A perfect party-fun dish using fresh, simple produce with a rich and guilt-free sauce!! Less than 30 minutes prep. This dish is raw and vegan friendly but something that even non-vegetarians/raw individuals would enjoy. My Raw Vegan Pad Thai uses fresh young coconut meat "noodles" dressed in an addicting raw almond butter sauce. You'll crave it the next time you want Thai food ;)
My pad Thai is a perfect dish as we transition from winter to spring. So fast and easy to put together, you won't have to spend all that time in the kitchen and spend more time EATING! You'll definitely keep this recipe in your repertoire; keep the main recipe and switch up the ingredients! (IE add some fruit such as mangoes, papaya or kiwi) Don't think you can't eat this during other seasons! Switch up the ingredients for any local produce you think would taste great. —Stacy

In This Recipe
Sauce: Whisk all ingredients together. Adjust seasoning as needed. Start with 1 tablespoon of fresh young coconut water first. Add more to thin out until desired consistency.
Vegetables: Optional for the zucchinis - salt zucchini for ~30 min before serving. Rinse and drain. This takes out the excess water.
Rinse and drain the pre-salted zucchini (if using).
Optional Topping: Curry-lime spiced cashews: Lightly toss raw cashews in sesame oil then toss with the mixed seasoning. Lightly toast all ingredients together in a pan on medium-low continuously rotating. Or roasted cashews in an oven for 350F for 5-10 minutes, rotating half way through. Add lime zest and/or juice to finished cashews.
Optional: Gently peel purple cabbage layers layer-by-layer. Whole leaves serve as an edible "cups"!!
