Pad Thai

I’ve been serving and delighting people with this simple Pad Thai recipe for a few years now. Asha Allen turned me onto this recipe when we  taught a Raw Food Basics Class together.  She did a demo of this. MMmmm! We had a lot of happy people that day! The recipe has gone through a few twists and turns since then, mostly because of necessity. I rarely ever make a store run for a recipe. I just  use what is on hand. So, here is the version that I’ve been making recently at our events.


1 cup raw almond butter
1/2+ cup orange juice (freshly juiced!)
1 T minced fresh ginger
2 – 4 T Coconut Aminos
1 t minced garlic
2 T honey
1/8 t cayenne pepper
a pinch of sea salt

Additional Ingredients

2 bags of Kelp Noodles





Blend all of the sauce  ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour over 2 bags of Kelp Noodles (you can find these refrigerated at Whole Foods) *Cut the noodles first otherwise you’ll get long stringy mouthfuls!

Allow to marinated for at least 10 minutes at room temperature. Stir often to toss/incorporate sauce and noodles well.

Add  chopped Basil and cilantro throughout.

Garnish with a bit of chopped basil, cilantro and scallions. *Chopped cashew nuts or jungle peanuts tastes great on top, too! Drizzle fresh lime juice.

Voila!! Soooooo yummmy …



  1. Coconut aminos ? Never heard of that one. Where can I find some so I can make this yummy meal I tried out at yesterday’s event?

  2. I would like to know where to get the Coconut aminos also. I live in Florida and have never heard of them.

  3. You can get Coconut aminos at Whole Foods and Sprouts
