Vegan Pad Thai

Raw Vegan Pad Thai
 2 Green Zucchinis
 1 Yellow Squash
 1 Medium Carrot
 1 Red Bell Pepper
 ½ cup Red Cabbage, shredded (35g)
 ½ cup Mung Bean Sprouts (50g)
 2 Green Onions, sliced
 2 tbsp Fresh Cilantro, chopped
 2 tbsp Cashews
 1 Lime, cut into wedges
Spicy Peanut Sauce
 2 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
 2 tbsp Lime or Lemon Juice
 2 tsp Ginger, grated
 2 Garlic Cloves
 3 Dates, pitted
 ½ tsp Cayenne or Red Chili Flakes
 ½ cup Water (120ml)
Optional Toppings:
 Edamame Beans
 Baked Tempeh
 Tofu, baked or sautéed in Soy Sauce

Add all ingredients for the sauce into a blender jar and blend until smooth. Adjust to taste, then put aside.


Make the vegetable noodles by spiralizing the zucchini, squash and carrots, then slice your bell pepper and red cabbage.


Add all the veggies for your pad Thai salad into a large bowl and drizzle with your spicy peanut sauce. Mix well, then top with green onion, fresh cilantro, cashews and lime.


Transfer into serving bowls and add any additional toppings of choice if you want a higher protein or calorie meal. Enjoy!


Wait to drown your raw pad Thai in peanut sauce until you’re ready to serve to prevent soggy vegetables.


Store the raw veggies separate from the dressing if you have any leftovers or want to use this recipe for meal prep; the spiralized noodles keep well for 3 days, the peanut butter sauce for one week in the fridge.


Have some kelp noodles on hand? Throw them in your raw pad Thai, they are a great addition!
