Easy Vegan Recipe I Can't Stop Eating: Raw Vegan Pad Thai Sauce and Noodles

I love this recipe because in minutes I can stuff my face with pad thai noodles that are fat free and alarmingly delicious. I like to try different things every time, adding more or less purple cabbage, bell pepper, and whatever else is in the fridge. It might be blasphemy to "real" pad thai but it's a great way to use up extra produce in the fridge:

Recipe for Vegan Pad Thai Goodness:

- 2 Spiralized Zucchini or 1 Pack of Kelp Noodles*
- 1/4 Cup of Raw Nuts, soaked for 2 hours or more (I prefer walnuts, cashews, or almonds)
- 1-2 tablespoons of tamari (or soy sauce or bragg's liquid aminos)
- 1-4 teaspoons of sesame oil to taste
- 1/2 cup julliened purple cabbage
- 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
- Lime (optional)
- I like to top with pine nuts when I have 'em around (optional)

*I spiralize my zucchini into noodles with this spiralizer. You can also peel your zucchini over and over again with a veggie peeler to make fat fettuccine style noodles.

I mix all the ingredients but the noodles, cabbage, and red pepper in my vitamix blender to make the pad thai sauce, then pour it over my noodles, cabbage, and red bell pepper in a big bowl and toss. You can garnish or serve with squeezed lime. Damn this looks good, might have to get this together for lunch!

What's your go-to clean out the fridge recipe? This one's one of my favorites, it's impossible to mess it up!

  1. Looks yummy, but where can I buy kelp noodles?

    1. I buy them from grassroots and Native Sun locally, they're carried at whole foods as well. You can order them online here:

  3. huh, we love our pad thai but never tried this version. i'll show my boyfriend the recipe (he is the pad thai chef in this house :) and will give it a try! i love that you share your fave vegan chow, it's great inspiration!

    1. Glad it helps, let me know how you guys like this one! It's a lower fat/salt take on most raw vegan versions of pad thai.

  4. I'm no longer sure where you are getting your info, but great topic.
    I must spend some time learning much more or working out more.
