Another simple and tasty (mostly) raw dish, goes to show you, not every raw dish is complicated. (Here’s another version of this same recipe.)

Pad Thai Sauce

I soaked the spiralized veggies over night in separate ziplock baggies, with a 1/4 cup water to 2 tsp sea salt, and tossed and turned the baggie every now and then.

To serve…

4) Mix sauce and noodles, and serve with garnish.

Garnish options:

  • Chopped cilantro
  • Thinly sliced scallions
  • Pine nuts, almonds or peanuts
