Yummy Thai Peanut Kelp Noodles & Veggies

Posted on Monday, July 11th, 2011

Pad Thai is one of my favorite dishes. I just love the savory peanut taste with fresh organic veggies and noodles. Kelp noodles are a new and amazing raw food that I was recently turned on to. Made with mineral-rich sea kelp, they are clear, crisp and just six calories per serving. I am not one to count calories, but that is definitely amazing!

 

Thai Peanut Kelp Noodles & Veggie RecipeI love spicy food so I jazzed up my peanut sauce recipe with a little red currie paste and cayenne pepper. If you don’t like spicy food, just leave those ingredients out, the recipe will still work fine without them. Also feel free to add your own veggie mixture to suite your taste. The following recipe is vegan, but meat such as organic chicken or Princeville Ranch grass-fed beef would make a great addition. All ingredients are available at Healthy Hut in Kilauea. If you are off island just ask your local health food store about the products mentioned below.

 

Thai Peanut Kelp Noodles and Veggies
Serves 2-4
Ingredients:
2-4 tablespoons coconut oil, for cooking
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 broccoli heads, cut into pieces
1/4 red cabbage, chopped (optional)
4-6 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 package of kelp noodles

For the sauce:
3 tablespoons organic peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 tablespoon fermented miso
1 tablespoon thai red currie paste
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
1-2 tablespoons cold-pressed sesame oil
water, for mixing

Heat coconut oil in pan and add garlic and onion. Burner should be on between medium and low. Sauté until onions are translucent then add broccoli and cabbage, toss and cover for about three minutes or more as needed.

Meanwhile mix all sauce ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add more water or sesame oil to get the sauce to the desired consistency, set aside.

Uncover and toss ingredients again. Add shiitake mushrooms and toss. Add more coconut oil as needed to keep ingredients from sticking to pan. Cover for another three minutes or more as needed to steam. Uncover and add whole package of kelp noodles. Turn off heat and toss all ingredients with peanut sauce. Serve in pretty bowls with chop sticks. Enjoy!:-)
