuccine does cook differently than traditional Pad Thai noodles. Pad Thai noodles traditionally just soak in hot water. Goldbaum Brown Rice Fettuccine boils for three minutes and then rests in the hot water for 10-15 minutes. Just make sure to make them in a large enough pot so that the noodles don’t get stuck together.

Here’s the recipe for Pad Thai that we used, which is on the Thai Kitchen Pad Thai sauce jar and on Beyond Celiac’s website.

  1. I make my own Pad Thai too, I love the stuff, made it for years. It really helps fill out a gluten-free and lactose-free diet. Personally I like beef in mine, I know, it’s red meat, but I’m a guy, I have a taste for it. Also wanted to mention my favorite kind of Pad Thai sauce, Passage to India – it is carried at Horrock’s market, and possibly some Meijer or Kroger’s stores, sold in a purple pouch. So delicious. If you make it with rice noodles be sure to rinse or soak the noodles in cold water before you add them back in the fry pan, otherwise the noodles will fall apart.

    1. Dear Daughtery,
      So glad I’ve found a fellow Pad Thai fanatic! I don’t know that I’ve ever tried it with beef. I was first introduced to it as a chicken dish, and I tend to stick with my first love. Speaking of love, I ADORE Horrock’s. I grew up in Lansing and miss it so much! I’ve never put the noodles in cold water, but then again have never had a trouble with them falling apart. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I LOVE pad thai! But I was late to that party and have only had it at 2 or 3 places. A place in New Hudson is my favorite, so far. And we moved away from that one 3 yrs ago. We are in a “asian” food Sahara and even fewer include thai. So I’m ready to try my hand! Thx for this!
