This Raw Pad Thai Recipe will absolutely knock your socks off! Plus it has a vegan raw pad thai sauce that you’ll want to lick from the bowl. 🙂
The Bowlery, a veggie-based restaurant in Denton, Texas (my hometown 🙂 ), is my very favorite place to eat when I’m not in the mood to cook. (Yes, it happens to all of us.)
Everything on the menu is healthy, light, and guilt-free… 3 requirements for surviving the hot weather and active weekends which are suddenly upon us! Because spring has SPRUNG yall! Everyone’s favorite dish is this Raw Pad Thai, drizzled in a creamy chile peanut sauce! 🙂 It’s refreshing as a spring day—
On a bed of ice cold lettuce, you’ll find the crunchy rings of beet noodles, cucumber coins and slivers of jicama. A pop of cilantro lends an herbaceous, far-eastern flavor and the entire bowl is coated in a fiery, honeyed dressing, with just a flash of chile to balance the sweetness. So, let’s make it!!!
It all starts with a bowl of crunchy romaine lettuce…
Then I’m adding spiralized raw beet and carrot “noodles” …
Here is a link to my OXO spiralizer which I have had for 2 years and am completely obsessed with. I broke all the other ones I tried, but this one is heavy duty and I actually use it in my private chef business for many client’s food, so it gets A LOT of use!
Then we’re going to dice up and add jicama, cilantro, crushed peanuts, sprouts, cucumber coins, and a little bit of fresh avocado.
The recipe for Vegan Raw Pad Thai Sauce is good on anything from Tempeh to udon noodles… I make extra and store it in the refrigerator. The best way to make it is just to dump everything in a blender and give it a whirl. The flavor will enhance further after a few hours of marrying in the refrigerator.
When I’m famished from a day at the gym, the idea of a bowl of Raw Vegan Pad Thai with creamy peanut dressing is just too tempting to pass up! And why would you? With seared tempeh, it’s shockingly lean, but thoroughly satisfying.
This Raw Pad Thai recipe will serve 4 enormous salads, so for healthy, make-ahead lunches I pack a few salads in deli containers, for grab and go options. This recipe is sublime with lightly pan-seared sliced tempeh or marinated tofu. Pack the dressing in little cups on the side!!
