Raw Vegan Pad Thai

Raw Vegan Pad Thai

I’ve been on the path to eating more of a raw vegan diet, or a lifestyle I should say. It has definitely not been an everyday lifestyle but I am making my way in that direction. The more I eat raw foods the better I feel throughout those days. I become happier, I have more patience with my boys and I feel lighter but still satisfied with my meals. I  feel good after I eat I don’t get bloated. Recently, when I eat sandwiches, quinoa or rice I end up feeling like shit and looking like I’m 6 months pregnant again. Which I’m NOT!  So I know I have to do something about that. My body is letting me know the changes I’ve made were the right ones and to continue eating raw which is obviously a better option, for me!

Everyone’s body reacts differently and this is what is helping me feel better. This raw noodle mixture of vegetables is similar to what I have been eating as my go to for lunch or dinners especially on those busy days or nights when I want to stay eating raw foods. To switch it up all I really do is switch the dressing or sauce that I top it with. It’s so simple and no need to prepare and cook for hours.


For the Peanut Sauce

Start this recipe by making the peanut sauce first. In a high speed blender add the natural peanut butter, lime juice, spring water, maple syrup, liquid aminos, ground ginger and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or more if desired. Add to your liking.

Blend the mixture until all ingredients are well incorporated and uniform in color. The the consistency should be smooth and creamy. You can either transfer to another container or just set the jar used with your blender aside until ready to combine with the rest of this dish.

 

For the Vegetables 

Next, add the zucchini noodles, shredded carrots, sliced red onions, sliced red bell peppers and sliced jalapeños to a bowl or plate. Toss the vegetables to distribute evenly throughout.

Then transfer about 3 tablespoons {or more as needed} of the peanut sauce over the prepared vegetables. Top with fresh Cilantro, chopped  green onions and sesame seeds to garnish. You could also serve with a lime wedge and squeeze the lime juice overtop. When ready to eat just toss everything together to evenly coat.
