t’s my raw version of pad thai. I used a ceramic vegetable peeler to turn zucchini into noodles and whipped up a raw version of a traditional peanut sauce using raw almond butter.
Add all the sauce ingredients to a bowl and whisk until smooth. Set aside.
Take out another large bowl or platter for the pad thai. Peel the skin off the zucchini and discard it. Then use a vegetable peeler to shave long strips into “noodles.” Peel as many noodles as you can for each zucchini. Chop up the mushrooms, green onions, and red bell pepper into strips or bite-sized pieces and add to the bowl with the noodles. Add in the snow peas, mung bean sprouts, and a sprinkle of salt. Mix the vegetables together with tongs, then drizzle the sauce on top. I recommend pouring in a little sauce at a time and saving leftovers if you have too much.
Serve room temperature with a sprinkle of chopped almonds and cilantro on top for garnish.
Tip 1: You can find nama shoyu online or in health food stores next to the soy sauce. If you don’t want to buy a whole bottle of shoyu, just use regular soy sauce. It’s not raw, but it’s only 2 tablespoons, and it’s much easier to find. Tip 2: I used a Kyocera ceramic vegetable peeler to make my zucchini noodles. Applying a little pressure when you peel helps the noodles come out a little thicker.
