Raw Vegan Pad Tai with Carrot Ribbon Noodles Recipe

Want that savory, spicy Pad Thai experience, but could do without the gluten, sugar, and who-knows-what-else you get from restaurant Thai food? Here’s a RAW option using just fresh RAW veggies and our gourmet Raw Wild Jungle Peanuts!

These wild heirloom peanuts have grown in the Amazon for thousands of years. They’re an incredible source of protien and heart-healthy oleic Acid, as well as all 8 essential amino acids, resveratrol, coQ10, vitamin E, niacin and essential minerals.

Plus, they’re naturally free of the aflatoxins present in most conventional peanuts which are often the cause of negative reactions and allergies to peanuts.

    • - Soak coconut shreds in water for 2-3 Hours
