The dish includes all sorts of good-for-you goodies like fresh ginger, raw almond butter, maple syrup, carrots, cabbage, red bell pepper, apple cider vinegar and something we have never tried before…kelp noodles!
I searched everywhere for these clear alien noodles and finally found some at Rainbow Grocery. On their own, the noodles don’t taste like much.
When they were mixed in with the raw sauce and all the veggies however, it was like a flavor bomb went off in my mouth! This dish excellently captured that yummy sweet and slightly sour essence of Pad Thai and was so fresh (right down to the homemade almond butter) and easy to put together.
For dessert, we kept in the raw spirit and had some chocolate chia pudding that we made from the fabulous Fresh Young Coconut. Chia seeds soak up liquids they sit in and if the right liquid to chia seed ratio is used, the result is a pudding- like texture with the slightest crunch from the seeds themselves. This pudding was all sorts of chocolatey-coconutty yum!
We sprinkled ours with some cacao nibs and topped it with fresh raspberries.
After rawmazing meals like this, I always feel “so fresh and so clean clean”.
